During a recent vacation in this area we had lunch in this restaurant. We chose the three course menu and enjoyed it all. The main course fish was cooked to perfection and served with a delicious accompaniment. The dessert was a delicious combination of fruit pastry and gelato. This was also a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle.

We had dinner in this restaurant where we had been once before and took the menu at 32€. The food was very tasty and original. Nice selection of wine to choose from. I really recommend this place in Vaison.

This restaurant has been an old favourite of ours over the years but has had its ups and downs and changes of ownership. However, following a recent dip, it has now returned to good form It has a good location with the best tables overlooking the river Ouveze. It also now has an outside space on the other side of...

Nice to sit outside and good service. But we were the only guests besides an old couple who were sitting inside. Food was good, but overpriced?

The food was good quality,but small portions and high prices. The view was surprisingly nice hugging a small cliff over the river, facing old town.The staff was professional but not really warm. I was more comfortable in La Lyriste a few blocks away as it was family-owned, more traditional home-cooking, and the owners were super-charming and warm without being overwhelming;... More

Good service, modern restaurant, Spanish cuisine. Food was not outstanding but good. Starters were great while fish for my main were too salty and over cooked. 10 for presentation, 6-8 depending on a dish for taste

One of the best meals we had in France. The 35 Euro menu is superb and very good value. Each course is fresh and delicious and just the right size. The wine is good and very reasonably priced. Would recommend Le Bateleur to anyone visiting Vaison Le Romaine.

My wife and I had lunch at Le Bateleur twice during our week stay in Vaison-la-Romaine and absolutely loved it. A husband and wife team of Adriana and Nicolas own and run the small and very elegant restaurant just downstream from the Roman Bridge. They are talented and gracious and make one welcome from beginning to end of the dining... More

We had a wonderful dining experience from start to finish at Le Bateleur. The service was welcoming, watchful and excellent. The food was even better! From the "Amuse-bouche" to the dessert, the preparation, the presentations, the flavors and the wine choices made for a wonderful dining experience. The entrée was asparagus - some cooked, some raw - with thin slices... More

We arrived as a group of four at this restaurant for a late lunch on Market day in this pretty town, we have never been to the restaurant or the town before but we would happily return to both. LE BATELEUR is a really elegant restaurant with very friendly staff who went out of their way to make us feel... More
