In Château-Thébaud there is a farmhouse in the heart of a vineyard where you err between down-home common sense, poetry and appetite, thanks to a generous, pretention-free cuisine, rooted in the local terroir (land). On the menu, you’ll find a familial atmosphere, the joys of eating, human kindness and even kinder prices. Regulars come back for the terrine of homemade duck foie gras mi-cuit and carrot chutney, rabbit en cocotte (in an individual cast-iron pot), duck leg à l’andouille and seasonal vegetables. Three prix-fixe menus: tiny, medium, big hunger. Reserve on weekends.
Quenelle of egg mimosa and house smoked salmon, strips of Vendée cured ham, cream of radish.
Simmered curry veal en cocotte and seasonal vegetables.
Homemade profiteroles, chocolate sauce.
