This restaurant is well situated on the seafront in Fouras. The menu du jour du midi on the day of our visit was imaginative and refreshingly different offering a choice of chicken spring rolls or accras de morue to start, red mullet fillets in pesto sauce or beef stroganoff as main courses and fruit crumble or ice cream to finish. There were several other menus to choose from and an extensivce a la carte menu but we were both tempted by the red mullet so went for the menu du jour.
Alan’s spring rolls were of a good texture, the accompanying dipping sauce was good and spicy but he found the filling a little bland. My accras which were deep fried beigents of morue were delicious – light and tasty and served with a tasty salsa.
The red mullet which we both had and which was served with rice and salad, could not be faulted. The skin on the fish was lightly spiced and beautifully crisp, the flesh was moist and the freshly made pesto was excellent.
The desserts were not elaborate but Alan’s lemon ice cream was very good as was my crumble – a selection of lightly stewed fruits with a dusting of crumble over.
The overall eating experience was very good indeed – helped by the ambience as we were able to eat on the terrace in the warm sunshine overlooking the sea – all the sweeter in the first week of October,
Service was very friendly and efficient. The meal with wine and coffee came to 45 euros which was good value and this restaurant is a welcome addition to the eating establishments of Fouras and comes highly recommended. We will certainly eat there again.
