If you’re ever in Lourdes, or passing-by, go to Le Magret restaurant for a special meal.
Mother, sister, cousin & I had a stupendous evening there - a 3.5 hour dinner. I ate prawns, lamb, cheese, deserts. We drank Cotes de Saint-Mont 2000. It was one of the best restaurant meals ever for each of us. Total cost including tip of €30 = €238. The wine was worth much more than €45. The meal was not cheap. But…
The chef was Jean Francois Rabat.
The service was "emotionally intelligent" - perhaps in the top three I’ve ever had anywhere. I took snaps of every plate. I’ll add them to this blogpost later.
The telephone number of Le Magret is 05.62.94.20.55.
Mother said she’d pay next time. After the spirituality, religious practices, ordinary food, and intensity of the week - that meal was a fairly perfect counter-balancing.
In the interests of getting on with life now, I’ll prevent myself from launching into a detailed description of the meal & how we were treated. But I’m tempted to write my first review on TripAdvisor.
In case the wonderful couple who served us read this, I’d like to thank you again for an extraordinary evening.
