The sunny south east seems to be turning very continental in the last few years. Wexford and Wicklow are home to some of the best French and Italian restaurants in the country. Et Voila French Bistro is one of the ones to visit for anyone planning a French odyssey in this part of the country.

Chef/owner Gilles Laforge has a good reputation locally and the restaurant has built a following for unpretentious French food at very fair prices. Et Voila is situated in a modern building and has a large picture window. Inside the décor is contemporary with wooden floors, cream walls and nicely spaced tables featuring good quality linens and table ware.

In addition to the A la Carte menu which is quite comprehensive, offering starters such as spicy battered crab, scallops with crispy pork belly steak tartar and saddle of rabbit with black pudding stuffing. Main courses continue in this vein, and choices include medallions of veal, guinea fowl supreme with venison leaves, pan fried fillet of black sole with lemon butter. There is also a daily special and some staples, seasons permitting include mussels mariniere and sautéed prawns.

There is a lunch menu costing around €14.00 each day and two set evening menus, priced at €24 or €29 depending on what time you have it at. Gilles has also recently introduced an a la carte plus menu, which features the best dishes on the menus, but at a fixed price of €45 for starter, main course, desserts and tea or coffee.

They make their own bread, served with herb butters and you will probably also enjoy an amuse Bouche. The wine list is mostly French, with a good cross section to choose from. Et Voila is another excellent restaurant bucking the recession by offering people a little of what they fancy, without charging ridiculous prices.
