LES BRETONNES DE MORAIRA, MORAIRA 966492384
Third time lucky?
This was the third visit by our club to this restaurant in Moraira. It originally opened under the name of La Senieta, then in 2014 it became La Serrena and now it is Les Bretonnes de Moraira. Located at 29 Avenida de Madrid, the décor of Les Bretonnes has not changed but the ownership is now in the hands of former staff from the very successful Moraira restaurant, Les Fouges.
We chose from a menu del día priced at €25 +IVA. Like Les Fouges the cuisine and wines are French.
We started with a very meaty pate, rillettes, quiche and a fish soup which was very tasty but a bit on the cool side for some of our group. It was heated up and the mood of our group improved.
The wines selected by our host were a Muscadet, reasonably priced at €9.80, a Sancerre called Brochard at almost double the price (€18.80) and a St Emilion Grand Cru called Chateau Palais Cardinal at €26.40. We also sampled a red Bergerac reasonably priced at €9.80 but the wine list is sadly lacking many wines for less than €20.
Our main courses included steak tartare, entrecote and three fish dishes of salmon, cod and a wonderful seafood selection of langoustines, prawns and scallops.
For dessert we enjoyed selections of ice cream and crème brulée.
The staff were friendly, bubbly and attentive and we rounded off an excellent and enjoyable lunch with coffee and Armagnac (€6). However the price of the wines pushed up the cost of our time with the Bretonne ladies to an expensive €48.44 p.p.
