Lovely lunch

Delicious Saturday afternoon lunch. Great staff and nice atmosphere, just tell them about any dietary requirements before hand and they will cater for you. Would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

We never get tired writing about the success of Bistro Paradou, our regular bistro for over 12 years of visiting Provence. This must be the one restaurant and dining experience you must discover if you are near Paradou, in fact it is well worth going here just to experience the Bistro. That said, you must book to be sure of... More

Very pleasant surprise. Charming room, old fashioned design, warm and welcoming waiters. The unique menu was delicious. Italian salad, lamb with mashed potatoes, cheese plate and delicious dessert. The whole menu for 41euros. House red wine good. We had a few dietary requests and the staff was great at accomodating us. We recoomend the restaurant and can't wait to come.... More

Visited this restaurant with a group of five last week whilst holidaying in La Paradou.The set menu format took all the dilemma of choice out of our hands and replaced it with a comfort and ambiance similar to dining in the home of good friends. An option of escargot or eggplant in the first course and several tempting desserts made... More

Wonderful meal--the roasted chicken was truly the best ever--with special kudos to the cheesemakers and ice cream makers. Pierre and team were friendly and informative, with not a hint of stuffiness or pretention. Warm atmosphere and efficient and unrushed service. A special evening.

We had dinner here on Saturday night. The restaurant was busy. The service was attentive and the food was delicious. The dinner offers 4 + courses and includes wine. You can't beat the value for the money spent on a dinner of this quality. I highly recommend The Bistrot du Paradou.

We ate lunch here with a group and the food was very good. We had roast chicken with homemade pasta. The flavors of the chicken were very tasty! The wait staff was a playful group that made each one of us feel special. It is the type of bistro that makes you want to sit back, enjoy the food and... More

We visited this restaurant as part of a group. We had a little over 60 people and everyone felt welcomed. The restaurant is a typical Provencal, family run establishment. It has an great outside terrace for lunch or when the weather is warmer. The inside has a large bar area, but still enough space to sit all 60 people. The... More

This place has been an institution in south western Provence for the past decade, if not longer. Worth a detour. Reservations essential. Wonderful family atmosphere matches incredible food. Understand there are few choices: you eat what the chef had prepared for each meal.

We had lunch at the bistro. It began with roasted eggplant and tomato tapenade. Then we were served delicious chicken that was free range and loaded with flavor. The skin was very crisp and loaded with flavor. This was followed by a cheese plate with 12 cheeses (the only mediocre part of the meal, as the cheeses were not uniformly... More
