Great place for lunch

I had a cod special for lunch and it was great, with a very gourmet presentation. It is in a small strip mall right by Moss Creek , so the view was not fantastic, but the food is worth it. Service was efficient and friendly.

If you missed out on all the special entrees during the holiday season, now is the time to plan for your next visit, possibly for Valentine's weekend. The menu is always carefully delivered and fresh, something for everyone. There is always a wonderful Souffle for dessert, never to be missed.

Food and service is among the best on the or near the Island - just on the mainland side of the bridge. Both Claude and his wife Uli are a pleasure to chat with. Both are fully involved in making the evening or visit a first rate experience from greeting to the last sip of coffee. Interesting French/international menu with... More

A local favorite. Make sure to ask if they have the roquefort souffle salad. Great lunch and dinner. Old world feel and service.

On February 2, 4 of us visited the Bistro which is located acoss the bridge leaving Hilton Head. The Bistro proudly claims as a simple 'ma-and-pa' restaurant. I was surprised by its size and delighted at the owner's sense of humour of the painting facing the bar. We were greeted warmly by our waitress who gave us lots of help... More

We stopped in for a wonderful lunch. I had a fish sandwich that was one of the best. Very fresh fish prepared perfectly. This is a very friendly cozy place.

I should have known better than to visit a new restaurant during restaurant week, or any restaurant for that matter during that week. Claude and Uli presents a charming setting, good service, but disappointing food from start to finish, at least it did last night. The wine list offers excellent wine at very fair prices. The regular menu offers some... More

Claude and Uli were very friendly and welcoming and the soufflé was out of this world. The sSauerbraten also was authentic and very tasty. We will be back!

New to the Hilton Head area we had been told many times about Claude and Uli's. We finally got the chance to visit, and should have come much sooner! We had a lovely dinner and were please they were able to accommodate us later in the evening. The service was fantastic, food delicious, and Claude was a delight. We will... More
