Reserved for Sunday lunch to make a return visit to one of my all time favourite restaurants. Greeted nicely by all of the staff who are real professionals.
Seated at a nice window table overlooking the town aperitifs were ordered and menus given. A really great and varied choice of 4 starters, 4 mains, cheese as an optional extra and 4 desserts at about 27 euros for 3 courses. The fillet of beef was at a supplement and if you were really hungry for a further supplement you could also have the fish course.
Amuse-bouche and Kir Royale went down well to get the palate working.
For starters we opted for the Nage of Langoustines which had 4 large langoustines in the nage along with julienne of celery and carrots. A beautiful dish to start the meal.
For main course we all chose Roasted Fillet of Cod sitting on a triangle of Crisp al dente Green Asparagus with Carrots and a Sweet Potato Puree. The Cod was a delicious perfectly baked portion enhanced by a Citrus Butter Sauce. Another great dish.
After the extensive Cheese board we had a selection of desserts. My own was made of two 3 inch macaroons sandwiched together with Fresh Raspberries and Mascarpone Cream and an intense Raspberry Sorbet and Lemon Verbena garnish. This was excellent.
Our wine choice was a local Sauvignon from the Coteaux de Layon at 14 euros a bottle. The wine had a gold medal and was an absolutely brilliant example of this cepage.
The people of Thouars and the surrounding area are so lucky to have this restaurant on their doorstep. My thanks to the Management and Staff who consistently work to give their guests a great dining experience with great value for money.
