I noticed that there were a couple of mediocre reviews on Tripadvisor criticising the decor.
This is France for God’ sake!
Actually they have recently redecorated in shades of pale “marmotte” so of course it looks great.
House wine is so decent it’s hardly worth picking up the wine menu. Endive salad with walnuts and creamy blue cheese. Home made pasta is excellent and I recommend the creamy but not heavy wild mushroom/ oyster mushroom(pleurotes) sauce, just glimpsed here.
(Just had a thought.. pleurotes??? peyote??? no wonder it’s my favourite)
So Trev had duck, on a base of deliciously flavoured lentils. Came with fork, spoon and knife, so obviously A Serious Dish.
I got the home made tiramisu (mmmm!) what I thought was a straight chocolate mousse, but was in fact fudgier in texture and laced with sharp salted caramel ( great balance of flavours), and a square of dark chocolate patisserie that I assumed would be really sweet, until I was smacked round the chops with the face pulling sharpness of the bitter orange gel sandwiched in the centre! MMMMMMMMM… thank you Le Longchamp
