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 leek and white truffle fricassee. Meat lovers should note that Chef Stéphane Lamotte's excellent €29 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.
