We ate at Le Clos on our second-to-last night on Amelia Island, and it was perhaps the best restaurant we enjoyed during our weeklong stay. The food is French, although I'm no expert on French cooking it was FABULOUS. The restaurant itself is a very close and intimate setting of tables in a small dining room. (Probably not best-suited for very small children.) The staff, including the manager (Julie) is always nearby to take care of your every need.
As I recall, they had some very nice bread on the table, which I bypassed in favor of my vichyssoise (potato) soup, which was out-of-this world good. I mean, you can tell when a soup is home made versus out of a can, and this was no contest...my "soup of the week."
For my main course, I enjoyed an entrée of scallops which were perfectly broiled and placed on small beds of seasoned greens. These were then arranged around a neatly wound cylinder of pasta, seasoned and topped with a little tomato. It was absolutely amazing...just as nice for the visual display as it was on the taste buds.
Speaking of visual effects, the owners/managers of Le Clos have spent a lot of time ensuring that their restaurant is also aesthetically pleasing. Even the doors to the bathrooms are painted in some amazing artwork. (See my photo below.)
If you go (which I highly recommend), get a reservation, and then say hello to Julie, the friendly and ever-present "matron-d." (I just made up that term!) She, along with her staff, will ensure that you have a wonderful time.
