Was lucky enough to get in without a reservation by going early and was not disappointed. Food and service was excellent. Waiter was very helpful when helping us choose. Would definitely go again.

We were lucky to get an outside table without a reservation. We were doubly lucky in that one of the waiters spoke English and took pity on us! His translation saved us from guessing at what we were ordering. I tried the salted duck tartare, which was very flavorful. Both my co-worker's beef sirloin and my lamb chops were nicely... More

I've been going to La Gourmandine for years and I would consider that in terms of the quality of the food, the atmosphere and the service, it is without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Clermont. Stéphane, the owner, has taken what was a small bistro next door (always great food) and turned it into a modern, stylish... More

Great atmosphere and service. Everyone is on point. Mood lighting and nice music. Exceptional wine list!!! Food was fine but lacked imagination. $34 menu started with nice entrée. Plats were ok but boring. Dessert lacked effort. Should of bought an $80 bottle of wine and 2 appetizers instead of the set menu and a $30 bottle.

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
