The insane cyclists decided to ride up the mountain so a couple of us were left to our own devices waiting for them. We’d been pointed to La Cremaillere the day before so thought we’d give it a try.
NOTE: Google Maps has the restaurant in the wrong location. It is on Route d’Huez.
La Cremaillere offers excellent French Cuisine, with some Italian dishes thrown in for good measure, from a hand written blackboard menu of the fare of the day. There are both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes on offer.
I ended up having lunch here twice with 7 of us having an enjoyable late lunch a couple of days later.
Old favourite dishes such as
- French onion soup
- Chicken skewers
- Duck breast
- Penne with olive oil
were on the menu. Along with Pana Cotta and Cafe Gourmand for dessert.
All washed down with the obligatory half litre of house red wine.
