We booked La Petite Adresse after I read excellent reviews about this restaurant, as well as walking past it to see if it was as cute as it looked in photos. It is as cute; it's small and full of rustic charm, and mainly frequented by locals - always a good sign.
The menu is limited, but this made it easier for us, as the entree is salad and the best country style no frills Foie Gras, plus a crunchy baguette served on a timber 'stool' - we loved this course. The mains we chose were delicious, but for me, too rich - I would not choose such a creamy dish next time, but this is just me. The owner presented us with the absolute best tasting, small (thank goodness as we were both quite full!) Creme Brulees - on the house. We have never tasted such delicious Creme Brulee before.
This is a restaurant that you need to get to by 7.30pm preferably or book ahead as we did, as the tables filled fast, even on a Tuesday night.

A new experience for me was morbiflette. A cheese, sausage and lots of potato fish

The first course, a terrine, arrived in a big bowl where you take what you want. Full baguette.

Followed by a delicious petit creme brûlée.

La Petite Adresse can not be more French and reminded me how restaurants used to be in the country side.
It is small, very French. The owner will welcome you, and if you arent French you may think you aren't welcome.. but you are. The menu is simple! An entry (usually terrine) and an half local dishes to choose from. The terrine comes in a big ball and you eat as much as you want. A full bread will be given and cut it yourself. Everything was very nice and well served. A fruit dish is offered. All this with a great music.
The price overall is very cheap.
Definitely the detour.

The place is like a typical bistro out of the 50`s with the accompanying music in the background from this era. The meals are simple but good from the region. The patron is an typical french original with lots of dry humour.
