I was privileged to celebrate my birthday at Auberge du Pommier which is one of the many superb restaurants under the umbrella of Oliver Bonacini. The restaurant specializes in French cuisine which is served with perfection in a tranquil, calm and exquisite cottage ambiance.
The menu is seasonal and it’s worth every penny to try out this restaurant at least twice a year to enjoy both their Summerlicious and Winterlicious offerings.
We enjoyed our meal on the terrace which had the perfect amount of shade with beautiful floral arrangements, rustic floors and a pleasing combination of white and lemon decor.
I must make a special mention on the superior service this restaurant offers. With just a mention of a nut allergy, the staff were exceptionally attendant. Our server meticulously explained each item we chose off the menu, gave his honest suggestions depending on our personal tastes, was extremely knowledgeable of the huge wine selection and yet, was not over bearing at all.
We definitely have Auberge du Pommier on our list of top favourites.
