Saveurs de Provence Restaurant- Saint Rémy de Provence
After a long wonderful day of sightseeing we chose this restaurant mostly because it was the first one we came to. We did not have a recommendation. We were not disappointed!
My starter was served on a slate plate and not only was it pretty but it was delicious.
We were asked if we wanted water with or without gas. They serve sparkling water in very nice gourmet bottles. By this time we had learned you could ask for tap water and they brought it in the cute little green pitcher.
This lady's smile lit up the room and was contagious. My husband and I both noticed the mood she set for the entire restaurant.
My main course was lamb with morels and it could not have been better.
Every course was like an artist's painting with lovely embellishments. I think the words mango and chocolate sauce was enough for me to make this choice. My husband ordered the cheese plate for dessert.
This was our waiter who spoke English which helped us so much. Our meal was such a pleasant experience. The tables were close together because it was rather small. I enjoyed watching people and wished I could know more about them. My husband was so moved by the pleasant lady we couldn't help but notice. He had an app on his Iphone that translated english into french. Before I knew it he typed something in and as the lady with the infectious smile passed and after asking her if she spoke english and she said she didn't he showed her what he had written on his phone. He wrote, Thank you for your beautiful smile! When she read it she just beamed and was so appreciative. It was such a pleasant exchange for us because we felt so welcome in such a cordial atmosphere. I think she may have been the owner but I will never know.
Here is the little green pitcher that traveled from France to my kitchen in Alabama. When I look at it I smile and remember St Rémy. I wonder what the lady's name was and when her baby is due and what our waiter's name was too. I love how they say, VOILA! If anyone travels to St. Rémy de Provence please eat at the Saveurs de Provence Restaurant!
"Provence....One trip is not enough!"
Voila! A gift to you from FRANCE!
