“Nice French dinner”

Hotel Restaurant La Gravette
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: USD 11 - USD 27

Reviewed 16 August 2015 via mobile

The overall quality of the 5 course dinner was good, except one of the starters which was just a pile of cold sour vegetables to us (perhaps just not our kind of taste). We would describe the food as typical French but not very delicate. The restaurant was nicely old fashioned decorated which fitted the style of the menu. All in all a nice experience with a good price-quality ratio (23 euros for 5 courses including soup) but nothing special.

Whilst on holiday with friends and children our holiday hosts suggested a visit to this restaurant. The terrace was busy so one of the owners apologised and seated us inside. This is a very quirky place with a most eclectic decor ranging from Thai dolls, a stuffed duck to nick-knacks from around the world so plenty to talk about. There is a 15 euros set men which included fresh soup as an entree then a three course meal. Wine is palatable and a reasonable choice. The two owners are from Paris but have been running the place for a long time now. They are cheery and most accommodating to every request. Food arrived slowly but it was buzy and it was no problem. The mussels were tasty and to be recommended. The highlight of the meal was the amazing sorbet. Cassis and apricot were on offer and gave most intense flavours. Do ask for them to be served without the squirty cream though!! 8 of us dined here and had a pleasant night.

It was time for Sunday lunch so we came off the D703 into St Cyprien but couldn't find anywhere open. Just off the main street we finally found "La Gravette" seemingly frequented by the locals which was a good recommendation. However, there did not seem to be any staff in attendance except a man in the kitchen who came to our rescue, seated us, took our order and brought our aperitif. What was to follow was a feast! We had a delicious vegetable soup, prawn salad (and it was large) with lettuce, carrot, potato, cucumber all cut up in a mayonnaise sauce and decorated with half an orange. We then had Monkfish, saute potatoes with a lettuce decoration and finally Rum Baba with cream + coffee. This little restaurant deserves a five star rating for the helpfulness of the two waiters but most importantly for their food, it was excellent. It also happened to be very reasonably priced.
