We ate supper outside on a glorious evening with four friends. We chose the tasting menu with wine pairing - three Lautrec & one Muscadelle with extra course accommodated without question (both coming in at around £90 each). In total we potentially had eight " courses" if the complimentary canapes, amusee bouche, pre-dessert & petit fours were counted - but we were too full for the cheese.

Beautiful presented canapés accompanied the chateau's own organic fizzy white wine to start. All the paired wines were a decent sized glass, organic and locally produced...and delicious.

The paella inspired course was a delightful deconstructed paella with squid, rabbit, mussels peppers and crispy saffron rice "crips". It was very tasty. The accompanying local red Broucal wine was a lovely discovery. My free range chicken with seared apricots which followed was delicious. The rack of piglet which was served with red radish & cherry puree was apparently very good.

The chocolate and cherry dessert was a work of art almost too good to eat - but not that good !

Highly recommend - but try & take a taxi ; I drew the short straw & had to drive so did not fully appreciate the wines.

We dined at Chateau de Salettes on a Thursday evening in May on the recommendation of our hosts at Mas des Vignes. The food (the Lautrec four courses) and service were excellent, with two stand-outs - the starter (foie gras marbled with chocolate and accented with mango purée) and dessert (with its passionfruit cream centre). The fish course and lamb both balanced with green vegetables were very good (although one of our three lamb dishes was a little fatty for my taste). The amusee bouche, pre dessert taster and petits fours with coffee were delightful additions. Gaillac wines are new for us, and we found Salettes' own sparkling as a starter and the 2008 red were excellent accompaniments to the meal. The restaurant was relatively quiet the night we dined there but the food spacing the right balance and the staff welcoming and efficient. Salettes compared more than favourably with similar restaurants we have eaten in in Australia and Europe, and we thought very reasonably priced for the quality.

This was our second lunch at Chateau des Salettes, the first one being in May of 2014.
Both luncheons were superb.

The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was impeccable. The wine list had many reasonably priced wines in addition to the heavy hitters.

We will return to the Chateau anytime we are in the area.

The food could be wonderful here. Inventive and rich flavours. But the service is so abysmally slow it ruins the entire evening. Even with a kids menu they made the children wait nearly two hours for their main course. For the money it is embarrassing and not to be repeated.
