With the port and fish market within netting distance, seafood is guaranteed to be fresh here. Decor-wise, L'Orchidée is a no-frills place—the visual appeal is on your plate: picture homemade fish terrine with smoked salmon and avocado sauce, or scallops with a leak and white truffle fricassee. Meat lovers should note that Chef Stéphane Lamotte's excellent €24 set menu also features dishes such as duck breast with foie gras cream sauce. Mouthwatering desserts, like
the rice-pudding with candied orange peel and Grand Marnier, will make you opt for the extra course.
