We saw the review in the Herault Times and thought we'd give it a go last Saturday.12th October. Friday is usually fish and chips day but it was on the menu and after 8 weeks in France it was too much to resist. Our starters were great, freshly made and plentiful. Fish and chips a la Flunch by Auchan was our one French venture into this quintessentially English dish and was a disaster. Here though the fish was market fresh Hake with a light, thin and crispy beer batter on top of a small mountain of chunky home-made chips with fresh tartare sauce and mushy peas all made by chef. Finished off with home-made peach frangipane and coffee - a feast for 4 hungry English folk! With three beers and a glass of red for an aperitif, a demi-pichet of red and rose (well, we are English!) the total bill was a lowly 74E for the four of us.
As we were appreciative of the quality of the food (and service) Johnny (Northants, Bayonne and Beziers RFC) sent the young (20) chef up - I think he's a Brum but may have misplaced his accent? He may be young but he's a good cook and this restaurant ought to go far.
Talking to Johnny he confirmed with the exception of bacon all his food is locally sourced and cooked freshly in the kitchen. He thinks he's located a local supplier of pork who will cut him some back bacon rashers rather than the usual poitrine so when we are back next year we will give his full English and his brunch a try as well as his Sunday roast.
By the way, Johnny, with his blue eyes was a great hit with Joan and Barbara both of whom wanted him gift wrapped for Xmas! The restaurant itself is a good mix of French and British decor and food - don't be put off by the rugby/Brit element - this is very good food!
(PS - at this time of year if you want to sit outside beware of falling conkers!!)
