The food in this restaurant was so good that my husband and I came here 2 consecutive nights when we were in St Remy. For a reasonable dinner price of 18 euros, we had a 3 course meal. The appetizers - seafood vol au vent and ham with mozzarella salad were delightful. The main courses were the highlights of the meal. I had the rump steak with potatoes on both nights as it was too delicious. The rump steak was well marinated and very tender. I did not expect such tenderness as it was not top quality steak. The potatoes that came with it were fantastic, pan fried till the outsides were crisp while the inside still soft. They were so good that I finished every piece of it on both nights. My husband ate the fish on the first night and lamb on the second. Fish was good but not spectacular. The lamb was great!
As for dessert I had the chocolate mousse but it was only so-so for me as I'm not a fan of mousse. My husband had ice-cream/sorbet on both nights and they were up to standard. In addition to the satisfying 3-course meal, the restaurant served a complimentary pre-appetizer of mushroom salad and post-dessert snack of some iced lime sorbet with meringue. I liked the lime sorbet and the meringue. The meringue was a little different from the usual. It was crisp on the outside like all the rest but in the inside, it was a bit chewy/spongy and it was great!
Service was also fast and good. The waiters came a few times to check if our food was good and if we are doing fine. An elderly man (I presumed he was the owner) came to our table after our meal and said something which we didn't understand. This was because he only spoke French and we only spoke English. But he was very friendly. We found out from the English speaking waiter that the elderly man wanted to ask if we enjoyed our dinners.
Two thumbs up for this little jewel!
