Excellent, very good quality at an affordable price

We had lunch there. The restaurant was almost fully occupied. The lunch, at a price just below 30 Euro, 3 courses, consisted of fresh sardines as a starter, delicious. Main course "ombre chevalier", a delicious fresh water fish from the deep lakes near Switzerland. Delicous spices and fresh... read more

We were recommended the restaurant by friends and wanted to experience the great food and service for ourselves.

Emma and Patrice have created the most amazing fish restaurant in the heart of France. Their menu Grand Large shows off all the talents of this Michelin starred restaurant. Make a detour and dine here.

Oh Yes! I was tempted to leave the review with just those two poignant words, but I think Emma and her staff deserve a little more, but even these words probably won't do justice to the culinary masterpiece served up to us on Saturday night. We were in town for the rugby, 5 of us, friends who follow Leinster around... More

Even the silver cutlery is a good match.But most importantly the food,mostly based on fish and sea food, is very delicious,imaginative .A perfect meal served... More

Nice location in the centre of Clermont Ferrand. Decor is totally white, walls, tables, flowers. Good classic cuisine but only fish on the menu. Not one single dish of meat.
