My wife and I had the pleasure of having dinner at this place last night.
We live in the area and did not know of the existence of this place. A friend of ours that is an accomplished old school CHEF (intentionally capital) invited us and the experiance was memorable. The setting of the place is unique, the arrangement inside is cosy and comfortable with plenty of space in every single room to make one feel at ease, the terrace set up is exquisite.
The moment the menu was presented to us we knew we were in very fine establishment. (seems that they grow their own vegetables ad vary them on season)
We chose to start with a tartare of tile fish and our friend had a house cured ham;
the presentation was brilliant and it was a delicate dish.
We then had some roasted tomatoes with pecans also very pleasing to the eyes as to the stomac.
Our main dish was a delicate breast of duck on a bed of herbs and a puree of swet potatoes; our friend chose the tile fish.All excellently prepared and displayed.
We certainly had no place for dessert but we were convinced to try their Napoleon with a banana flambe'.
The service which we found out was done by the wife of the owner/chef was gentle and perfect; the lady advised us and provided an excellent white and a red for myself and to summarize we can only say that we had a wonderful evening with an exquisite meal and a royal service threatment.
The place is an asset for the town and the region and we will warmly recommend it to our gourmet friends.
We personally thank our CHEF friend for introducing us to this unique place.
