Are you planning to visit France and the Auvergne? What a treat for food lovers! Here, you are visiting a region unrivalled for its cooking and famous for its Michelin guide including its ranking of the world's finest restaurants.
Always friendly and welcoming, our restaurants have scooped numerous awards. In the Auvergne, choosing the right restaurant comes down to a question of taste and often to labels. When you visit a restaurant covered by the "Tables Régionales", "Fermes-auberges" or "Auberges de Pays d’Auvergne" labels, you can be sure of authentic, traditional cuisine comprised of time-old recipes and produced using excellent regional products.
There are also other establishments offering a more contemporary approach to auvergnate cuisine where imaginative new combinations which are the fruit of experience, creativity and youth can be enjoyed. In these establishments, the chefs are referred to as "Toques d’Auvergne" (the toque is the French word for a chef’s hat).
