Best in town

As regular visitor of this restaurant I hesitate to recommend it, afraid of not being able to find a table anymore, but the place really deserves it. Great creative local dishes and no french fries out of principle. Incredible what can be done in a former garage!

All year round open, a rarity in carces, dishes with fresh ingredients and great wine from the region. A must after a long drive and for those in need for an affordable dinner with friendly service, including free wifi.

Very lovely food and good service in this converted garage makes this a must if in the area. We loved our veal and lamb. All is excellent including the attentive English speaking owners.

the food is really straight out of a 20th century french cooking book. No nouvelle cuisine and no extravagant ingredients. Just good quality and nice presentation. It's worth it. I summer may be problematic to find a parking near by.

Back again twice in a week at my favourite restaurant in Carces. It it always a pleasure, warm welcome and still the excellent service and food you have gotten used to expect. The first night with my wife and two days later with colleagues, a group of 12. Magnificent Brick Provencale, Porc in creamy sauce and the Cafe Gourmand. The... More

Lovely place with right amount of choices. Tables on the outside are a bit close to traffic but they have made it cosy with a lot of vegetation between serving and the road. The food is great and served in a modern way with a lot of tastes. I had the rib and came out satisfied and well fed.

We had dinner here on a recent break to Carces, and really enjoyed it. Having passed it earlier in the day we opted for a table on the outside vine covered terrace, which had a great relaxed ambience in the evening. The service in particular was excellent - friendly and attentive. Food was fresh and perfectly cooked (delicious scallop dish!).... More

You could almost miss it from the outside - the restaurant is, as far as I can tell, a converted garage (the service pit cover traverses the floor to this day) and the frontage is quite small with only a couple of tables and a vine covered awning to draw attention. Inside the decor is unusual for Provence, but charming... More

This charming restaurant is small -- it appears to have been a former garage. It appears to be operated by a husband and wife. The decoration is charming and a bit funky. It feels really comfortable similar to a great coffee shop. We found the food to be excellent. We really had no expectations, as we found it while driving... More

It's a small restaurant with a few tables outside, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in its food and service. The menu is interesting, the food well cooked and presented.The pricing is competitive. It is best to make a reservation to avoid disappointment , the experience is worth while, expect to enjoy a nice lunch or... More
