To celebrate a special occasion, a friend of mine who works in the wine trade recommended his favourite restaurant: Le Tournant.

Patrons are welcomed at a wooden counter, as spicy and aromatic smells emerge from the open kitchen to tease the senses.

Natural wines*


Whitewashed brick walls, slate menus, enticing wine lists hanging on wooden beams, and no more than ten tables... this delightful spot comes with one drawback: its success means you may have to wait for a table, leaning on the bar counter full of hope. In just five minutes ten people have formed a "queue". Patience is rewarded in time.

An adventurous duo


In another life, Philippe and Baptiste worked in law and nursing. Then came this crazy notion to open a restaurant. Their international dishes and slow-cooking stews have made them a success. These natural wine* enthusiasts take great care in choosing their tipples and have now opened a wine bar right next door.
My recommendations: try the King prawns with the coco-pesto-rosso sauce (€14.90) or the sausage rougail (€15.30). The food here is so delicious you'll wish you had discovered it long ago.



* Alcoholic beverages should be consumed in moderation. Please drink responsibly.

Gabriel, 32 TENNIS PRO

I teach tennis in the city and also write about culture for a number of publications. I love to travel and meet people. My city? It's an improv concert in a down-to-earth bar, an exhibition built on a work site, a play performed in the heart of the old city... My little extra: combining sport and culture!
