Excellent food, warm and caring service, and good ambience all add up to a great experience in this very special restaurant. It's a real treat to not be in a place that has a cookie-cutter feel. Owners Claude and Uli as well their daughter and other people working there do a superb job.

Many places I go the off season can mean 'iffy' on all aspects of the dining experience - well NOT here. Everything was 5 Stars and of course I had to have Oysters on the half shell and their special and a house labeled pino - all were delicious and highly recommended. You will will not go home Hungary!!!

After that, it gets a little pricey to eat there very often but I have never had a bad meal, just some that I would have been able to pay a little less for.

Uli was an amazing hostess and made us feel as part of the family as soon as we entered. Service was impeccable and quick. My husband ordered the She... More

I have been to this charming French Bistro twice, both on New Year's Eve, several years apart. I had the prix fixe menu- delicious oysters on the half shell, beef Wellington, and a mango mousse cake. My date had the oysters and veal Oscar. Everything was perfect, even on such a busy night. They have a nice wine list as... More

This was our fourth Christmas dinner at Claude and Uli's and it was as wonderful as ever. Whether you choose the prix fixe or order ala carte, you will not be disappointed. Terrific presentation, service, and taste.

Visiting bluffton for the day and found this hidden gem by accident. Went in for lunch and had a marvelous spinach salad, dressed up so beautifully by the chef. Wish I had taken a photo of it. Service was excellent, the salad was delicious and the atmosphere was cozy and inviting!
