I took my husband to Les Deux M the other day for his birthday - and what a treat it was !
It came highly recommended and the day we went along for lunch the skies were blue and the sun was shining so we were offered the choice of sitting on the shaded terrace or in the restaurant. We chose outside and an utterly charming waitress attended to our every need with the right balance of serving our drinks and meal without us feeling hurried or feeling that we were waiting too long. The timing was impeccable.
Aperitifs were served while we scanned the menu and although the set lunch sounded delicious (and great value) we were far too tempted by the à la carte (or was it just that I married a Scotsman and I was paying?).
When our dishes arrived the presentation was fantastic and they looked too good to eat. I was amazed how each thing on the plate had a different texture and taste yet they all went perfectly well together.
Mathieu, the chef, and his wife Mimi (hence the name 'The 2 Ms) ensure that only seasonal and fresh ingredients are used in all their dishes. Mathieu, who is also utterly charming, came to speak to us at the end of our meal to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. He revealed that he trained in Paris and spent several years in the USA before opening up his own restaurant here in the Béziers area where his roots have always remained.
Their restaurant is in part of the lovely wine domaine La Condamine and currently the wine list is comprised of the excellent wines produced there. We had a bottle of the red prestige which we found to be absolutely delicious and very good value. Mathieu has plans for the future to expand the wine cellar, but what could be more delightful than to drink the wine produced just a few feet from where you are sitting?
We will definitely be going again!
