Les Enfants Terribles
Occupying an enviable spot on the picturesque Georgian harbour of Weymouth, Les Enfants Terribles is a little corner of heaven with wonderful vistas of harbour life. Now in its third year, this charming establishment provides fine fresh seafood cooked to perfection by chef and owner, Eric Tavernier. With a 30-year culinary career circumnavigating the globe, before opening his own seafood restaurant in sunny Weymouth, chef Eric’s phenomenal experience makes him well-equipped to ensure that every diner’s meal is unforgettable.
This small and welcoming restaurant is a refuge from life’s troubles, where fine food, great company and unbeatable service ensure that those who visit return time and again. Fresh fish and seafood feature heavily on the menu – the glorious signature dish of sea bass en papillote is a must-try – but you’ll also find daily meat and vegetarian offerings, and delightful children’s options. All produce is sourced locally, including Dorset meat and vegetables and fresh fish from Poole, while daily specials are sourced from just over the sea wall, travelling about four metres from the sea to your plate. With exceptional dishes like moules marinières Portland crab salad, pan-fried plaice, clams in a sumptuous cream sauce, trout with toasted almonds, and prawn linguini, you can’t fail to be impressed. If you consider yourself a foodie, or are simply looking to sample mouth-watering locally caught fish and shellfish in a seaside location, be sure to seek out Les Enfants Terribles. Booking is highly recommended, as this popular restaurant is brimming with satisfied diners most evenings.
