The restaurant offers three menu's, 16 ? for the menu du jour, 25 ? and 35 ?. We chose the 25 ? menu which consisted of an amuse-bouche, an entr?e, a main course and either a cheese course or dessert. The meal started with homemade cheese straws with our first glass of wine. This was a nice touch as nibbles are usually only served if an ap?ritif is ordered. The amuse-bouche was an oyster gratin?ed with mushroom cream sauce. The flavor of both shallots and mushrooms came through without hiding the taste of the warmed oyster and the gratin?ed cream on top was perfectly puffed and golden. I tried the soupe de poisson for an entr?e. It was gorgeous! Most of the fish soup I've had in this area has been a bit thin and watery but this was just the right thickness, with tomatoes and herbs and a delicious fish flavor. My husband tried the terrine de gibiers (a p?t? of game meat) served with a sauce gribiche and homemade toasts. We were both very happy with our choices. We had the same main course, a boneless leg of capon, rolled and cooked in a cocotte (a covered casserole dish) and served with a quenelle of cooked red cabbage on mashed potatoes with saut?d carrots and saut?d wild mushrooms on either side. The flavor of everything was perfect and I was very happy with the variety of vegetables. We both decided to have dessert instead of cheese. I chose the trio of homemade sorbets and was sadly disappointed. The flavors of the day were strawberry, orange and apple. The strawberry was good but the orange was mediocre and the apple was too icy and had very little flavor. My husband had the apple crumble. It was good, with slices of kiwi fruit mixed into the apple and a nice aroma of crushed almonds coming from the crumble topping, but not exceptional. Overall, L'Auberge C?t? Jardin was a great restaurant. We loved the food and the service was very friendly. Our server kindly offered to help us choose wine to go with our meal and wanted to practice his English with us. The restaurant's only weakness was the desserts, but the quality of the savory courses more than made up for it. We enjoyed the dining room as we ate here in December but they have a beautiful terrace to enjoy in the summer months.
