Pleasant dinner overlooking the country

Very happy when we walked in at 9pm and there were still a few people out on the terrace. It was a beautiful evening weather-wise and the atmosphere matched. The food and service was good, and the locals were happy to talk. Would go again.

No doubt the setting is peaceful and ingredients are fresh and tasty at best. Meals have been interesting. But too often as well average and without ambition. We're stopping by since years... always hoping the owner would have learned that kids are not just annoying but his future clients, that people like to be welcomed instead of reading what is...

Good and friendly service. I came across this restaurant by coincidence while exploring the countryside around Jouques. The setting is beautiful, it is nestled away in the Provencal hills. The starter was delicious but unfortunately I couldn't say the same about the main dish, a feaux filet, which was a complete disappointment. It was tough and had no flavor. They... More

This restaurant needs you to know about its presence. For those who have been able to find Jouques, the challenge remains to find this place which is about 2 km outside of the village; 500 meters are a non public carriage way. The restaurant's decor is a blend of pink and grey. Probably these colours are less intimidating when you... More

This restaurant is a little off the track and we'd never have discovered it if it wasn't for the advice of some locals. Our group of 7 was welcomed and seated outside on the lovely terrace. The terrace overlooks a lovely garden where children can play while the adults can relax. BTW: The restaurant is equally suited to couples too.... More

We arrived late to a full restaurant without reservation. The staff said they would be able to find us a table if we could wait half an hour which we were happy to do. We enjoyed an aperitif on the terraced area and were soon ushered in to our table. We enjoyed a wonderful Provence meal with huge portions served... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend of a friend who is living in this area. We were a group of 7 for dinner. This restaurant is in Jourques which is not exactly a big town. On arriving there, we were a bit surprised at the décor of the restaurant, Zebra stripes and magenta! The waitress was dressed... More

This was the highlight of our stay in Provence. We dined at Les Souvenirs de l'Avenir twice after it was recommended to us by our hotel just 5 minutes away. We chose from the 25 euro 3 course meal for dinner and were blown away by the fresh and deliciously cooked food. I don't think you can order badly from... More

We stumbled on this lovely little restaurant after following the orange signs from Jouques. Keen for a simple but delicious lunch, we sat on the sunny terrace and chose the 14.50 euro menu (only available at lunchtime). What a wonderful surprise as it included a delicious and fresh seafood salad served on a trendy slate tile, an octopus risotto and... More

My friend & I went to the village of Jouques for a vide grenier (street market). Having never been there before we had no idea what lay ahead of us for lunch. The village itself offers little that is inspiring - a few bars & a pizzeria. The local baker & fruit shop owner both suggested this restaurant, about 2kms... More
