We do enjoy dinner at the Hotel Le France. It's an atmospheric setting, with quirky pieces of art and paint effects. The food is modern, good combinations and well executed and presented.
A tiny pea soup with cream and parmesan shavings provided the amuse geule. We went with friends Ray and Jill. Starters included foie gras, with an assortment of fresh, seasoned vegetables; seared tuna on garlic toasts; deep-fried Provencale vegetables with Japanese-style dipping sauce. All perfectly cooked and laid out, with ample portions.
Mains included rabbit wrapped in prosciutto with seasonal vegebatables, magret de canard with cherries and sea bream. All well prepared and presented with good sauces. The pudding highlight was a delicately roast dish of strawberries.
The Hotel le France is a friendly family run restaurant in an ideal location in the midst of Fayence. In the summer, it's great to sit on the balcony, eat and drink and watch the world go by. The food is always well-cooked and presented, with interesting dishes which combine modern and classical French styles.
We are fans!
