First of all a very big thank you to the Club de l’Amitié of Daglanaise for the organisation of the meal at Le Gabarrier Restaurant. It was truly one of the nicest meals that I have ever tasted in South West France where the standard is so high to begin with. In such friendly company, what more could you wish for.
Le Gabarrier Restaurant is to be found in Allas-les-Mines behind the Musee, with wonderful views overlooking the Dordogne river.
Le Gabarrier Restaurant.
The meal began with a cocktail made with raspberry, cranberry’s and rum, it was delicious. Then we were served the Chefs soup, a starter followed.
This is Paul’s starter, foie gras creme brulee with tomato and basil sorbet.
As a vegetarian I particularly loved the sorbet made with tomato and basil, fresh goats cheese on granary bread with a side salad. One of my favorites and a meal all by itself.
A choice of red, white or Rose wine was served with the main course.
Just look at the enjoyment on his face while eating the main course of lamb in honey glaze.
I am happy, sitting besides the Maire, glass in hand and eating a succulent piece of grilled salmon, with a beetroot mash and creamed carrots.
A few of our fellow Daglanaise, cheers and bon appetite.
It is great to get together and catch up with all of the local news.
Paul and I were so full but we could not resist the dessert. Which was followed by coffee and chocolates.
We will diet for the rest of the week… I think and we will certainly go to Le Gabarrier again, the service, the food, wine etc. where all excellent.
