We had lunch in this restaurant twice. On both occasions the food was excellent, the service friendly and helpful and all-in-all great value for money.

The previous reviewer's experience was similar to mine; this was the best meal I had in France (and there were many good ones to choose from) and one of my favorite meals of all-time. I don't want to overhype this place, but I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for classic French cuisine. I read about La Bartavelle in Rick... More

Absolutely outstanding! The food was wonderful. The service was tremendous. The mise en bouche was delightful, the scallop dinner delectable, the desserts were delicious, the cheese selection outstanding. This was possibly our best meal in France!!!

We come here whenever we are in Vaison-la-Romaine and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the prices really reasonable. The service is quick and friendly. Not much more to say...

We ate here in October and had a wonderful evening meal. The female waiter was very helpful and pleasant when I asked about a local fruit. She tried to find a translation on Google to explain the Physalis to me. The food was very good and it was nice to be in a restaurant where all the other patrons were... More

Our French friends, who live nearby and work in Vaison-la-Romaine, took us to La Baravelle on June 2. It was great. The service and food were fantastic. Because the restaurant is off the beaten path, I believe that's its secret. There were only locals there during our visit. The three course lunch, plus amuse bouche was everything you could imagine... More

My husband and I selected this restaurant from our Rick Steves' guide book and made reservations for 7:30 on a Tuesday evening in May. It's definitely off the beaten track and nothing special from the outside, but the restaurant itself has an appealing ambiance. My husband ordered the special menu for 24 euros (an eggplant starter, chicken, assorted cheeses and... More

We were with a party of eight diners, a situation to deter many kitchens in providing adequate and friendly service. Never the less , our excellent five course meal,which included two innovative amuse bouches, was a pleasure throughout. The busy atmosphere ,the attentive service ,the extensive menu, and the French ambiance gave us much satisfaction in this fine restaurant. Good... More
