Vintage tiled floors, stone walls and timbered ceilings set the character the old place. But it is the essences and scents that tantalise and work the olfactory-magic. We had roasted farm- raised guinea hen while my femme had the Aioli, the traditional feast of steamed veggies, salt cod, and snails accompanied by the pungent garlic mayonnaise for which it is...

Four of us came for lunch today after enjoying the awesome Klimt and Vienna exhibition at Carrières de Lumieres. Above all, we loved the atmosphere indoors because it is quintessentially French. The menu was simple and totally pleasing, with a main course of Bresse chicken accompanied by home-made tagliatelli with morilles. Excellent cheeses too and quantities of Mont Redon (a... More

We had a group of six for lunch and were very happy to eat here. Two of our group had been here before and loved it. We started with snails to be dipped in home made aioli which was garlicky and delicious. Next came the large bowl of salad followed by pieces of cod. I am not a fan of... More

For years this has been a unique bistrot eperience to look forward to, for the old traditionbal ambiance, the plentiful, mouth-watering single daily menu, the cheerfu, welcoming staff. Last week's "Aioli" was a demonstration of the new regime which has taken over the place. Instead of a generous platter with several kinds of steamed vegetables, plus cod, this time a... More

What a wonderful dining experience. One must hand it to the French as they really know how to dine with a great style & ambience. We sat outside,with the September sun glistening through the leaves on the trees. There is a choice of 2 starters & there is just the one main course,followed by cheese board,a choice from perhaps 3/4... More

We ate at this bisto twice in one week, by & large that was because it's one of only two restaurants in the village! However, the food is indeed very good. If you haven't read it before, the deal is that there is a set menu of around 50 euros per person (not bad at all for this part of... More

Love this little bistro. We ate here twice when we were in Les Baux a few years ago and could not wait to try again. It did not disappoint! Fabulous and fun!

We hadn't booked a table here, but were seated quickly at what must have been the last table. The restaurant had a real buzz and energy, and the waiters, who were run off their feet, were still helpful and friendly. Enormous portions of very very good food - the dish was lamb that day. Not what I would normally have... More

This is our favourite Restaurant in the Alpilles and having eaten here twice last week hopeful demonstrates our commitment to this wonderful venue. The quality of the food and service delivered in this simple French bistro is just fantastic and if you are in the area I would advise booking in advance for both lunch and dinner. For 53€ you...
