Les Fleurs de Thym ( flowers of thyme)

I recently had a fabulous lunch at a port-side restaurant in Les Sables-d’Olonne, Fleurs de Thym, www.fleursdethym.fr
The port is on the Atlantic ocean in La Vendée, not far from La Rochelle.

The cuisine is delicious, inventive and VERY reasonable.  There are 3 menus (ranging from 16-28 euros), each with an appetizer, main course & dessert.

Every dish was superb and beautifully presented.  But, the Filet de Thon mi-cuit, sauce bourride au safron (lighty cooked tuna with a saffton bourride sauce) and the Gâteau Pistache (pistachio cake) with raspberry sauce were truly outstanding!
