Looking back in my diary I realise we have been to Chez Miton six times now. Clearly we like the place and so do the guests we bring there. There's a very agreeable fusion of French and Asian flavours and the menu changes regularly. The style and the general feeling of the place remain the same, which is good. The quality is consistently good, and the owners (he front of house and she in the kitchen) are still there and clearly enjoying their work. In fact the only thing that has changed is the wait staff.
This visit started off on slightly the wrong foot with the waitress (new to us) proposed seating us at a table behind the door when there were other tables available, and then didn't handle my request to be seated elsewhere particularly well. It also ended on a very minor negative note when we were charged for three four-course menus while one of us had only had three. No big deal, but a pity.
Apart from this, things went fine and the wine and the food were all very good as we had remembered and expected. As we have always done, for drinks we went with the local pineau - an unusual and somewhat spicy/peppery light red. For the food we had terrine and crab salad as entrees (both very good) and filet de canette, faux filet, and filet de merlu for mains (all good, even if the faux filet was very slightly overdone). We all opted for the (good) cheese selection, finishing with straberries and cream and fromage blanc for dessert.
We like this restaurant and enjoy its choice of dishes on each visit. The ambiance is casual and pleasant and the setting on the Place de l'Eglise in Chahaignes is also nice. We'll be back.
