The hosts of our B&B near Languidic recommended Fleur de Sel and called ahead not only to make a reservation but also to be sure the chef had it in mind to open. Apparently, there is a steady business mid-day, but the evenings can be slow in this small village, and Amir, the owner/chef prepares evening meals to suit his schedule. In fact, he wanted to know how many were in our party (we were four), which made us wonder has we been only be a party of two if he would have served dinner. In the end, there were only two other guests in the restaurant the whole evening.
Once a table has been reserved, diners are off to a great experience as detailed by previous reviews. Amir was a one man show - waiting on the tables, bartending, preparing the meals, even cleaning up the kitchen. Before we left, he had the lights out in the kitchen! He is a whirlwind of activity in addition to being a terrific chef who has created his own "interpretations" (his term) of many dishes which were all very pleasing. The most tender lamb imaginable served with grated celery root and quinoa was a particular hit.
All of us in our party would highly recommend Fleur de Sel - for the food and the opportunity to engage with a fascinating chef.
