Unfortunately we trusted the Michelin Guide too much when we booked this Auberge for a weekend stay. It was over rated and over priced. Yes, it was listed as a restaurant with rooms, so we were not surprised with the thin walls and poor sound proofing. What we were surprised with was the food. We ate a la carte, so as to give full rein to the chef, only to find it run of the mill (bulked up salads followed by meat and two veg). There was no flair or even mild sophistication. The wine list was also heavily over the top. The food
inc wine for two was £100 (two courses) room £60 breakfast £15. The comfort level was also questionable - stiff seating - table positioned over radiator - stainless steel cutlery with water marks and slow service. There is obviously a market for this type of food but for how long?
By contrast our lunch (a la carte) on the same day, in the centre of Calais, at a restaurant rated by Michelin two below that given to the Auberge was far superior - with innovation and changing fresh-produce menu.
If you wish to stay in a converted group of farm buildings in the middle of a rural community with simple cooking then this is the place for you.More
