It is not the first time we dined at Les Jardins de Sainte Cécile, a restaurant located in the old convent of Sainte-Cécile in Grenoble. This is a nice place that combines both the old from the convent with a modern feel.
Our meal there was pretty good: Jodi who is vegetarian had a dish made with seasonal vegetables that they prepared without any issue as there was barely any vegetarian choice on the menu.
On my side, I ordered the tartare de bœuf au couteau, their version of the classic beef tartare, where the meat is, a it should, cut with a knife in even pieces (a bad tartare is made with ground meat). I mixed everything together at the exception of the lettuce, and ate it with the crispy fried potatoes that came with it.
We also got a dessert. Sorbet for Jodi (mango, lemon):
A sablé breton (very buttery cookie from Brittany) with pistachio mousse for me:
This was a pretty good meal. Les Jardins de Sainte Cécile offers a nice menu for lunch, in a nice atmosphere and with an impeccable service: definitely an address to know in Grenoble.
Enjoy (I did)!
