A couple of weeks back we celebrated with lunch in the sun on the Ile de Ré . After clearing our plates we realised you really could say “dinner is behind you!” Those tanks are full of the finest seafood. I had a plate full of this lot…
A plate of palourdes gently cooked with garlic and herbs, served with lovely sauteed potatoes and all washed down with a glass of rose. What more could you want on a sunny day? Oysters? There were plenty of those as well. Harvested from the nearby oyster beds.
It was a great lunch just a few minutes cycle from our house in St Martin de Ré . I’m sure we’ll be going back again soon.
You can find Sophie and Jacky Sury’s Auberge de la Mer just outside St Martin de Ré on the cycle route towards La Courade. As a bonus you usually get to see the island’s rasta donkeys on the way! To see more of our house click on the link below.
