With its ideal location between the station and Saint- Priest town centre, the cuisine in this simply named establishment receives the finest attention. Frédéric Virte has the advantage of being close by to producers and artisans and pays particular attention to the freshness of his ingredients. His menu is updated every three weeks in order to stay in line with seasonal produce. The chef happily lives by the mantra of ‘there is only really one true type of cooking – good cooking’. This simple conviction is apparent in his creative, traditional dishes. The vegetables and different types of mushroom are able to reveal all their texture and flavour and delightfully complement the fish and meat, as illustrated by the rabbit salad, pork cheek medallions and scorpion fish fillet. In addition, the dessert menu is as equally well considered as the wine list and the staff are welcoming and lively. ‘Le Restaurant’ is proving to be a sure bet.
