We ordered soup for starters and lamb for main. We enjoyed both meals and there are a variety of other options. We felt at home, the restaurant is cozy and the food felt very homie.

We were welcomed by Jacquie who was attentive and fast. The wine selection is surprisingly amazing and the food deeply satisfying.

I can see why Clementines is #1 in Clarens and there are excellent restaurants in this town. We stayed a week and tasted many. This restaurant is very unique with it's approach to having two rescue cats who live in and roam freely. The mussels,...salmon and trout were exceptional and very reasonable prices.More

Great ambiance and food selection from specials board that is brought to your table.The starters of blue cheese snails was devine.The fillet and steaks recommended was done to perfection.Creme Brule lacked a bit of oomph. Definitely worth a return visit.

This is rated as one of the best restaurants in Clarens for good reasons. Our steaks were done to perfection and our kids raved about the ribs and chicken. This really is a must visit restaurant when in Clarens.

Shelley Horton and her team continues to surprise and delight at Clementines! As always the food was exceptional, offering superb value for money. The portions are generous and the daily specials always leave you at a loss as to what to choose. The 500g rump...with caramelised onions and Camembert was done to perfection, and the lamb shank (a tried and trusted favourite of ours) certainly lived up to its expectations! An extensive wine list compliments your meal without breaking the bank either. Service was sleek but unobtrusive, despite it being an exceptionally busy night with nearly all tables occupied. This is definitely a must visit when in Clarens, but be warned - you may be tempted to come back again and again! As always Clementine the cat was keeping a watchful eye over the staff and the patrons, ensuring that everyone is having a fabulous time. Do remember to also do your part for animal rescue in Clarens by donating generously to this worthy cause after enjoying the superb hospitality.More

Very good service, very good food and exactly the style of dining we used too. Great place to enjoy a 3 course meal.

Given all the good reviews, this was our first restaurant visit of our trip. Since we have a little baby companion, we had to opt for lunch, which was lovely. The garden is pretty and creates a calm and relaxing atmosphere, as opposed to the...rest of the rustle and bustle of Clarens. We will one day return for a dinner visit. Keep up the good work.More

Having been served a disgusting meal in another venue in Clarens we were hoping for a better experience, we got it! I booked a table the day before and let them know that we were on holiday but the table was for our wedding anniversary....We were greeted and shown to a lovely table decorated with "I love you" "Happy Anniversary" etc. and were given our menus and the "Specials Board" by a friendly waitress. Clementine's has a well thought out menu catering for all tastes. The inside tables are in a more formal setting and there are outside table under umbrellas as well. All our courses were excellent, we are one omnivore and one pescatarian but both were catered for with first class dishes. My highlight was probably the best Pork Belly I have ever had and my wife enthused about the vegetarian pancakes. This restaurant has my vote any day in Clarens! P.S. Clementine is the cat, I wonder how many Clementines there have been over the years?More
