I am truly surprised at the few less than ecstatic reviews about this restaurant. Obviously, one's lasting impression is inextricably linked with the actual dishes one selected and may have been totally different if an alternative selection had been made.
In my case, I started with the escargots which were, for me, the only indifferent part of this meal, yielding little of the cardamon and roquefort flavours which commended themselves to my appetite. My partner was delighted by her Opea de saumon with its strange, cakey base and by the the Dos de Cabillaud (a kind of cod) that followed. For me, the filet mignon de cochon was sublime. We had 2 desserts, the best of which was the coffee conconction which combined smooth jelly with crunchy elements. The other dessert whose concept was a sweet lasagne was let down only by the fried crust whose flavour wouldnt quite leave the pallette.
This is exactly the sort of restaurant I aspire to eat in when travelling around; where the chef relentlessly challenges his guests with unlikely and improbable combinations of flavours and innovative presentation. These are the hallmarks of Michelin star quality restaurants and if this chef doesn't eventually get this acolade, then life truly isn't fair. Oh, and by the way, the house rose wine was the best I have ever tasted!
Give this place a go; it's in the middle of nowhere and even on a Friday night, only half full. It deserves to be supported!
