The deal? Give Nathalie a ring a few days before and tell her about what kind of food your craving to get her creative juices flowing! Then all that’s left to do is grab a seat on the terrace, a mere 100 meters from the Isère River, or around the big communal table (during the winter), for a taste of the menu made entirely with organic ingredients. Served à la carte the evening we went: a light sun-dried tomato crème brûlée with a Parmesan tuile and basil chips; osso-buco with a delicious bone marrow jus, plus roasted zucchini and sweet potatoes; before a trilogy of miniature desserts that were less spectacular, including a chocolate-cherry muffin (a little hard), whole red currants, Chartreuse granita and chocolate cake. And to quench your thirst for natural wines? An excellent Gamay rosé, Fai Virar, from the Mas de L’Escarida in the Ardèche (€7 a glass) and a pleasant Pouilly-Loché from Marcel Couturier (€9 a glass). Set menu options €17-22 (lunch), €23-28 (dinner). // O.J.
