Fromelles is a village l visit often but have not until recently had the opportunity to stay until we discovered the magnificent 'Cote Reves' nearby, During our stay we ate for three nights in this beautifully designed restaurant/.café/bar due to the superb food wine and ambience. Greeted by the front of house manager and charming lady Patron who just happens to be a 'master of wine' renowned throughout France .. we immediately knew we had discovered a 'gem'. My French sadly poor due to making a mistake at school, French lessons to be told by the teacher ''the trouble with you is that you look intelligent, but your not ..leave the class'' not tolerated now but that well and truly shocked me and thus ended my French lessons.. and so back to the restaurant ,the manager who spoke perfect English guided us every night on the selections of wines and knew the entire ingredients of each dish.
He was so polite and knowleable about the food cooked by his parents who we met on the last night of ,all we can really say that the love and passion for good ingredients,recipes,presentation was faultless and each dish savoured was a delight Digressing again l cooked and was trained by chef Keith Floyd who later found International acclaim as a TV chef and cookery book writer. a true master of French cuisine and true raconteur who helped me on a journey of appreciating finely cooked
dishes cooked as was with this restaurant with a passion and love .. We have already booked to stay next year and cannot wait to return to this delightful establishment ..Oh l had on two nights the melon sorbet doused with Calvados. Another dessert dish was made with a 'secret recipe' and l guessed the ingredients but promised not tell !
PS they deserve a Michelin star !
