It is when we arrive in Challans, a small town with a playful air, that we crave a couscous. It didn't take us long to find a restaurant specializing in this area. An address: The Prince
Update March 10, 2019: The Prince is closed for unknown reasons, the restaurant will be sold and may not be resumed
Our visit at The Prince
Located in the center of Challans, Le Prince restaurant is run by a very warm gentleman.
After trying to contact the restaurant for information, we came across the answering machine. To my surprise, the restaurant manager got back to us as soon as he could, a few minutes later. He then guided us through Challans, towards his restaurant.
During the meal, he came several times to ask us if everything was going well and came to take an interest in us, without being too oppressive.
The proposals of the restaurant
The dishes can be eaten in or taken away. For couscous, there is a wide choice which should satisfy a wide audience: the specialty “Le Prince”, barbecue, brochettes, lamb, chicken, merguez, kefta or vegetarian.
The restaurant also offers tajines: lamb, chicken or kefta.
As an accompaniment, you can choose a wine from different origins: Algeria, Tunisia or Morocco. There are also other less traditional spirits, or soft drinks.
For dessert, The Prince offers tea, fruit salads, oriental pastries or ice cream.
The atmosphere and the decor
Directly on entering, a bar-counter serves as a reception. Tables for eating on site are arranged on each side.
The restaurant is dressed in oriental style, which includes the decoration but also the background music. In addition, a television broadcasts videos of oriental dances.
As for tables and dishes, everything is done to keep the tradition. Forget the glasses and plates of big production, here the ornaments are almost unique and will make you travel.
Good plan ?
For having said nothing but good things about this restaurant, I can't fault this restaurant. I fell in love with this restaurant and its manager. As for the rates, they are largely affordable. And you will have monetized your meal, given the large amount of food served. The atmosphere makes you travel and it is surprising to see how far we can detach ourselves from reality, by regaining consciousness of our little life when leaving the restaurant.
