This small restaurant is located on a street behind the noisier square restaurants. As noted in other reviews, the service and food were tops. There is a nice wine list but you don't need to spend alot of $ in Europe on big names to get good wine. Unlike the USA!!

We liked everything, but remember our dessert most. It was a caramel cake, similar to 'chocolate lava cake', but with caramel instead of chocolate. Exquisite. We made an early reservation and enjoyed our time here.

Each course of our dinner at this small family-run restaurant was inventive and perfectly prepared. The couple who own it are quiet and friendly, and we could tell that they take great pride in providing an excellent dining experience.

This is a small restaurant, but great service and outstanding food. We each had an entrée and a main, plus a bottle of wine and all were excellent. We would eat here again. Come early or have a reservation as the place was full 20 minutes after opening....says something for their quality

Everything we ate here was very good. Around this area restaurants can be expensive(and the dollar is weak), but we found this place to be very reasonable and worth every penny. We paid 19 euro per person for 3 courses menu. The ambiance was outstanding as was the staff. It's on a street off the main square so not too... More

While staying in Vaison we walked by several times and made a point of visiting. The menu of the day is very good value and tasted good too! We would definitely visit again on a return trip to Vaison

This restaurant might not at first glance seem as anything special, but it was quite busy all the nights we came by it. We decided to give it a go, and we were pleasantly suprised. We all got the 3-course menu at 19 euroes, which is quite cheap. It had some very good dishes, and we enjoyed them all. More... More

Had a wonderful meal at this restaurant in Vaison. The food was excellent and the service very helpful and friendly. The restaurant filled up whilst we were there and there was a real buzz about the place. Would certainly go back if visiting the area again. Very good value.

A meal at 'La Lyriste' has been the highlight of our visit to Vaison for the past couple of years. The food is always good, often memorable. The service is friendly, without being intimidating and there is always a real buzz to the place. With the value offered by the €19 menu, small wonder that all the tables are full... More

We had originally hoped for a seating at another restaurant in the same street but they were fully booked. They recommended we tried La Lyriste and lucky for us we could get a table there. We didn't have any expectations since we hadn't read any reviews of the place. But we were in for a nice surprise. The options from... More
