A spot on wine bar with an outstanding food produce selection and a lovely rustic feel.
Rustic décor, a few big wooden tables, vintages from small-scale producers and handpicked food produce all make La Cave Marcadet a very lovely place to visit. In fact, we like almost all of it – one wall boasts a frieze of famous bon vivants, from Socrates to Gainsbourg to Dalì, by local comic book artist Lulu d’Ardis. Only the indifferent soundtrack fails to impress.
From the food selection a Marcadet planche (€22) brings an almost overwhelming array of burrata, pungent Lou Bren sheep’s milk cheese, moreish rillettes, cured Wagyu beef and more. We also added in a round of goat’s cheese with honey and truffle (€8.50), both greedy and delicious. The bar staff will recommend a bottle to match your meal and your taste, and we loved a chilled organic Saumur Champigny, Domaine des Roches Neuves (€20). All in all, a delight.
