During our recent stay at the Couvent we sampled the ‘Table d’Hôte’ one evening and we weren’t disappointed. For 29 Euros a head we were served a delicious meal, dining al fresco in the Couvent’s pretty garden with its beautiful backdrop of fields and hills.
Our starter of small Pézenas pâtés with pink peppercorns (see image above) was followed by chicken with fresh local vegetables and a dessert of crème brulé with raspberries; all beautifully presented. Wines started at about 15 Euros a bottle. We opted for the Rosé ‘Sylva Plana’ at 25 Euros which complemented the food perfectly.
The whole occasion on a warm summer evening was very special and relaxed and even nicer knowing we didn’t have to think about driving or taxis afterwards.
The ‘Table d’Hôte’ is available each evening at the Couvent but you must book in advance. On cooler evenings dinner is served in the conservatory or around the Couvent’s large oak dining table. The menu changes daily but use is always made of fresh local produce. Typical dishes include slow cooked lamb, saddle of rabbit or fig stuffed duckling to name but a few.
