L'Aquarelle - 22 rte Cande 17920 Breuillet, France

If you are ever North of Bordeaux and have a few hours to kill I'd recommend you go to L'Aquarelle.  (it's really really good...)

Ballottine de Foie Gras et Anguille Fumee, Reduction d'un Vin Chaud - Creamy Foie, crunchy coating of nuts with smokey yet delicate Eel.  The little shots are Beetroot Puree and heavily reduced Red Wine.  I could have eaten two...

Carpaccio de Langoustines, Mousse de Lait Coriallee - Pure mouth sex, delicate langoustine interspersed with mustard seeds and sweet nuggets of Coral.  The mousse was impossibly light and worked perfect along side the sweet flesh.

Rouget Fumee aux Aiguilles de Pin, Bouillon D'Aretes et Olives Taggiasche - Amazingly smoked Red Mullet with Cockles.  Possibly one of the prettiest things I've ever eaten.

Mousse Citron, Cacao, Crumble de Petit Pois - Yep that's Lemon Mousse, Chocolate and a Pea Crumble...  The peas were dehydrated and it just bloody worked perfectly.

Tarte aux Fraises Meringuee, Glace aux Asperges Blanches...  The French really know how to make pastry but Asparagus Ice Cream (not pictured) was not pleasant.  It didn't stop me wolfing down the Strawberry and Meringue goodness though...
