The name is a reference to the French word for high-quality wine, because the restaurant has a wine cellar that boasts the best wine in the country.

Clos offers three different menus. To get the best deals, go there for lunch. Our personal favorites were the spider crab in pumpkin sauce, the marinated deer sirloin, hake in a spicy bird’s eye chili sauce, and quail in a boletus sauce.
