This restaurant is busy at lunchtime as a venue for the generally better dressed business people of Beziers. Service is brisk to fit in with their needs. There is a fixed menu with no options. Although the decor was agreeable, comfort was not a priority and the mixture of different chairs squashed in at our table was not inviting. The waitress raced through the menu as if it didn't matter, established whether we wanted the €17 or €25 choice and that was it. A bit like a work canteen. The starter of a Couquille St Jacques soup with a light dumpling was pleasant enough but the flavour of spring onion in the dumpling was overpowering for the soup. Next was a pork ragout, shoulder steaks cooked to a melting and rich consistency. The piece of pork was largish and was accompanied by the vegetables cooked with it in the intense sauce. Unfortunately, half my piece was fat and gristle and was inedible. Dessert was a millefeille with a chocolate mousse type filling and a tiny blob of something red and jammy which I think was cherry. I found the pastry overdone and the mousse a bit sickly. Cheese was an option for dessert, it looked quite generous. It was accompanied by some honey and a small pot of a mystery substance. When paying I asked what it was and told it was kaki fruit and ginger. A kaki is a persimmon in English but I know French well enough. When I said in French I knew what a kaki was, surprise was shown that I spoke French. I thought this rather rude. I feel sure from other very positive reviews, perhaps dinner is more relaxed and the food is less rushed. I enjoyed my meal with my friends but I must say it was the good company rather than the food which gave me the pleasure. Maybe I was expecting too much but the flair responsible for the Chef and restaurant's renown was evident in none of the dishes that I ate. No one can be consistently excellent, I must just have picked an "off" day.
