Entrechaux is overlooked by the ruins of its feudal castle perched at the top of the village. Today Entrechaux is a peaceful village whose main activity is agriculture growing cherries, melons, apricots and grapes. There are several restaurants including Saint Hubert Restaurant located in the village.
Saint Hubert has been operated by four generations of the same family since 1929. In addition to the terrace, there are two dining rooms which are used during the winter and inclement weather. I guess sprinkles don't qualify as inclement weather at Saint Hubert Restaurant.
We chose a bottle of 2007 Château Saint Estève d'Uchaux Côtes du Rhône for 10,00 Euros to accompany our meal.
Seated under the thick canopy of wisteria, we could hear the rain falling but didn't feel any drops. While we looked over the menu, we enjoyed the refreshing amuse bouche of tomato gazpacho with basil cream.
For my entrée - starter I chose Girolles Persillées - sauteed mushrooms with onions, garlic and parsley.
Shirley chose Crumble de Fromage de Chèvre a la Tapenade Verte - a delicious starter with eggplant and tomatoes topped with goat cheese and bread crumbs.
It was accompanied by a green salad with a creamy vinaigrette.
For her main course, Shirley chose Filet de Saumon en Habit Craquant - fillet of salmon baked in phyllo dough.
I chose Marmite de Coquilles St Jacques en Sauce Safranée - scallops in a tasty creamy saffron sauce.
Both main courses were accompanied by Parmesan risotto and carrot purée.
Before desserts, we enjoyed a cheese plate with Reblochon, Roquefort, chèvre, and Tomme de Savoie. For dessert, we chose an assortment of ice creams and sorbets accompanied by green grapes
and chocolate soufflé with a red berry sauce.
Reservations are definitely recommended. A couple arrived without reservations at the same time we did and were turned away with "nous sommes complet" - we're full despite the fact that several tables did not have diners.
We will definitely return sprinkles or not! The food was very good and moderately priced at 26,50 and 38,00 Euros for our four courses. Bonne journée et a bientôt.
