Domaine Gayda, Brugairolles, France - Restaurant Review March 2009

Situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees and surrounded by its vineyards, Domaine Gayda is a new destination in the Languedoc near Limoux and 25km south west of Carcassonne, in the village of Brugairolles.

The restaurant, incorporated in the winery building, makes for an exceptional environment in which to discover their excellent food and wines. Enjoy the spectacular views and the modern French cuisine prepared with the passion and creativity of their chef Pascal Ledroit.

Nestled in the vines, and tucked away in the pine forest behind the restaurant are six new "Paillotes" which offer a unique barbecue dining experience.
Pascal's team will cook up delicious three course al fresco menus. Choose from Mediterranean fish fresh from the market, suckling pig, veal or lamb accompanied with aromatic salads and hearty potato wedges, and plenty of Domaine Gayda wine of course!

The paillotes can accommodate between 8 and 12 people maximum, and each one has a wonderful private view over the surrounding countryside.

The lunch menu is available at 21.95 €, every day except weekends and Bank Holidays. They also have a 39€, 49€ and an "A la Carte" menu.
"Le Restaurant" is open every day except Sunday evening and Monday and Tuesday all day.

Domaine Gayda has 11 hectares of vineyard surrounding the winery and a further 8 hectares are situated around the village of 'La Liviniere', in the foothills of the Black Mountains. You are invited to visit the wine shop situated at the Domaine offering a range of wines and local products selected by Gayda. Visit their website for a calendar of events such as jazz nights and concerts.
