A fantastic evening at a unique restaurant in the Morvan. It is situated at a beautiful lake and the food is delicious.
Just before we go back to the Netherlands, and leave the Morvan (Burgundy/France) for about 6 or 7 weeks, we decided to dine in one of our favorite restaurants here in the Morvan. We thought we deserved it because that morning we had a rather unfortunate event in our house. Tomorrow I will write about what happened in our house, but first our lovely evening.
The restaurant is a half hour drive away from us in Moux-en-Morvan, but that does not matter because the ride to it is beautiful. We pass the 'Lac des Settons' a beautiful big lake surrounded by a forest and a popular holiday destination for many here.
We stopped to take some pictures of the setting sun at the lake. The smell of the warm forest soil was great.
It was about 8.15 pm.
We arrived at the restaurant at 8.30 pm and I couldn't resist taking some pictures of the outside. it is unique in its kind, both outside and inside.
We were greeted by the owner. A somewhat older, slightly crooked, sweet woman who runs the restaurant with only one help and is open 365 days a year. To be sure that you can dine or have lunch here, it is better to make a reservation.
It was still fairly early for French standards and it was still quiet inside. This allowed me to take a few photos of the interior.
I think you will agree with me it is unique in its kind!!
The restaurant is famous for its "Fundues Bourguignonnes". We looked at each other. Shall we take something else? We decided not to do that and we ordered the fundue menu.
As a starter, we got a plate of raw vegetables.
And, of course, we got wine, water, and bread.
After the starter, the fondue pot was put on the table with the meat, the sauces, and the delicious potatoes, "Pommes de Terre Paysannes".
The meat is so delicious, soft and tasty with a crispy crust because it is baked in the oil.
After the main course, the fun was not over yet because we got cheese and a dessert.
I know they make delicious creme brulee here and, of course, I was not disappointed. It was delicious.
At 10.30pm we left. I took another picture of the outside. It was, of course, completely dark now.
We had a wonderful evening.
Right now the sun is shining and I long to go outside to work in the garden. Because we leave on Sunday I have to take care of the garden and the house as much as I can.
I wish you all a nice day,
