We lingered before ordering dessert, trying to delay our departure, but in the end succumbed to the menu. My dessert was Lime flavoured Creme Brulee with Poached Apricots and the best almond biscotti I have ever eaten. Mary chose the Chocolate Fondant with Cherries and Tamarind Syrup. We both declared dessert the perfect ending to a perfect meal.

I'd waited years to get there but I agree entirely with Rick Stein: "Fleur's Place is everything I hoped it would be". Fleur's Place is definitely my kind of place. Fleur would loathe being called a celebrity chef, indeed, she now has chefs who do the cooking, and my admiration of Fleur's Place is really based on the whole package...Fleur as a person, what she has been through in her life, including cancer, what she has achieved, the quality of the ingredients, the lack of pretention, the very reasonable prices and the idyllic location.
