TO EAT | RESTAURANT
Being on Instagram, I get my daily dose of inspirational places to go to. Cities, villages, exhibitions, hikes and of course restaurants. Beach restaurant Plage Bonaventure was on my wishlist, and last week I finally succeeded to lure chéri into going with me. And it was paradise: great design, good food and the best view on the Mediterranean Sea!
The bohemian style beach restaurant immediately made us feel at home. It was too hot to order alcohol (it was really hot…); instead we had a fresh and homemade citronnade to start with. Regarding the temperature, we didn’t feel like having a complete meal, so we ordered some fine oysters as a starter, together with some bites. Although I felt I should have ordered the pasta with langoustine when I saw our neighbours dish arriving… It looked amazingly good!
But yeah, the grass is always greener on the other side and in the end we were very happy with our lunch as well. The – what I thought would be – small bites were a full plate of crispy fried “fritto misto d’encornets” (small squids) and a platter with “veggies à tartiner” (spreadable veggies). However, the veggie platter was like a meal in itself, including nachos, bread, hummus, salad and the veggie spreads. Yum!
No restaurant review without dessert, so we forced ourselves to order one ;). We both ordered the “craquant aux deux chocolats”. Have to say that this giant profiterole style dessert was a real treat. It almost made us sink when we were taking a swim in the bright blue sea…
