We had lunch at the restaurant in the Le Vieux Logis Relais & Chateaux Hotel in the town in Tremolat. It was one of those magic moments from the minute we entered and were seated under the shade of the trees overlooking the garden. The waiter asked if there was anything that we did not eat and we said no. We asked him what were we going to eat and he said that he did not know because the kitchen did not tell him.
They called the food Tapas (small plates). Each course was special but the two main courses were exceptional.
After lunch I smoked a cigar in the garden. They even had a cigar room if you wanted to smoke inside. The service staff anticipated your every wish and did it all with a smile.
There is a 36 euro menu for lunch and it was so good the first time that we went back a second time and there was a lot of debate on which meal was better. It was the best food on the trip and some of the best that I have in France. The wine list is very good and the setting and service could not have been better.
