Aux Plaisirs des Halles

Nîmes had a strange, quiet feel to it today. I presumed it was all connected with the Tour de France that stops there on Friday. There were road signs everywhere advising you that the centre would be closed to traffic. It appeared to me that everyone was taking them a bit too literally and had abandoned the town early.

With time to kill before my doctor's appointment, we decided to have lunch and settled for Aux Plaisirs des Halles, 4 rue Littré, 0466 360102. We had eaten there several times before always at lunchtime and had liked it, but the last time we ate there it was in the evening with friends and were frankly disappointed. We decided to give it another try. Thank goodness we did. The food was excellent, Jan having the 21 euros menu and me the 27 euros. The food was well cooked and well presented and the service was a little stiff but efficient. Recommended.
