Claude Brioude

Open Wednesday to Sunday noon included

Claude, 42 years old, was born and raised in the Ardèche. Its nature and its landscapes, in their diversity, inspire his regional cuisine that uses healthy, flavoursome produce from organic and local producers, with whom he has a relationship based on trust and complicity. He also finds his inspiration in works of art and his travels these too encourage his natural inclination to search and experiment with different flavors and tastes...



Restaurant BRIOUDE

Depending on the season, you will dine either in a light-filled, refined setting overlooking the Ardèche valley, or on the terrace above a stream of blue hydrangeas.

There are also regular exhibitions, featuring local artists, that complement the surroundings.
