Not really much to say other than what I put in the title. The waiter was very friendly, the wine selection was absolutely perfect and the food was high quality! We tried their tart flambés which were nice and I had a chocolate/caramel pot for...dessert which was delicious. All in all, a lovely visit.More

Fantastic food well worth the wait as we couldn’t get in on the weekend as it was fully booked so advice would be to book in advance. Food was beautiful and well presented, good selection of wines. Very knowledgable staff and friendly.

What a great treat for a Friday lunch. We booked with our host Stephane the day before. We turned up on a rainy day in Wallingford and we were warmly welcomed into this bijou wine bar. It reminded us of our experience at the Vintage...Wine bar in Athens. The Alsace “pizzas” and charcuterie plate were delicious and the Loire wine was perfect. We accompanied the main dishes with a wonderful salad. The service and food were just impeccable. We would really like try this wonderful venue in the evening. It will require an overnight stay close by - watch this space. We will be back !More

Visited one Sunday after a leisurely walk along the Thames. We had booked and were given choice of sitting inside or outside in the little lane. As it was hot we decided to sit indoors. Fabulous menu, simple yet loads to choose from. The main...attraction were the Tarte Flambes which is a French thin pizza. Being hungry we went for one each but this could have easily shared two between three of us. We decided on the Gratinee which was cheesy and deliciously garlicky and two others which were on the specials board. One was asparagus and tomato while the star of the show was the wild garlic and pesto, absolutely gorgeous! Accompanied by a simple tomato salad it was divine. We washed it down with a beautiful French Riesling, slightly dry and utterly refreshing on such a hot day. We had desserts too! Wine list is to die for, mainly French and you could have a different bottle every week there were so many to choose from. I remarked to the owner that it was a good job I didn’t live close by otherwise I would be in here every week! Try it, you won’t be disappointed!More

We were looking for a place to meet up with our son and daughter mid-way between Hampshire and Birmingham. Oxford would have been the obvious choice but we didn't want to go to a city, so chose Wallingford as a nearby alternative. We chose Le...Clos on the strength of their Tripadvisor reviews and also that they offered a range of vegetarian options not just the token 1 or 2. We had never tried Le Clos' speciality Tarte Flambée before so were intrigued. Although superficially pizza-like, it is to pizza what goujons are to fish fingers. The razor-thin crust and use of creme fraiche, pesto aspargus and fromage blanc amonst other ingredients elevate the dish to a more refined plane. Don't get me wrong I love pizza and fish finger sandwiches (not at the same time), but when going out to eat I want try something different from what's available at home. My son and I shared the charcuterie board, while our vegetarian family memberss did the same with the Mediterrean board. The charcuterie board was delicious with a range of high quality cuts of continental hams and salami together with artisan bread, butter cornichons and cherry vine tomotoes, although the quanitity meant it was perhaps better suited to 3 sharing than 2.More

We enjoyed a fabulous Saturday night at Le Clos. The food choice was vast and everything we tried delicious: Tarte flambe, charcuterie, fish rillete and cheese. The wine flights were perfect, the staff polite and attentive and the ambience spot on.

We weren’t booked in but Stephan squeezed us in and I’m so glad he did. We had a beautiful meal with a bottle of champagne to enjoy the start of our staycation honeymoon! Frambes are beautiful and sharing platters (we had charcuterie) probably the best...I’ve had. Just wish we had longer to sample the great selection of wines they offered.More

Tarte Flambé is wonderful. On a Sunday night we wandered past and noticed it was open. We had seen good reports, but needed to try it out. Firstly, the wine here is good. Great choice and something for every palate (and wallet). We ordered Tarte...Flambé to try. It was Superb. If you haven’t had one before, think thin crispy pizza but with Creme Fraiche instead of tomato sauce. The base was light and crispy- think of a water biscuit, but larger. I’d suggest one per person. When we moved to Wallingford, we bought a take out. Again really good. Since visiting, I’ve tried making Tarte Flambé, but can’t get the base as good as this even in the pizza oven. If you have the option - go! You will not be disappointed.More

This has to be our favourite place to go for an informal bite to eat in Wallingford. Usually need to book as space is limited but the service from Stephan and his staff is always great, casual but attentive. Not too expensive for lovely food...and a wonderful selection of wines. You have to try this place if you haven't already.More
