Axuria in the 15th: "John, This is the Best Run of Places Ever."

The house started us off with some sliced Iberico ham, puffy bread sticks and a fine veloute of green asparagus which was perfect for the chilly rainy afternoon.

M. had the BBQ of gambas with quinoa, Mme. the pressed leeks and microtomed scallops and I the escargots with the requisite amout of garlic and butter and a new twist - chopped nuts - all quite tasty.

Madame then had a nice piece of daurade, Monsieur the tete de veau fashioned as a bric and I a perfectly cooked 1/2 cote de boeuf - all with an incredible amount of both spring veggies and potatoes.

For desserts they had a 3 sorbets (mango, orange citron and whatever) and a moelleux of caramel while I was content with the rest of the Chateau Darzac.

With OK bread, no coffee nor bottled water and two of the Bordeaux our bill was 160.70 E, thus 107 E a couple.  And it's open for Sunday lunch folks.
