Our best dinners in France were here

We were so lucky to have rented a villa in Paradou, literally down the street from this fantastic place. We loved the environment, the wine is set down on the table and you eat what's been cooked. The food is incredible - the best chicken and lamb I have ever eaten. The creme brûlée is perfect. The... read more

The local bistro attracts patrons from all around the area - not hard to understand why. A set menu, you get a few choices of starter or dessert by it's essentially a fixed menu but don't fear - it's absolutely superb. If you're worried call ahead and see what's on the lunch or evening menu which they change twice a... More

Best roast chicken I have ever had - great owners and wait staff set off a cracking atmosphere. A must if you are in the Alpilles Booking essential and if you are a bit fussy like me check what they are serving as there is no menu. The cheese and desserts never change and are simply sensational . We'll done... More

Le Bistro is part of the fabric of culinary life in Provence. Set menu which varies each day and is cooked to perfection, great staff who desire to please (and work very hard), exciting atmosphere created by guests delighting in the restaurant - well worth a visit. There is a sense of energy around the place that makes a visit... More

Great to eat al fresco just be aware the mosquito season in this part of Provence in much worse than normal so wrap up well and/or use all deterrents at your disposal! If you come ready for the above and are aware of the fixed price + fixed food choice menu ( which includes wine ) then you will experience... More

Le Paradou features a set menu of four courses for 55 euros. You begin with aperitifs at the outside patio and then move inside for the main event. It's a casual setting and the menu is provided in advance. If something doesn't suit you, substitutions are possible. After the main course, the cheese tray is placed on your table for... More

We had a great time at Le Bistro du Paradou and enjoyed the unlimited wine that came with the meal (although you must drink a decent amount to make up for cost of the dinner). The escargot were fantastic (other option that night for appetizer was foie gras ravioli) and the chicken was very good according to the rest of... More
