You can find Antonin Bonnet in his restaurant Quinsou (chaffinch in the local Ardeche dialect), which has replaced the short-lived Adalie, just opposite the Ferrandi hotel management school. The setting is extremely warm and cozy, with pale wood tables and brown leather bench seating. But the essentials are what you get on your plate, of course, with a rather long list of dishes to choose from depending on the chosen prix-fixe menu, all prepared with exceptional ingredients. If you’re in luck, the ever-changing menu may feature a soft-cooked egg on an exquisite bread soup with a scattering of chanterelle mushrooms and tetragon, followed by an amazing line-caught sea bream with puréed carrots, spinach shoots and subtly tangy white wine jus. Dessert brings a chestnut tartlet with fromage blanc sorbet and creamy chocolate – already a must on the menu. There is a remarkable selection of fine wines, with even a few good “natural” wines… which is rare! This is definitely a buzz-worthy restaurant, given the exceptional quality for the price. Lunch special at €28. Prix-fixe menus at €45 and €65. Prix-fixe lunch menus at €28, €35 and e45 in 2, 3 or 4 courses.
