My wife, mother and I visited La Forge as it was located near our apartment. We visited quite late at night and were greeted by a friendly waiter and seated near a handful of other guests, mostly French.
The restaurant is cosy and decoration is dated, but in a good way, and definitely fits well with the food that is served. There is quite a good wine list of French wines available.
For entree my wife and I ordered the trio of foie gras, one lightly sauteed with berry and pear, one sliced thinly and with honey on bread and one like a terrine with toast - all were different and tasted amazing! My mother had an entree of escargot with a creamy bacon and garlic sauce which I tried and was very tasty.
My mother had a lamb shank for main, which was cooked well and falling off the bone. My wife and I had duck, my wife the duck breast, cooked medium rare, with blackcurrent sauce and I the confit of duck. Both were completely different and so so good! The confit was nice and fatty but not too much so, and the meat fell away from the bone with little effort.
We didnt feel like dessert, however had to try some as the entrees and mains were so good. My mother had a pear and peach tart which she said was 'magnifique'. My wife had a great creme brulee and I had a very tasty nougat ice cream with a nice glass of port.
The waiter was very attentive and friendly and the chef came out to ask if everything was OK, chat and take out dessert order - the people, as well as the amazing food really made for a great night out.
The final bill came to only approximately 150 euro, which given the standard of the food, was a bargain for a three course meal with wine. Will definitely visit again and if you are after some well cooked French traditional, I definitely recommend.
