With burgundy-coloured banquettes and walls, bentwood chairs at white-clothed tables covered with paper liners, and darkwood floors, Magdalen works a classy bistro look. Dishes are marked by their simplicity and combinations (backed by the kitchen's technical skill and careful choice of ingredients), so clear flavours speak for themselves. Saddleback pork terrine is helped along by preserved shiitaki mushrooms and tarragon, while main course fish stew is a vibrant bowl of hake, gilt head bream and clams in an intense stock pointed up with fennel and aïoli. Pastry skills are also exemplary, as witnessed in a preserved cherry and almond tart served with crème fraîche.
