Lydie's has got both charm and character. There's a European Union flag waving at the entrance. There are tables draped with bright cotton fabrics, and plate glass dishes in blue, tons of sand, palm trees, flowers, a choice of places on which to crash, from an upstairs dining room, over the main kitchen area, from which you can savor all the delicious smells, to a dark and mysterious thatched cottage nearby with hanging eaves with baskets lined with cushions on which you can recline. All this excitement is just for starters. The main course is when you meet the owner herself. Lydie is a one-woman entertainment squad with a head of blonde curls that shake as she speaks. She's from Belgium, which accounts for the EU flag. Almost all the items - chiefy European dishes - qualify for a thumbs up, but it's the desserts that are by far the best. From fizzy floats and soft drinks there are gorgeous ice-cream and custard filled to the brim with genuine Belgian chocolate that come with an assortment of flavours and a Josephine Baker surprise pudding that features bananas. At Lydie's you can get all the bananas you want with a scoop of cream and dark and sinful Belgian chocolate to dream about as you lie back under the dark night of the Coromandel Coast.
