I would go back to this area just to eat here again. They served such creative food and the service was amazing (we were one of two parties there that night so we could spend a lot of time practicing our French with the server). My husband ordered an entrée and plat, and I, a plat and dessert. His entrée was a tomato and whipped mozzarella concoction with gelatinized balsamic frisé and caviar. It was beautifully plated and tantalizingly tasty. For plat, he had the lamb and I, the vegetable lasagne. The lasagne came with succulent, steamed, mixed veggies under a blanket of homemade pasta with frothed green and red sauce. The combination of flavors danced on my tongue. His lamb was perfectly done (he asked for a pink center) and had tasty garnishes of phyllo-sliced potato triangles, stuffed hot pepper (little), and other curiosities—again, all amazingly tasty and fun. For dessert, we shared the caramelized wafers with layers of coffee-flavored mousse. I don't generally like coffee, but this was mouth-watering, plate-licking good. The meal was so delicious that I even asked for an espresso at the end and thoroughly enjoyed it. Did I mention, I don't drink/like coffee? To top it all off, we enjoyed a sunset that set the vineyards aglow in purples and oranges and walked back to our B&B through the vineyards after dark.
You should absolutely go out of your way to eat here. That said, we walked to it and it's in the middle of the vineyard so I haven't a clue how we would get there if we were driving there. But a beautiful walk through the vineyards only adds to the magical, whimsical ambiance of L'Atelier de Candale.
