I was traveling with my family in the south of France and we stumbled upon a treasure of a restaurant in Gourdon. The name is quite fitting, Le Nid d’ Aigle(eagles nest), since it is perched up high on the edge of a cliff.
The ancient medieval town is so old you almost can’t believe it is still standing. When I saw this restaurant for the first time all I could think about was “how in the world was this building built without modern technologies and/or equipment? Also how many hours of painstaking labor were put into building this town?” The workmanship on the masonry is absolutely beautiful; it is a magnificent sight to see.
Once I got past the exterior beauty I went inside to enjoy a different kind of beauty. The restaurant was formal but not stiff. The food was traditional local cuisine, very yummy. You could taste the freshness in the food. I ordered the Foie gras, which was the best part of my meal. Foie gras is a guilty pleasure of mine that tugs at my conscience. I do not order it often but I was not going to pass on ordering Foie gras in France. As we ate our food we looked out at the spectacular view and enjoyed every single minute.Gourdon is a beautiful village and the views are spectacular. Le Nid d’ Aigle was just the cherry on top. If you are in the area and find your self-hungry then check out Le Nid d’ Aigle.
