We are a couple from New Zealand along with a couple from Belgium. We meet somewhere in France every two years and always try to find a great restaurant for our last night together. To find such a restaurant in a small village was a surprise to us. The food was superb.
We were a little surprised the person serving us, having heard us speak English, presumed we didn't speak French. I have to say, she was right in my case, but not my husband, and of course our Belgium friends speak very good French also. However her English was excellent and she was very pleasant.
It is good when hotel staff speak English, but it is also nice for us to try our French. Mind you they probably get annoyed when we don't speak it very well, but we feel it is polite for us to at least try.
I had chicken with spatzle in a wine sauce, my husband had Red mullet,one of our friends had salmon and the other the local fish. Everything was cooked to perfection.
It was a very nice meal to end the last night with our friends. A must to try if you are ever in Orbey.
