It might even have been worth the walk from the campsite but the sun said no. So drove to a free car park alongside the river, found shade and walked across the footbridge. A couple of minutes later we were studying menus in the shade of an awning at No 14 of La Rue du Vieille Boucherie. One of us started with foie gras and the other with crevettes. The first with good bits of toast and the crevettes in the company of a lovely celery puree. Also asked for and got a generous glass of vin de paille which came a bit too dark and madeirised for my taste but went quite well with the foie.
We both had a sort of pave du veau which came with appropriate market veg ( young carrots and new potatoes) atop a nice brown gravy. Good veg; fine sauce; veau disappointingly over-cooked and dry enough for the sauce to make little difference. A mistake but we knew no better. The wine was a red Cotes du Rhone by Chavin; Not bad, but no great discovery either. The dessert, however was, for each of us a couple of pink macaroons making a sandwich with crème patissier and strawberries. Great.
Cost €104 altogether.
Sadly, budget precludes a return visit. In any case, we move on tomorrow.
