Restaurant Review - Auberge des Gorges de Madale

Well off the beaten track, tucked away in the woods of a hamlet called Sévirac near Colombieres sur Orb, this lovely restaurant has a comfortable dining room and a terrace with great views. It is not easy to find, but as it is frequently very busy, this is perhaps an advantage otherwise it would be booked out for months in advance!

The concept is simple: there is only one menu including drinks for a fixed price.

They offer a set menu that changes every fortnight for a fixed price of 30€. This includes aperitif, canapés, four courses (starter, fish course, main course, and dessert), a bottle each of red and white wine, water, tea/coffee and petit fours. The current menu can be found on their website. At the moment (until 05/07/2015) they are tempting you with the following:

Tomate marinée à la feuille de verveine fraîche
Mozzarella di Buffala, gaspacho
Sorbet betterave / rhubarbe
Cornetto garni de caviar d'aubergine aux olives sur un mille-feuille de courgette et saumon fumé
Filet mignon de cochon rôti au barbecue / curry rouge
Purée de pomme de terre à l'amande amère
Comme une île flottante
Griotte / Framboise / Fromage blanc
Crème glacée chocolat blanc goutte d'estragon
Café / mignardises

Auberge des Gorges de Madale

You are offered a warm welcome and the promise of a lovely meal in the pleasant ambiance of the restaurant or the terrace in the summer. With just 35 covers you are assured of excellent and attentive service. The menu changes with the seasons and only fresh produce is used from the region. Daniel likes to revisit classic dishes and create his own - adding that little ingredient or texture that sets it apart. The presentation of each place is a feast for the eyes.

Reviews frequently state “I have nothing but praise for this restaurant”. Also that it is very good value for money and a place you must definitely try if you are in the area.

It is open from Wednesday lunchtime and evenings through to Sunday lunchtime.

They don’t take credit cards though, so come with your cheque book or cash!
