Excellent little family restaurant

Moustier can be a bit of a tourist trap but this little restaurant, just off the beaten track provided a lovely summer lunch. The menu was reassuringly short and the service excellent. I gad two under 6 years old and they catered for them well.

While showing around Gorges du Verdon to my parents, we stopped in Moustiers and found this nice place with an excellent ratio food quality/price. Short menu synonym of fresh food. Tried the pintade with mushroom and potatoes, excellent! Dessert was Moelleux aux mures with Sorbet framboises, exquisite! I definitely recommend and the owner very welcoming :)

My husband and I spent 2 nights in Moustiers Ste Marie and while wandering the village looking for a restaurant we happened upon La Cantine. We were attempting to decipher the menu when this nice young man stepped out and helped us. We took a quick look inside and decided to give it a try. Were we glad we did... More

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
