[-] Beautiful setting in a typical ardennian village. Fifthy shades of brown interior, country style.
[-] We took the door of the kitchen by mistake but were greeted with a warm welcome just as well. Lucky us, it gave us the opportunity to marvel the beautiful kitchen stove.
[-] What did we eat?
Amuse bouche. A stunning little potatoe soup with some chives, croutons, grey shrimps and pumpkin seed oil. After this little plate, we knew already 'this can't go wrong'
Penne with cream of foie gras perfumed with truffle and a little piece of baked duck liver. Just gorgious.
Scottish salmon en escabèche, romanesco, olive oil from 'les Baux'. Not sour at all, with deep full taste.
Porc, cooked at low temperature, a canelloni filled with mediterranean vegs, sweet-sour veal stock sauce, tomato flavoured. Big portion of meat, with big flavours.
First dessert (compliments of the house), banana espuma, with banana cream. Very light and delicate.
Second dessert. Destructured 'black forest'. Mmmm, very chocolaty and a tasty black cherry on top.
With the coffee came a dark cream of chocolate with some biscuits for dipping.
Only low point, if I may say, were the accompanying wines. The white one was a dry sauvignon Bordeaux and the red, a 'vin de pays' fruit bomb. Both rather ordinary. If I had known they were gonna serve the same dry white with the fish and the foie gras as well, I would have chosen some other ones from their beautiful affordable wine list.
On the other hand, now I learned that foie gras can very well be matched wit a dry fruity white, ha!
[-] Service was a little vigourous at first, but became more relaxed, and in for a little talk later on. That's how I like it.
[-] All in all, a very nice experience, worth it's money and a well deserved BIB.
