We were staying at the Novotel about 200 yards down the road and decided on the Saturday evening to go out for a meal rather than staying in the hotel. I had previously noticed this restaurant and seen it mentioned in Trip Advisor so decided to give it a go.
It turned out to be a good choice, the staff were helpful and although there were language difficulties we were soon seated and enjoying drinks.
After perusing the quite extensive menu we decided to try the Menu Plaisir du Chef, a set meal but with a number of choices for each of the courses.
My wife chose for her starter the Duo de jambon cru et melon à l'italienne and I decided upon Avocat aux crevettes roses mayonnaise acidulée.
These both proved to be nicely presented, my wife said that the melon was the best she'd had for some time.
For main course my wife had Sole Belle-meunière served with potatoes cooked in butter and a salad garnish. I had Confit de cuisse de canard"maison". Rather disappointingly this came with chips, whereas I would have preferred potatoes like my wife. However we had not been given a choice in that respect. Unfortunately something that seems to be lacking in many French restaurants is a choice of green vegetables? Where do all those wonderful vegetables that we see on their market stalls disappear to?
My wife declared that the fish was superb, pan fried in butter and to be honest I wished that I had chosen that myself. My Confit seemed to be a little overdone and not quite what I had anticipated.
Next came the Plateau de fromage that my wife declined but I thoroughly enjoyed with its selection of French cheeses, names unknown, though one was certainly goats'.
We both chose for desert the Crème brulée à la cassonade and that was delightful, with a crisp top and meltingly smooth beneath.
With accompanying drinks the bill, including quite a generous tip, came to around €70.
Apart from my Confit the whole experience was extremely pleasant and we wouldn't hesitate to return. Next time I'll pick the Sole!
