A wonderful start to our holiday in Provence.

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... read 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

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
