Auberge du Grand Gousier was on our list of must-dos during our stay in Lonlay L'Abbaye 10 minutes drive away. Fortunately we sought it out early on in our trip having stopped first at the tourist office to be told it was open every day but then to find for ourselves it was closed for vacances!
Luckily it opened again before we were due to leave so we went back on the first day while they were cleaning to book for Sunday lunch. That we called in was lucky because both rooms were completely booked but they showed us an available option, a sort of addendum in the rear room.
However there was no need for concern. When we arrived the place was heaving with French groups but we were recognised, welcomed and seated quickly and the drinks soon followed.
I chose the Euro 40 menu and my wife the Euro 30 - both four courses. And the difference - mine was seafood and her's, meat. Apart from that the excellent and plentiful selection of cheeses & desserts were the same. Either way, both were beautifully presented and fabulous quality food, served perfectly by staff who know their craft.
In all, the best couple of hours of our holiday. The one disappointment - we only had the opportunity for one meal there!
