A Delicious Lunch in Gavray

Published on January 9, 2019 by Chris Robinson

For many people one of the highlights of a holiday is trying different food and drink. Whether that's in a supermarket, at a local market or in a restaurant, it's great fun. France is very passionate about food with local specialities being a particular favourite.

Restaurants usually offer à la carte but set menus are very popular. They're called 'formules' and a lunchtime set menu is 'une formule de midi'. They're also generally very good value for money.

I tried out Chez Cedric in Gavray a little while ago and wasn't disappointed. It's on rue de la Poterie just off the main street. The new owners took over in January 2018 as previously it was a restaurant known as l'Épicerie. It's open at lunchtimes from Monday to Saturday inclusive and is also open on a Friday evening.

I visited on a Saturday lunchtime and opted for 3 courses for 12,50€. You can choose just a main course, starter/main or main/dessert. There's a children's menu and à la carte.

There were two or three choices for each course. My starter was a terrine - a coarse meat paté served with salad and a basket of bread. I selected the beef casserole for my main course. The meat was beautifully tender and was served in a rich sauce alongside chips and salad. For dessert I treated myself to a salted caramel cake with vanilla ice-cream.

For a good value lunch, this really was excellent. I'll definitely go back.

Meet The Author
Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
