And, just below Crillon le Brave

A small and quaint country Provencal restaurant, Vieux Four is a perfect alternative to dining at Crillon le Brave or venturing to nearby towns for a very good dinner. The menu is just right, a nice wine selection, not formal or fussy. But... cash only.

We made 7 pm reservations with Cathy for a Friday night mid-October. The restaurant is nestled into this picturesque town, it seems carved into the limestone cliffs. It has intimate charm and the food held the same standards as the ambiance. The prix fix menu offered starters such as scallops with salmon and terrine of duck foie gras( deliciously creamy)...

Tiny traditional restaurant almost carved into the rock. Only had a prix fixe menu but the food was AMAZING. very hearty fare, i.e. no veggies or salad with the main but honestly for my wife and I, one of the best meals we've ever eaten. Great value too - €39 for three courses per person.

We were looking for a nice restaurant near the hotel and conveniently the Restaurant du Vieux Four is just a few steps down from the Hotel Crillon Le Brave where we were staying. Once you walk down the steps you come to a lovely restaurant with a courtyard that feels like you're in different village with fabulous views. Food: They... More

We have eaten here several times and all have been perfect meals. We were lucky that the weather cooperated and we ate on the terrace one evening looking towards Mt. Ventoux and the ever changing reflections from the sunset. The inside of the restaurant is charming and will not disappoint. The menu, for 29 Euros includes an entree, main and... More

We saw this little restaurant on one of our walks around town and wanted to try something outside of the hotel. And we were very pleased! It was a great menu at a good price. The staff made us feel welcome and although they spoke limited English and we spoke limited French we did just fine ordering appreciated the suggestions... More

My husband and I had a meal here last night. Not the most expensive meal on this trip but certainly one of the best. Menu €29 each and the food was really good and thoroughly enjoyable. We will go back here again for the 2nd time before we leave the area as this is a restaurant not yo be missed.... More

Like others we stayed at the hotel and ate here. In Britain this food would be well worth a detour and good vallue.

Went here recently in order to avoid the hotel upstairs. We werent sure what to expect as it's small and hidden away but the reviews on here made it an easy decision to try it out. The menu was concise but interesting (local dishes prix fixe 29 Euros) and I have to say the food was unbelievable. There was an... More
