We had a terrific meal at Claude and Uli's. Oysters were delicious. Caesar salad was good -- though I would have preferred far less anchovy paste. Weiner Schitzel and Veal Normandy outstanding -- so glad we took waiter's recommendation to order these specialties of the...More

Lovely little restaurant with great service and friendly staff. Daily fish specials are always beautifully prepared and sauced with a light touch. A bit of France in the Low Country.

Not what I would have expected to find near Hilton Head. Quiet location in a plaza. Cute bar and bistro tables. Dining room didn’t have as much atmosphere. Appetizers were very good. Onion soup classic French. Delicious crab and avacado salad. Main courses there were...More

Wonderful food, attentive wait staff, and a no rush atmosphere make this a must try restaurant. Good selection of wines. Try the veal dishes - they are fantastic.

We eat at a lot of restaurants in Bluffton and HHI and this is in our top five. My wife had lunch there previously so we did dinner tonight. It was very good. Great forms and great service. I will be back again soon.

It's a small restaurant tucked in a strip mall near the bridge over to Hilton Head Island. The service was excellent from the welcome we received when arriving right through our meal - including the owners checking on everyone now and then. The food was...More

Hidden inside a modest shopping center area, Claude and Uli's is must-visit fine dining whenever you are in Hilton Head. The inside of the restaurant is large but intimate, with European decor, French background music, and a handsome bar area. Co-owner Uli greets visitors as...More
