was still August but you would be forgiven for thinking it was later in the
year, not that the weather was bad, far from it it was a crystal clear day with
blue skies and warm temperatures, but everywhere was deserted. Ok it was the
last few days of August and I had come to Notre-dame-de-Monts to review the
water tower at Kulmino and take the photos which are much better this time of
year with the more mellow light. I had come alone as Tate our gastronomic critic
has mobility difficulties and I was not sure if he would be able to get to the
top of the tower.
Having had a good look from the 60 meter high tower it was
time for something to eat so I went to Notre Dame de Monts, but found many of
the restaurants had already closed for the season. I eventually arrived at the
beach front where there were two restaurants and choose the Bristot
This restaurant is on the sands and obviously only there for the
summer, but it has both inside and outside dining. There is no decor to mention
but it does have exceptional views of the beach and sea with view that take in
the offshore island of Ile d'Yeu.
It was quite busy with most of the
clientele seemingly local as they had a great rapport with the staff. The menu
was reasonably extensive though there was no formula menu available, but that
was not a problem as I had decided on only having salad.
The salad i choose
was the salade pays ouest and consisted of a base of two kinds of lettuce,
cucumber, tomato, gresiers, slices of duck breast, eggs and crotons with a tasty
dressing. It was very pleasant and with the views all round made for an
enjoyable lunch break.
The service was efficient and at a cost of 11 Euros
not bad for a sea front restaurant.
