Last week I broke a promise I made to myself – to never take photos in restaurants. I simply can't stand it when people start snapping away as soon as their plates are being served – can't you just eat your food and drink your wine and be happy and civilized?
I have one excuse though – it was early and we were the only customers and I didn't take photos of the food (which was delicious) but of the beautifully painted walls of this 16th century house.
And just in case you want to know where this was: no it is not in Provence! We went on a little vacation to see the castles (well, some of them) of the Loire Valley and this is the restaurant “Au Rendez-Vous des Pêcheurs” in Blois. Lovely place, lovely food, charming service – if in Blois do go there!
