Chez Gaston is a smallish bistro in the French style. The Belgian owner manages the place efficiently in a casual and friendly way. If you come back a second time you might be invited into the friendship circle. The bistro seats only about 20 or so diners at any one time and there is also a long bar where you can enjoy a pleasant glass of wine while waiting for a table. The menu is on a blackboard and the "man" likes the have a reasonably wide range to satisfy most tastes. A nice slab of French pate de fois gras is a pleasant surprise as a starter and yummy and tasty despite being frozen for a spell. For the mains we select a magret de canard which is nicely thick, perfectly cooked with just the right touch of seasoning and finished with a pleasant honey sauce. Our other dish is a tournedos de boeuf which is nicely pink and stunningly tasty. Hard to beat. And well accompanied by a yummy hot pepper sauce as a side. The wine list touches most of the main grapes and while it is not extensive the list is brilliantly priced. A nicely balanced and full flavoured Cote de Rhone at $15 is the perfect complement to the meal. And then there is the bill! We think we will be back to make friends.
