Le Puy à Vins - Bienvenue Romain, Marie et David

With items on the menu such as : Cuisse de canard confit maison, pommes de terre sautées, ail et persil, Parmentier de boeuf avec chips de céleri, ou Financier vanille, cuit minute, sauce chocolate et glace noix, one would be forgiven for thinking we were dining in a swanky Parisian bistro. So how lucky we are to welcome chef David Beaufreton to our local village of Le Puy Notre Dame.

Under the new ownership of Romain and Marie Amblard Le Puy à Vins has had a facelift, created a menu to die for (lunch and dinner) and revamped the wine list to include many of our local favourite producers. 

An amazing 'Menu de Jour' at lunchtime from 13 euros Entrée/Plat or Plat/Dessert or 16 euros for the whole shabang features imaginative dishes such as Lamb Tagine with couscous.

Or how about a Tartine Fromage for starters...

....and a delcious Tarte de Banane for dessert

An even more sophisticated evening menu is offered with à la carte dining and the restaurant is open lunchtime and dinner except for Sunday when it is closed so that David and his team can have a well earned rest.

Wines feature many of the local Le Puy Notre Dame producers including many of our friends from Chateau de Fosse Seche, Les Noades, Melaric, Domaine de la Paleine and L'Echantoir to name but a few. You'll be sure to find something to suit your taste either by the glass or bottle.

David brings a kitchen full of new flavours to Le Puy having trained at The Box Tree in Ilkley and working as a chef in Rabat and Marrakech. We keep having to go back every week to see what is new on the menu!

Le Puy à Vins is only 5 minutes from La Grande Maison by car and a great location to walk to across the vineyards during the summer months. Cheese plates and charcuterie are also available with a glass of wine if you don't have time for the whole menu - but I am sure you will!
