Spending the weekend in Cannes to attend a wedding in Valbonne ! Decided to book a table @ L'Amandier for dinner on the beautiful roof terrace with spectacular views of Mougins & the countryside beyond!
The restaurant is at the beginning of the village with the Hubac car park handy for parking below!
The restaurant offers various different prixe fixe menus, starting at 32 euros & 45 euros for a 3 course menu, going up to 55 euros for La Cuisine selon Roger Vergé, a 6 course gastronomic menu!
We went for the à la carte menu, starting with Lobster Tortellini, Noilly-Prat melted leeks, creamy Bisque & star anise foam, melt in the mouth little parcels of sweet lobster deliciousness, easily big enough for a main course! Other starters included Parma cheese gnocchi cooked in broth, also very tasty!
Main courses enjoyed included John Dory fillet, lemon & chive juice, artichoke, confit tomatoes, caper. A delectable fragrantly flavoured dish cooked in a light juice which enhanced the delicate fish!
The codfish served with zucchini risotto, butter with pepper juice was also light erred with a fragrant sauce & creamy risotto!
The filet of lamb stuffed with parsley & garlic was also a success, rich in flavour & cooked to perfection!
All washed down with a a crisp Côte de Provence rosé!
We couldn't resist trying a dessert so we chose the Black Forest L'Amandier Style, a contemporary take on the Black Forest gateau, with all its best attributes! Rich dark chocolate, juicy black cherries & light cream....delicious!
Highly recommend a visit to this Mougins jewel for a truly French experience!
