Cafe Lavinal

Dining in small towns in Europe has always been the most challenging. European menus in general are not very pescatarian friendly, and the language barrier in small towns is much more pronounced. Because, of that we have learned that research ahead of time, especially when trying to make an appointment, is key. This year, we have a long drive and need to find lunch before a 2:00 appointment at Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux. Café Lavinal is located in the small and very unique town of Bages, only a few minutes from our appointment, and it has rave reviews as a place for “foodies”. A traditional style French Bistro with indoor and outdoor seating and wine list to match the reputation of the region. I think both vegetarians and pescatarians could find a great meal.
