If you ever celebrate a birthday or anniversary when in Languedoc, my tip is to get yourself pampered at Michelin starred restaurant La Table de Castigno in Assignan. In fact, even if you don’t have something to celebrate, you should still go! Sometimes you just have to treat yourself. This restaurant completely understands how to spoil you with the best local wines and the finest French cuisine, using fresh and local products.

Great taste

Chéri and I went on a beautiful summer evening. We arrived in the sleepy village of Assignan and parked near some kind of barn. Chéri wasn’t too sure about the restaurant until we walked in and he saw the beautiful space decorated with great taste. And they gave us a warm welcome! As we enjoy long, warm summer evenings in the South of France, we sat outside on the lovely terrace. After choosing how many courses we wanted- no menu here- we soon enough got our first amuse bouche. The presentation was so pretty that we almost didn’t dare to eat it. Almost…

Promising start

The first amuse was quickly followed by another one, a delicate soufflé with cheese. A promising start! We weren’t disappointed. The beautiful starter was a salad full of Southern flavours: all kinds of tomatoes mixed with melon and crayfish. Not only a feast for the tastebuds, but a feast for the eyes as well.

Wine pairing

You can opt for wine pairings to go with your courses. The hosts of La Table have great wine expertise and serve only local wines, including some from their own domaine. The pampering continued with beautifully grilled cauliflower and a crumble of foie gras and crab. We also got a perfect piece of meat, veal if I am not mistaken, served with all kinds of creams, textures and colours. What a delight!

Wonderful dessert

No dinner is complete without dessert. Here again, the two chefs – brothers Pieter and Ruben De Maesschalck – worked their magic. To top off our delicious dinner, Chéri and I had a wonderful ice-cream crumble with white chocolate flakes. Completely satisfied, I was already looking forward to our next celebration: my birthday. So in a month time, we will be eating at La Table again. Lucky me!

Info

Parking

We parked our car in the parking lot at Rue Cariera de la Teuliera. From there, the restaurant is a very short walk.
