Restaurant Review from South France Holiday Villas

Restaurant Review for Auberge de la Croisade, Cruzy, Herault, Languedoc-Rousillon, FRANCE by the owners of the beautiful villa with a pool just a two minute walk from the restaurant (CROS101 –
Another “high end” restaurant worth mentioning is the “Table de Roueire” which is between Quarante and Capestang.  Superb terrace overlooking f…ields towards Creissan, which is lovely for summer lunches. If lobster is your fancy then you can make your own live selection from the tank inside the restaurant.
Very clever use of micro herbs, and a good range of both formula and a la carte menus utilising plenty of locally sourced ingredients.  Wine list to suit all tastes and budgets.  Quite formal service but also very friendly, if a little more restrained than Bruno at “Auberge de La Croisade”! In our experience, always welcoming to children, with a nice Menu Enfants to match – not at all “stuck up” in this respect.
No reason at all why it shouldn’t be busy at every service, but has always been quiet when we’ve dined there.  Not that we have a problem creating our own atmosphere! Check out the restaurant here:

Top Tips for Booking Holiday Villas in the South of France:

If you’re looking for Holiday lets with pools to rent in Languedoc, south of France – then here are some hints and tips you might find useful:

1. It can be very hot here sometimes, even at night. Not all properties have fans but they can be hired from us beforehand if required. Please check with us whether a property has fans or not. It may not be possible to deliver fans to you during your stay due to stock levels so please book early.

2. For 2 week bookings, mid stay linen change is generally NOT included but can be requested at an extra cost.

3. Aircon, phone lines and mobile signal are not always available at properties, please check details or ask us to confirm.
4. If hiring a car, please note that a credit card is ESSENTIAL, no other form of payment is accepted, not even cash. Please also check that the hire car desk will be open when you arrive at your destination airport.
5. If travelling to the area on a Saturday in peak season (mid July to mid August), be prepared for heavy traffic and queues on the motorway and other main routes.

6. Late arrival at your holiday accommodation, i.e. after 9pm, can be arranged but only by prior agreement.

7. If size matters to you, then please ask for approximate dimensions of your holiday accommodation. Some 2 bedroom properties may only be around 50m2 or less.

8. Communal swimming pools in France mostly do not allow shorts or bermudas to be worn in the pool. Only swimming trunks are permitted so please remember to bring these with you.

South France Holiday Villa and Restaurant Review

Restaurant Review for Auberge de la Croisade, Cruzy, Herault, Languedoc-Rousillon, FRANCE by the owners of the beautiful villa with a pool just a two minute walk from the restaurant:
We have eaten there many times over the last few years and have always enjoyed it.  There are a number of set menus in addition to the A La Carte section.  The wine list is extensive and includes some very reasonably… priced good quality wines from the immediate area.
We have found service to be of a high standard, and Bruno, the co-owner / maitre d’ is a top quality act, very entertaining, and fluent in English and German, as well as French.  Booking is advisable, especially in the high season, but once you have a table, there is no hurry to vacate it.  Bruno enjoys customers who enjoy their food…and wine.  The Auberge offers a very good value leisurely lunch menu, and the setting is top class, with the added bonus of a designated driver not being required.
 Bruno and the co-owner / chef, Bruno (it seems Bruno is a popular name in the area) have been in business at the Auberge for over seventeen years, so they must be doing something right!  The building was previously a dwelling for canal workers, and was actually lived in by “Les Rossignols” who owned our house until they fell victim to their own wine back in 1974, when it was contaminated by pesticide.  Our house was originally built as a dwelling in the 1880’s but was used as a “cave” from the mid-1920’s until the sad demise of the Rossignols.
Too much information,perhaps, but we can vouch that the wine is now fine as well as plentiful.
