We loved everything on the restaurant. The place, the food were just exquisite. But what we liked most was the atmosphere, very laid back and natural hospitality. Arnaud, Estelle and Dominique are such nice dudes (and very talented, by the way). We had a terrific time with the on the 2 nights we ate (and drank a lot, laughs) with... More

Wow! If you are staying on this town or happen to just stop over for lunch, do not think about it twice and visit this Gem. The menu may be limited, around 4 dishes but you are sure bound to have a culinary experience by a truly provencal woman who will be doing all the cooking for you. Just like... More

Driving through Moustier on the way to Nice, we stopped at this cute little cafe run by a friendly couple. Our meals were creative, delicious and a good value (22 E for three generous courses--I enjoyed pumpkin soup, pork tenderloin and tarte tartin with a wonderful salted butter caramel sauce). On the à la carte menu, the burgers and fresh-made... More

It was a last minute decision to have lunch in Moustiers when we finally managed to visit La Cantine. We have been living in the area for a few years and always wanted to try the place so this time we chose it for a birthday lunch. The lovely terrace, creatively placed along the old cobbled street leading along the... More

We had an excellent dinner at La Cantine the first night we were in Moustier Sainte-Marie during the third week of November. The service was very good and we had a great meal, it was so good that we went back the next night. Our expectations were very high however our second meal there did not compare with the first...

Very tiny but good food. We had the pork tenderloin medallions. They could have been cooked a little less but the Roquefort sauce was terrific.

This small restaurant and cozy has great food and service. The hamburger was very large and came with great fries. My husband had a salad that was good size and everything was very fresh. The house wine was very good.

We travelled as a group of 10 and stumbled upon this little restaurant by chance. We returned the next night we enjoyed it so much. Food is unpretentious, honest and tasty - just the way French bistro food should be I think. Run by a friendly young couple and all the better for it.
