You may think I have swallowed a dictionary of superlatives, or that I have some vested interested in this restaurant, but neither are true; this is simply the best restaurant I have even been to. A good restaurant has to offer a mix of good food, good service and lovely comfortable surroundings and this offers all three in abundance!
I am always nervous that each eagerly anticipated visit will end up a disappointment as I have this restaurant on such a pedestal, but the exact opposite occurs. Every visit simply reinforces our love of this restaurant.
The ambiance is simple but chic and the outside dining area is enchanting. The menu is limited without being restrictive and the food is perfect in every way; never over engineered and the chef/proprietor manages to execute the perfect balance of flavours, no flavour ever too dominant so that the subtlety of every dish can be enjoyed. He will also always try to accommodate his guest’s preferences.
We again dined on foie gras; this time cooked with caramel and cider and served on a bed of 'mash' ....the best combination I have ever tasted. We then ate tenderloin of pork, served with a beautiful morel jus, a millefeuille of potato and the most exquisite carrot and cumin puree .....how can he always get it so right!
We finished with their selection of desserts, which must never be passed over. The selection is never the same twice and just when we think we have eaten the most delicious, the next dessert on the plate throws yet another surprise.
The owners of this lovely restaurant always make time for their Customers and ensure they understand their customers and their needs. The carafes of water are never left empty, the bread basket constantly replenished with warm homemade rolls and the warm and engaging staff ensure they are always available but never intrusive. They also treat children with the same level of respect and care as they do their adult guests, which, from my experience, is extremely rare.
They have just introduced a new wine list, which is ideal for us as it guides you through your particular wine taste preferences, rather that confusing you with region; so if your preference is for a dry, fruity white you can find it with ease. We again went for the absolutely delicious Sancerre.
This restaurant is beginning to become really well known, so it is now advisable to book in advance, although they always try their best to accommodate you without a booking if feasible.
Again I would say, NEVER go to Cajarc without visiting this restaurant ....in fact try to find a way of visiting it, where ever you are in France!
