Sparkling day out...Part II

After our visit to the 'Cave des Producteurs' in Vouvray we headed over to Montlouis-sur-Loire to visit our favourite vintner...but we had planned our trip to fit in lunch first. Pauline and I had eaten at our chosen restaurant,'Le Bas Rocher' on Quai Albert Baillet, before but our friends hadn't. We had actually been checking out the 'Toque et Vins' gourmet restaurant next door which looked inviting but the menu on that particular day wasn't to our taste and to pay €21.00 for lunch it had to be.

We were heading back to the car when we noticed 'Le Bas Rocher' and although it is advertised as a 'creperie' it is more than that.

We had eaten inside on our first visit...

 and remembered the highlight was their 'cafe gourmand'  ('Relais de la Mothe' take note)

This time we sat on the terrace and our friends agreed (thankfully) that it was a good choice. Good food in a good setting with a very pleasant hostess. We had the straightforward 'formule midi' at €11.90 ( 3 choices for each course) but all had the cafe gourmand and coffee, plus wine of course and including the tip it was only €15.00 /head...great value.
