The first time I wandered by this place my mind screams oh god the signage
But surprise surprise this is a rather excellent place to have lunch. It’s on the same square as my previous post on La Table Venitienne believe it or not right beside it the terrace is practically joined.
Today saw us there for the lunch time special Plat du Jour (dish of the day) and the lunch time menu.
I immediately saw the Plat du Jour and thought to myself god I miss Spain and the cooking. The plat du jour was a “Spanish” Gratin for the love of god they knew I was coming. Next thing I know we’re being given 2 glasses of Sangria on the house which seems to be a Friday special but given it’s the 13th of July the day before Bastille day a lot of people will be taking a long weekend. (PS: They normally give a free glass on Fridays for those interested.)
Struggling through the sangria we both waited for our food. Val chose to go with the Full Menu and I chose just to go with the Plat du Jour. The Full Menu comes with a lovely choice of salads from a salad bar and there’s quite a bit to choose from. It always comes with a half bottle of house wine ( Red / Rose ), a desert and a coffee. That one comes to the price of €12.50 (which is reminiscent of spanish menu del dia prices)
My plat du jour came and I have to say it was lovely (I’ll be trying to cook something similar shortly and hopefully not failing too badly) The table wine was … table wine :) perfectly nice.
I rarely have deserts and I opted out of having the Menu special ( which is a grilled meat of some kind or the plat du jour ) BUT Val doesn’t really drink and well she tends not to go near the coffee so it was all MINE!!! :)
All in all I loved it. Extremely friendly staff … the location as on the previous post was rather excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed myself no doubt the sangria helped but .. SHUSH)
All in all I’ll be back seriously at the price the quantity of food and the staff you’d be mad not to. Doesn’t hurt it’s only 5 minutes walk away from our place.
Roll on Bastille Day :)
