Not long ago, I posted about the Auberge du St Rémy, which was closed for alterations for most of last year. Well, I am happy to report that it has re-opened as a restaurant and bar. Naturally, we just had to give it a try.
We thought the name of the restaurant was a bit strange, something to do with a seagull. Inside it looked very new and clean with incredibly bright colours on the walls.
The regular cheap lunchtime menu was not on offer, presumably as it was Easter Monday, so we decided to push the boat out and go “à la carte”. We were not disappointed.
We had starters of goat’s cheese salad and fois gras, mains of fish and pork and desserts of crème brûlée and chocolate with banana. It was all delicious, beautifully presented and sensibly priced. Definitely worth another visit to ensure they are maintaining standards !!
We are however, sad to report that the little restaurant at Barou, Les Tilleuls, has closed. Apparently there has been some family trouble and the owner’s parents kept it going for a while but have now given up.
Which just goes to show that as one door opens, another door closes.
