Lovely restaurant in Maconnais region

We wanted something special for our last night in France after nine weeks away. While visiting the wonderful church in Chapaize, we spotted this small restaurant and made a booking for Friday night.

On arrival we were greeted by Giles who informed us we were the only ones (is that good or bad - a whole restaurant to ourselves!) The menu was fixed with only one choice for the main course.

We realized Giles was everything - front of house and chef - but who would know. We had a great meal. Another couple arrived without a booking so we were no longer alone. For 38 euros per person we had a wonderful meal with great service.

The entree was foie gras with velou de courg (a pumpkin puree - how was it so rich and creamy?) The main course was a choice of salmon or charolais steak - we both had the steak cooked medium perfectly with glace navets (turnips) and veggies.

This was followed by a cheese course of Regale de Bourgogne de raisin on a bed of mache. Dessert was to die for -Grand Marnier souffle with vanilla ice cream.

The entree, mains and cheese were accompanied by homemade bread rolls. We had a lovely red wine and finished with a tres vieux marc de Bourgogne.

It was perfect. Giles gave great service and a fabulous meal.I'd go back to-morrow if I could. This is a wonderful area. We did not have great weather but still loved it.
