La Vigne Haute

We have now seen and done pretty much everything in the Lot Valley. All that is left to do is to eat at the amazing restaurants in this area. Seeing as these are our final few days in Martignac, we have decided to go out for lunch every day.

We had been given several recommendations for 'La Vigne Haute' in the village of Castelfranc. Tuesday found us anxiously waiting for the restaurant's doors to open at noon.




We were seated in a charming room of six tables. Not surprisingly, we were the first ones there. I went for a little walkabout as there was a very sweet garden at the side of the building.







As always in this country, lunch was delicious. Simple food, made with the freshest ingredients, prepared with care.




We started with a souffle foie gras. The best souffle I've eaten in my life.







Followed by 'Magret de Canard Avec Sauce L'Orange'. The chef grilled the duck breast right in the fireplace of the dining room!




As you can see, we devoured the food.




Dessert was good old chocolate cake and ice cream, French style.

Another amazing meal in France. Thank you La Vigne Haute!
