We met the new owner, Muriel, who hails from the Alsace, and were confident that she and her husband Laurent would soon have a fabulously successful eaterie perfectly placed on the D117 for tourists and locals alike.
This time I had the hake in a shallot sauce.
I have eaten A LOT of seafood in a lot of countries but this was up there in the top three. Our desserts were amazing too.
This place is great, the food is sublime, Muriel and the staff are perfect hosts; so why aren’t they pulling in the punters as they should? Check it out!
Then, in Tesco’s UK, we found a wine from this little town, Cases-de-Pène, or Cases de Pena in Catalan. Look up the wines of the Languedoc Roussillon, particularly those of the Agly
The local vineyards here have kept their old Carignan and Grenache grapes and you can tell. Best wine under a tenner I have tasted this year.
And , before you fellow wicked wine drinkers suggest that I was prostrate upon the rug when I took the photo above.. I was not.
And the Restaurant l’Egrappoir? Use it or lose it…
