Page 13 of 28: Our Lunch at La Petite Cour and Puy l'Eveque

Rumsteak au foie gras

Another couple arrived while I was waiting and reading the menu. Their table was really close to ours. They said, "Hi," and sat. The man was very polite and asked me a permission to smoke. I don't really like the smell of smoke while eating, but since I was waiting I just said it is okay for now with a smile. He didn't smoke however at all when he saw our son.

The restaurant had a lunch menu as all of restaurants we have been to, but I decided to try the local cuisine as Cahors is renowned for wines and terroir. So, I chose a la carte a tatin de foie gras, which was delicious and big, served with a salad. I shared that with my husband. It was made sweet with honey, and although I don't eat much sweet, this was an interesting combination that I enjoyed a lot. Then I chose duck confit and my husband decided on a pave de rumsteak petite cour. The duck confit was good, but the rumsteak was really delicious, served with foie gras on top and with sauce. The meat just melted in my mouth when I tried it. All with a good rose wine. Our son had a child menu with vegetables and a salad included. He loves vegetables.

We had an excellent meal for €60 for the three of us a la carte.

After lunch we had a walk in Cahors. The bridge is really nice. We then decided on a picnic in Puy l’Eveque. It had taken us some time to get there because of construction works on the roads, so we didn’t stay long, just a short visit.
