L’Abri Des Pins – Brossac
Just 5 minutes away is L’Abri Des Pins, a great little restaurant if you are in the market for a nice French lunch. There is no menu (although you do occasionally get offered a choice of main course) so you get what you are given!
L’Abri is run by husband and wife, he is in the kitchen, she runs front of house and waits tables. As there is no menu and no cooking to order your food arrives promptly, almost too promptly for my liking as I enjoy eating there and just being there.
The format is; starter, main course, cheese, dessert, coffee, water & wine. Each couple gets a bottle to share between two on the wine. This comes in at a reasonable €12.50 per person.
You used to sit on bench seats at long trestle tables with everyone else eating there, however they have changed that to a standard seating arrangement. This is an easy going restaurant with no airs and graces, however it is a great eating experience.
The food is traditional French style, which is hard to define in any other way! It is tasty and good for you! You must try this restaurant during your stay you will not be disappointed. No need to book and very easy to find.
