Seriously disappointing, read all the write ups before going, thought it would be ok and it wasn't. Small (bordering on tiny) portions, no whole chicken shared in two, rubbish write up whoever said that, more like an eighth of a chicken per person and a sliver of white meat. Pasta was over cooked and morille sauce, 4 or 5 tiny... More

If you are looking for a great little restaurant that serves family style, then you found your Bistro. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We started with the escargot and their provencale soup, both were great. Then chicken...which we normally would not order at a Bistro, but this chicken was off the charts. They keep the wine flowing too!

I've eaten twice at this lovely bistro and we're planning a road trip through France next year, we plan on eating here again. We love the comfortable feeling of this restaurant and the fresh food, it's a little more money than the average French Bistro, but worth every cent. We love the cheese platter at the end. The location of... More

At EUR 96 (including tax and a de minimis tip) for lunch for two people and a bottle of wine, the bistro really lives up to its reputation. The lunch was a set three course and consisted of eggplant as appetizer, rabbit as a main course, a cheese plate, and a choice of dessert (we had creme brulee). The service... More

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
