When I went to La Gourmandise on Saturday for lunch, I chose a cured salmon salad instead of a gallette, which is what I normally choose when I go there. It was delicious, with just the right amount of vinaigrette to add teat extra flavour.

Had the salmon and avocado Gillette. Very rich but very yum. The brushetta was nice as an entree and the service good. Will be back

This is a regular destination when wanting a happy relaxing meal. With excellent food and pleasant helpful staff. It caters for all types and is not just crepes and snails. The steak is always good as is there fish and lamb. Highly recommended
