Lunch on a winters day
Autumn has been a tad gloomy in Provence this year with frequent rainy days and unusually mild temperatures. We have missed the normal cold crisp days and blue skies.
But with such fine restaurants as Le Bistrot de Lagarde open there are worse ways to cheer one self up and meet friends!
Low clouds linger in the valley whilst the Lavender looks quite different to its summer spectacle.
Exquisitely executed food is served here, the mixed entrees are a great way to start, then we had balls stuffed with banon goats cheese served on a lovely salad, followed by this excellent dish of prime cod served with a carrot risotto, ginger and foam.
Le Bistrot de Lagarde won a well deserved Michelin star this year, the couple who run it,
Lloyd Tropeano and his wife Laetitia are passionate about the food and service.
A simple yet tasty dessert of rhubarb tart.
The lunch menu starts at 23€ for three courses or there is the a la carte starting at 38€. Excellent local wines from chateau Eydin start at 9€ for a half litre pichet.
The restaurant will be closed from 14th december until mid March for a well earned break, make sure you book in advance for next year!
What ever the weather you`ll be smiling when you experience the food, value and service at Le bistrot de lagarde
