Excellent food, friendly service and lovely ambiance. Not the cheapest place to eat in the area, but certainly one of the best. Having said that, it's still possible to get a very good set lunch menu for about 20€. Whatever you do, avoid the only other restaurant close by! We have only eaten here, but if the decor in the restaurant is anything to go by, the rooms should be worth looking at. Nice to dine in style with crisp linen napkins!

We booked for the special New Year's Eve meal and found that the hotel was offering a room and breakfast at a very good rate €50, so we decided to stay, as did our friends and were then amazed that our dog was welcome too.
We arrived at 15.30 and were shown to our room, it was beautifully presented and had a superb bathroom.
We went into the restaurant just after 8 in the evening and were treated to a wonderful meal with good recommended wines. There was music in the background and, at times, everyone joined in. The atmosphere was great and, at midnight, everyone got up to welcome the New Year in together.
This was a very special evening and it was made particularly good by excellent, friendly service - thank you

Went with friends for lunch. Not sure if to eat inside or out, but that decision was made for us by the waitress who said inside was closed for lunch. We chose our table in a delightful outside setting, under the shade of a beautiful tree. We were among the first to arrive and within 30 minutes, the place was full. We all chose €41 menus and the result was mixed, bordering good. An amuse bouche was offered along with aperitifs which took an age to arrive. Actually, it was the spotty and disjointed service that I remember most. As for the food, it was good but as the titles suggests, not great. Was really looking forward to eating here based on some positive reviews. For me however, it just did not quite make the grade and what it purports to be...a gastronomic delight.

We stopped coming to the Clau del Loup some years ago but we've been told that it's now under different management and certainly this lunch was a vast improvement on past times! We hadn't eaten outdoors on previous occasions so it was a pleasant surprise to be seated in the garden this time.

The shaded terrace is a superb location for outdoor eating and, despite most tables being full, the service was efficient. The 'Formule' menu was good value for €20.

On the downside I did notice that there was a CD player set on one side of the terrace and, judging from other reviews here, you might be treated to the waiter's favourite music during your meal! Fortunately it was left untouched during our visit.

A delicious meal beautifully presented by charming staff in a delightful garden area. What could be better on a hot summer's evening?
