Its the kind of place you want to keep a secret, but the restaurant deserves the fame, and my fellow tripadvisors deserve a pay back :) The food is a wow, fresh ingredients, symphony of tastes. Its not the kind of weird gourmet that only few can tolerate, its hearty gourmet that everyone will love. Service was good, the experience... More

Friends from Aix - one of them a local girl from Ansouis - invited us to this place when I asked them to take us somewhere special for 14 juillet. The restaurant did not disappoint, simply one of the best meals I ever had in France and a huge change from all the mediocre restaurants in Aix-en-Provence. Service very friendly... More

Exceptional value at €28 for an absolutely lovely lunchtime meal. The flavours of Provence were combined in every plate and we found interesting textures and aromas in very mouthful. Dining capacity is mall (12 on the terrace overlooking Luberon fields, perhaps 20 or so inside) so be sure to reserve. Service is friendly but a little inconsistent, with Delphine clearly... More

This was our "last night in Provence Celebration" and we picked the perfect place. We stayed in the Village of Ansouis in a vacation rental and a member of our travel group made a reservation for the last night for 8. We were directed to a private room, which I believe is fairly new. There is a large window to... More

We have spent a month in Lourmarin each year for the last 10 years and each year we always return to La Closerie at least once and often twice. This year, the food and the presentation was exceptional and well deserving of the Michelin star they received a few years ago. Today we had the 42 euro menu which included... More

Small restaurant in Ansouis, which now has a Michelin star, so is very popular. Food was delicious and very interesting, with dishes such as pigeon on the menu. The price is not high considering the quality of the food and service. When we asked for a recommendation for wine, the cheapest bottle on the menu was suggested and it was... More

Enjoyed lunch at this lovely place. Were seated outdoors, actually across the street from the main restaurant, but it is not a problem as Ansouis is a VERY quiet town! The restaurant is small, the service good, and the food presentation lovely. A pleasant stop on a day-trip through the Luberon. Price was not out of line at all. Reservations... More

If you are in the area this is a superb restaurant, and certainly not overpriced for the quality of the food. We had an exceptional meal and are still talking about it. The staff were professional and friendly, ignore the previous reviewer who complained of rudeness, this was certainly not here! Will definitely go back.

It is necessary to book as this Michelin starred restaurant is nearly always full, even out of peak season. It is small and feels very select with perfect service. We went for lunch, chose the gastrome menu (4 courses for 40 euros) and the food was every bit as good as the top reviews had led us to believe. Fantastic... More
