Besides all the negative comments here at trip advisor, I happened to like the Ambassade d'Auvergne. We went there without reservation and were lucky to find a table - not the best one, but at least we were seated. While translating the menu, the waitress offered an english version.
From the wine card we chose a cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon, Franc and Merlot. It was lighter than expected, but a good start.
When I asked for any vegetarian meal, the waitress was puzzled but immediately suggested a plate of vegetables. After explaining that I only don't want meat, she even suggest the aligot with it. By the way, we did not know that the restaurant was famous for the aligot (mashed potatoes with cheese), so we did not expect anything really hitting-your-sock-off meal. The vegetables were very good, quality instead of quantity and we did not find it on the check (either by mistake or on purpose?).
We kind of were forced into the typical French menu ordering, so we had the mixed cheese plate as a starter, duck breast and my vegetable plate as mains (both with aligot) and mousse o'chocolate and triple variation of cremes as dessert. We liked the food, but would not order the mousse again, since a huge bowle was served that would have been enough for 6 people. Impossible to finish. As well, be careful with the cheese. Not every kind is pleasant tasting for the foreign cheese taste.
In the end, we paid 90 Euro for the menus and the wine (2 people).
