We booked this restaurant from home on the basis of its rating and we were delighted. Superb cuisine, service and attention to every detail. Its a small no frills establishment and don't be put off by the exterior, but the food is really good. Booking is advised to avoid disappointment. It was full when we visited and they were turning...

During my six week stay in Clermont- Ferrand, I have been to Avenue multiple times and have always had a wonderful experience. Not only are the owners lovely, the service and food are impeccable. I will always recommend this restaurant with the highest regard.

It's the kind of eatery France is famous for: not cheap (100€ for two - we had the weekend à la carte option and were happy with it; the formule du jour à 15€ is a much quicker and cheaper affair they offer for lunch during the week), but all freshly made (the whole thing managed by 3 people!), nice...

Not only the food was amazing, but the services and the ambient was perfect. Anything in the menu is good and well prepared. You need reservation and dinner is more of an event than fast eating so be prepared to be there for at least 2 hours.

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. The Avenue has a nice wine list and a ever changing small menu that offers something for everyone. Just twenty... More

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.
