Had lunch at Le Bontemps while touring the left bank area. The place was suggested by my guide Frederic and I'm more than grateful to him for choosing this excellent bristo cafe for lunch... in fact he rated it much better than a lot of famous cafe's and lunch spots in the neighbourhood of the left bank and boy was I more than satisfied with his choice.
The place is open only for lunch and it's run by a couple. The chef who's the owner is the sole cook while his wife doubles up as the steward and help as well as cashier. The place is pretty small and it's was over crowded for lunch with a small wait time for larger groups.
While they do have a la carte menu we choose the 3 course meal.they do have options as add on for the 3 course meal it's definitely the most value for money meal in the Beychevelle region.
The 3 of us on the table had 3 different mains but all of us were unanimous that it was indeed a very tasty meal. They do have a limited wine list too.
In fact you can bump into many wine owners, wine makers and other chateau staff dining at the restaurant
Rush before the undiscovered gem becomes the most sought after cafe in the area.
