A fine choice in Clermont

Fourth or fifth visit to Avenue and we continue to be impressed. I understand that the restaurant was closed for a few months because the owner/chef was in a accident but they have reopened and I am glad for that.

Four of us had a fantastic evening here on our visit to Clermont Ferrand on Saturday 13th December and I felt I had to send a review. The hospitality and friendliness of the staff was remarkable and I cannot speak to highly of the food and wine. Would certainly recommend this amazing restaurant to anyone visiting the city. An evening... More

We had a brilliant evening here last Saturday evening. The restaurant is intimate and cosy. The staff were really helpful and nothing was too much for them. We loved our meal and the restaurant atmosphere. The singing afterwards was the cherry on the cake! Well done on creating such a success.

Just back for our trip to clermont ferrand, and had to write a review of this great restaurant. The food was sublime and the service and atmosphere second to none. do not miss the opportunity to eat here if you are ever in Clermont. Kristele was a delightful hostess and the food as mentioned was outstanding.

We only had two nights in Clermont Ferrand and were so fortunate to book the last table in the Avenue. Tucked away in old CF this tiny restaurant had a limited menu which meant each meal felt as if it was prepared just for us! Kristele was a mine of helpful information - in English if your French is not... More

We traveled in France for 3 weeks and this may have been the best of many good meals - it's a real find. The atmosphere is pleasant and not stuffy. The staff are lovely, and if you need English (language or menu), they have it. They have a fabulous house "kir" and the food is first rate in quality and... More

The positives, of which there are many, food is excellent, both in terms of choice, presentation and quality of cooking, service is excellent, with effortless English spoken and time spent going through the menu. No kids menu, which wasn't a surprise, they did however split a main course between the two of them. Much to our surprise they both devoured... More
