Restaurants ...

Postby peter » Tue Sep 28, 2010 2:42 pm

Previously, there was a user review page for restaurants ( now at : http://the-languedoc-page.com/tourism/l ... s-old.html).

It became obsolete, and I've now substituted this page : http://the-languedoc-page.com/tourism/l ... urants.htm where I provide links to Graham Tigg and Trip Advisor.

In addition, visitors experiences can be posted below.

Was at Chez Philippe, Marseillan over the weekend.

This was one of the better restaurants in the Languedoc area, but closed last year. Now re-opened with new young owners it is starting to gather positive reviews.

€28 for a three course meal (5 choices per course) was good value for the food we had. Service and ambience was also appreciated by the group.

New owner : Mr et Mme Christophe Michel

we've never been disappointed at Chez toi Chez moi Béziers......I predict it will overtake the Cep d'Or

Quite a coincidence, went there about 18 months ago I (recognise the photos). Picked it out for an early season lunch for 6 of us based mainly on menu and it was quite soon after it opened.

It was a fine meal for the modest cost except that the parents of one of the owners were there and they took the orders which resulted in a couple of the starters being omitted. It's good to hear they seem to be doing well despite such family challenges.

Le Lyonnais d'Alsace, 15 Bvd Louis Blanc central Ales is just superb. A young Chef (Nicholas) and his entertaining wife (Delphine) provide excellent food (lovely french cuisine), great humour and good service. Weekday lunch (4 courses) is only 15 Euros .

Was at Mas de Baumes today for lunch with an organised tour.

Don't know about the menu or prices, but the food was fairly widely appreciated by our group.

L'Escale - Gabian

Postby Jennifer Sw » Thu Mar 31, 2011 1:12 pm

Hi

Just got back from having a 12€ lunch at L'Escale at Gabian, near to Roujan. A goodly stokeup of a large salade, including a 'cake'; then a goodly amount of Spag. Bol, and then fruit salade and including good red wine.

Last week had a heck of a meal at Hotel Residence, Nissan-les-Enserune for my birthday. You can eat there from €14 up to the €42 that we had for six (or it might have been 7) courses. Very nicely cooked food indeed, and you stagger out. We decided not to surprise me with a birthday cake at the end, as we just cannot force it down.

The world's greatest chef has had enough. "I don't care now whether I have three stars, or however many. Or whether I am No 1 or No 28," explains Ferran Adrià, the former plate-washer who has revolutionised high cuisine over the past 20 years.

What's Spag Bol called on a French menu, Spaghetti au Ragù perhaps. I thought it was a grossly Anglicised dish that didn't really exist in Bolognia/Italy.

Hi Graham

Spag. bol. is my (and most of Britain's) word for spaghetti au ragu. At l'Escale, they don't have a menu. They just serve it to you. As husband and I eat anything, we go there for a feedup when we don't feel like cooking.

"Spaghetti bolognaise" or "spaghetti à la bolognaise" usually.

It does exist in Italian, you can easily find Italian recipes for "Spaghetti alla Bolognese" or "ragù alla Bolognese".

Yes, and it's called Spaghetti Bolognese, or something like it all over Europe. The kids used to choose it, to avoid something worse, like anything with veal. They only told me this recently, 20 years later.

Not sure if this is the right place for restaurant recommendations but here is one anyway...

La Lisita, Nimes

Opposite the entrance to Les Arenes. This place is run by two ex-Gavroche guys. It has a nice dining room plus outside terrace in summer.

The food was excellent. Beautifully presented, great flavour combinations and some innovative little touches. The prices are very reasonable for this level of cuisine. Around 28€ for the evening menu. The wine list is also pretty good and has very low mark-ups on its higher priced wines, for example Gauby Muntada 2007 was 90€ copared to a retail price of 70€. I chose a Chave Hermitage 2005 for €99 which was well worth the experience. Kids meals are 11€ and of very high quality as well. The service was just a tad nervous but they probably had new staff.
