Fantastic! The staff is so amazing and attentive...they knew we had been there the day before and offered an alternative menu as we had the lamb the night before! The food is so well-prepared, presented and, oh so delicious! An absolute favourite place for a wonderful dining, ambiance...and the wonderful care from the staff!

My husband and I were the first to arrive for dinner, about 7:30, with no reservation, but got a lot of attention from the funny waiter and felt very welcome. Somehow we ended up with three bottles of wine on our table, and that's probably why I don't remember exactly what we ate. I DO remember that I really enjoyed... More

Le Bistro du Paradou was wonderful. It’s very casual, with a no entrée choice menu, high quality food and an excellent value. One of our best meals in Provence. Either the menu doesn't change often or we had lunch with CLCChicago (see the review just before this one) on June 5th because we had the exact same menu. The starters... More

We had a lovely leisurely lunch here and it was one of our best meals in France (for a week). Charming interior. Chef-chosen menu (you at what they cook), everything was prepared to perfection. The day we were there the menu was escargot (or salad), Bresse chicken, pasta with morels, a show-stopping cheese board and dessert (you choose). I won't... More

We showed up 40 minutes early for our dinner reservation (our hotel made the reservation for us, we asked for 7:30 and when they told us we had a reservation they neglected to tell us that the restaurant doesn't open until 8) and after the initial shock of guests arriving so early we were given a warm welcome, seated and...

The place is very cozy, the food is simple but great, the service is very good and very friendly, the ambience is very agreable. Without doubt it is a place you have to go when you are in Provence. The menu is decided by the chef and the price for dinner around 55€ per person which seems adequate. By the... More

If you are in this Region (Alpilles) and do not have lunch or dinner at this great venue you will miss the greatest food, service and atmosphere any restaurant can offer you. We would never miss the opportunity to eat here as it is an institution and must be experienced. Vincent, Pierre and their team offer great service and the... More

I am a foodie, my husband just loves food! But we both agreed that this was not only one of the best meals we have ever tasted, but one of the most authentic and unique meal experiences as well. Locals plan their week around what's being served. There are no choices, one meal is cooked for all just as if... More

A delightful prix fixe menu. Very few choices but everything was good. The coquilles st. Jacques were very tasty. The poulet de Bresse was excellent. The cheese course was spectacular. Unlimited wine. Coffee on the terrace. A wonderful three-hour lunch made even more memorable by our waiter. I started out thinking he had too much attitude but realized he was... More

There is nothing special about this place, just a bistro full of peasants and the waiters feel special because some stars drop in from time to time. The only reason for this is, that this bistro is close to Oustau Baumaniere - not more, especially not the food. There is only a fixed menu, which could be good from time... More
