Reviews Are Divided, But For A Lazy Evening It’s All Good…

After a day of hard work walking around the castle in La Roche, Belgium, I finally get back to our accommodation.

Luckily  since the summer days are long and the weather has been  sunny with fabulous  blue skies, Himself and I had already decided on a late dinner tonight so that the kids could play and swim  as much as possible during the daylight hours.

We also decided not to cook tonight because our friend said that there’s a café / restaurant at the camping site and having eaten there earlier in the week he recommend it.

I managed a three hour sleep and some time with an icepack on my foot  after raiding the little kitchen of our rooms of the ice-blocks left in the freezer and was a little more refreshed once Himself picked me up to join the others for dinner.

Everyone meets us at restaurant  “Auberge de Lohan” , it has a balcony with outdoor seating  that overlooks part of the camp site, so we start there but are eventually driven inside as it gets a bit too cool as the sun disappears.The dishes are simple enough and our friend raved, but Himself and I agreed afterwards that whilst the food wasn’t terrible it wasn’t particularly outstanding either, this was more in the style of a  “basic”  takeaway meal instead of  what I’d call restaurant quality fare.

It was edible and it filled a gap, and we didn’t have any dishes to wash. Sometimes that’s enough.  The kids polished off ice cream for dessert and played until they dropped  wearily into bed whilst the adults sat, talked and watched them.  An excellent summer’s evening all in all.
