Our first visit to this restaurant and certainly not our last! Although the restaurant has a Michelin star and 16/20 in GaultMillau it has not been a must go to. The web site was unavailable for a long time and we wondered whether the restaurant still existed; passing by, the menu outside was in a rather sad state. But we certainly enjoyed our visit. It is in a hotel in an early 1900s building; the entrance lobby is dark with wood panelling and floors but the restaurant, with high ceilings is light and airy. As it was a warm day we sat on the terrace and the awning was put to use when a storm passed over.
We chose the 32€ menu which has four choices for each of the starter and main courses and a dessert trolley.
Amuse bouche – cream cheese mousse with a tomato and basil couli
Snail ravioli in a garlic and cream sauce or
Homard rillette on potato wrapped in smoked salmon
Main course
Gallette of lamb on a bed of ratatouille or
Brochette of lapereau or
calf kidney
Desserts from the trolley – as many as you could decently choose (!!) from
chocolate and raspberry cake, white chocolate and nut gateau, peach tart, rhubarb tart, crème anglais, skewer of grilled fresh fruit, warm tarte tatin, raspberry sorbet, cherries, melon, peaches, strawberries….

A very enjoyable and tasty meal.
