Conversely, in the same town an evening later, we had an excellent evening as we savoured several courses from the 'gastronomique' menu at Restaurant Zoko Moko. The environment was comfortable and there was no piped music! The gentle bubble of conversation and sounds of enjoyment were enough. And for this outstanding fayre, we didn't pay much more than the previous evening. Let photos tell the story!
Le tout Canard.
Morue de ligne facon Viscayenne, piment padrones, ail rose.
Boeuf de Pays Basque, la joue en Basquignon, le filet juste saisi, condiment bearnaise.
Washed down with a chilled Sancerre, each mouthful was tantalising and totally satisfying. Each plate displayed the chef's passion and commitment to his art. Truly a moment in heaven!
