During our next visit Monsieur Navez sat at the table, staring helplessly at a computer screen, which was supposed to help him settle the bills. He obviously did not want to follow in the footsteps of the previous owner, who settled bills efficiently on a piece of paper, using long hand addition. He rather preferred to do it on the computer, cursing and swearing at the blinking machine, but nevertheless…
After this visit we returned two times to “La Tour d’Auvergne”, rechristened now as “Lys’toire du Charolais”. The quality of the meat had deteriorated so much in the course of a few months, that we decided to try our luck elsewhere next time.
All restaurants in Saint-Christophe serve a more or less identical number of set menus on market days; the price is also more or less the same. “Le mur d’Argent” we had tried once before, but we preferred the atmosphere and the ambiance (then) in “La Tour d’Auvergne”.
