Les Enfants Terribles
19 Custom House Quay, Weymouth, DT4 8BG
Next time you find yourself in the beautiful seaside town of Weymouth, follow the Custom House Quay along the waterfront to Les Enfants Terribles. The charming facade presents an irresistible picture – painted nautical blue and white, with large bay windows and a doorway draped with hanging lights. The menus are designed by classically trained French chef Eric Tavernier. Eric has spent 30 years working as a chef across several continents, giving his culinary repertoire a certain je ne sais quoi. The daily lunch menu is chalked up on blackboards at the front, enticing guests with promises of Dorset oysters and classic fish soup. To partake of the evening menu it’s best to book in advance as Les Enfants Terribles is bustling with happy diners almost every evening. Situated so close to the sea, with a steady stream of fresh seafood and such a talented chef at its helm, this is an ideal venue for fish-lovers. Discover the likes of vodka- and beetroot-cured salmon on creamy celeriac remoulade. Why not follow with chef Eric’s signature dish – sea bass baked en papillote with carrots, leeks and fennel, enhanced with Pouilly-Fumé? Guests will also find tasty vegetarian dishes alongside the exquisitely prepared seafood. For the perfect finish, enjoy a delectable homemade pudding or the monthly changing cheeseboard.
