LA MAISON DU VERT
Vegetarian Hotel and Restaurant

Restaurant

The Vegetarian Restaurant at La Maison du Vert is here to serve you delicious gourmet vegetarian and Vegan menus with plenty of choice. Over the past 9 years our restaurant has gained an excellent reputation with locals and tourists visiting from all over the world. Our cuisine reflects this, offering flavour sensations from all corners of the globe, perfectly combined in our completely vegetarian kitchen.

Your evening starts with tasty olives served with your pre-dinner drinks.
You may find it difficult to decide between our delicious home made liqueurs, cocktails and french aperitifs! You can enjoy your tipple outside in our beautiful relaxing gardens or in our comfortable guest lounge. This is followed by your choice of dishes from our current menu (see example below). We always serve our popular homemade organic bread with garden herb flavoured butters to accompany your meal.

All our dishes are home made with the freshest produce available, the majority being our own home grown organic vegetables, fruit and herbs. We believe that the best eating experience is created out of vegetarian, organic, environmentally friendly food. Our menu has plenty of choice for vegans and most dishes can be adapted to be vegan.
We also happily cater for special diets such as Gluten free.
We don't have a children's menu as they vary so much with their tastes so we just cook them what they like to eat! Some will happily eat from the menu whilst others prefer plainer foods such as pasta or jacket potatoes.
Just let us know when you book if you have any special requirements.

All of our eggs are from our free-range, well-loved chickens who live with freedom at the bottom of the garden until they die a natural death and go to chicken heaven. Do you know that chickens can live 8 - 10 years or more? We have some lovely old girls and cockerels. We also have turkeys, one of our handsome chaps loves posing for the camera!

The restaurant is sophisticatedly decorated, with cream drapes framing the lovely views of our garden and the village from the window. There are always fresh flowers from our garden on every table. A mix of both French and English ambient music emphasizes this relaxing atmosphere. You can choose to eat on our garden terrace if you prefer, enjoying our beautiful gardens and the lush Normandy countryside.

From our mouth-watering menu to our organic wines, carefully chosen to complement vegetarian food, much care and attention to detail is taken. Presentation and nutritional quality is just as important to us as the delectable taste.
We offer many different liqueurs and spirits (the famous local calvados being one important one!) cocktails and coffees, as well as a wide range of herbal and fruit teas, non-alcoholic cordials (some home made), juices, local organic apple or pear cider and bottled waters.
