A meal here is like a visit to your grandma's house where she concocts her little delicacies. This gratifying interlude is a chance to feast on seasonal products that are worked into authentic and generous dishes. The salad of green beans elevated by shavings of home-made foie gras is a case in point. As for the casserole of Landes chicken, the mere sight of its caramelised skin already whets our appetite: a real treat! The flower-bedecked terrace offers a real change of scenery, just a few miles from the capital.
