BON VENT, SIERRA DE BERNIA 969659554
Rustic lunch in the mountains
Bon Vent is located at km11.5 on the CV-749 which is the road that climbs from Jalon towards the spectacular Sierra Bernia mountain range. The restaurant has only recently reopened after being closed for two years.
Bon Vent is a typical rural Spanish restaurant with a spacious interior and an exterior dining/drinking area with wonderful views of Sierra Bernia. There is plenty of parking space and during fine weather the restaurant attracts groups of walkers. It was a chilly December day when we visited and only one other table was occupied, however the dining area was kept surprisingly warm by a wood-burning stove and an open fire in the kitchen.
The price of the menu is dependent on the main course chosen, and consists of tapas, a main course, dessert and a half bottle of wine.
We chose the substantial lamb chops (€20) and grilled rabbit and garlic (€18) which would benefited from the rabbit being cooked in the garlic rather than alongside it.
The improving Marnes wine from the Jalon cooperative accompanied our meal.
Our honest rustic lunch in a beautiful setting, high in the mountains cost €23.66 p.p. including coffee and brandy.
