Simply amazing

This place is one of the 'must try' in Clermont. Meals are very, very tasty and nicely served. No matter what you'll take - you won't regret and what is more, you will start to think about next time in here. Definitely one of the best!

We stayed in Clermont-Ferrand for one night on our way back from Spain to the UK, stayed at Hotel le Lion in Place de Jaude, and the receptionist recommended La Gourmandine as a good place to eat. The decor and atmosphere were inviting, and we were made to feel very welcome. We all opted for the fixed price menus which... More

Due to utterly bad planning we found ourselves in Clermont Ferrand for an evening. We toured around a bit and saw that there mere many options in town to eat...especially late as we arrived after 9pm. We walked by La Gourmandine and saw what people were eating. It looked good enough to be interesting so we asked if there was... More

If you like Chantilly, you'll love the bucketloads served here. Decent atmosphere, unadventurous cooking, set menu and definitely average fare. Cream parked forcefully in every course. Unimaginative, although there's a sense that the staff work very hard, so maybe it's a profit motive that comes first

A little restaurant tucked away from Place de Jaude, jovial and warm welcome with a very smooth service, the room itself is very small making the whole place very noisy, you may have some very strong smell coming from the kitchen during the service, not unpleasant smell but a cooking smell that may perdure on your wooly jumper few days...

I went there following the good reviews and because I love crepes. The savory crepes choices were not very imaginative, so I ordered the regular jambone/fromage, advertised at 10.5 CHF. The order was fine, whole wheat crepe, plenty of cheese, making it very salty, but imagine my surprise, when I was asked to pay 15.5 CHF! Bad taste to argue,... More

Having seen many good reviews for this place we were a bit disappointed. The staff were very cordial but the food was not very exciting and unmemorable, the atmosphere a bit dull, but the abiding memory will be the flies. Lots of them. All over the shop. Not a good sign!
