We were looking for another restaurant on the same street (which, in the event, was closed) when we stumbled upon this small unadorned place, invited in by its cosy, covered side terrace and sparse tables. Decor was simple but tasteful and throughout our lunch, we noticed that the place was being frequented by lots of locals, mainly in the indoors part, on this hot midday. We both had the plat du jour (16 euro) which comprised a main plus salad and a desert. The main was tagliatelle with chorizo and cream sauce but instead of parmesan, it was covered with thinly-sliced manchego. Light and tasty it was washed down with a bottle of white Cotes du Rhone (19 euro) - perfect for a hot summer's day. But the best part was the desert - home-made chocolate and hazelnut tartallette. Perfect pastry with a smooth chocolate ganache topped with toasted hazlenuts. It's certainly one of the best chocolate tarts I've ever had. I enquired of the helpful staff as to its provenance as it was so good and it turns out it really was home made; one of the staff is also a pastry chef and has a patisserie round the corner! Great value for lunch, friendly, quick and efficient service. All told, the bill came to 55 euro including coffee, two-course and wine. Not to be missed!
