We were on holiday in Charente and looking for somewhere special to celebrate my 40th birthday. Our hosts suggested the hostellerie, and wow did they get it right.
The food was out of this world and the service, impeccable. Our table was outside which was pleasant in the warmth of the late evening, but we were in amongst the swimming pool complex so there was a faint aroma of chlorine which detracted slightly.
All the usual perigord specialties on the menu, but prepared and presented perfectly. Cocktails, abuse bouche, Foie Gras & smoked duck. perfect. Confit duck. perfect. Tarte Tatin perfect.
The waiter recommended a red Sancerre which I had my doubts about but proved to be perfect for the mixed dishes we were eating.
And the bill was surprisingly modest
