When I first came to La Crique, it really was just a little shack – one of three that sit above a two fabulous sandy coves. How things have changed in the last 15 years!
It’s been a few years since I have eaten here, and to be honest the last time probably doesn’t count as I have been reliably informed that huge ice creams decorated with fruit do not constitute a proper lunch! Anyway, the food has always been good so as soon as I spotted mussels on the menu, I knew we didn’t need to look any further.
We decided to take two different dishes so that we could swap and enjoy double the flavour sensations, so we went for a Moules Marinières with chips (naughty) and a Carpaccio of dorade with a citrus and olive oil dressing and green salad. Both dishes were super tasty and we finally had to admit defeat as we couldn’t finish the huge mountain of mussels between us.
So all in all, fab food and I thought excellent value for money. We had two aperitifs, two main courses, glass of wine and two coffees, and the bill came to 41 euros. No wonder the restaurant was busy, and Franck (the owner) told us that you have to reserve in advance for the evening if you want a cool spot out of the sun. Must bear that in mind…
