We came for dinner and ordered only main dish, although received some epitaizer as well. Everything was tasty, very nicely served, elegant. Service was excellent and very professional. Although it may have been un polite, we looked at other tables. Every one received very attractive dishes, and all were satisfied. We loved the restaurant.

What a wonderful evening.It was just a chance booking during a 3 day stay. It was both the delightful hostess and the ambience of this small restaurant , as well as the outstanding food with quality wines. Then to top it off the clearly passionate Chef came out to chat to us all .

This is one of our favourite restaurants in the region. Always a gastronomic delight to dine here. Be patient if you choose to dine here and remember good things are worth waiting for. Preparation can be long but believe me the quality is outstanding. Both the ingredients and presentation. Order a good wine, relax and enjoy... Well worth a visit... More

From the city of Grignan which is a jewel, to the restaurant's dining area which is small and all so welcoming and authentic. Like the owners Herve and Valeir. Le Poeme is an excellent restaurant.

We had been to Le Poeme in 2001 or 2002 and were happy to find it still exists, even though it has relocated to a new address in the old part of Grignan. The dishes remain as good as we remembered them. We ordered the menu at Euro 45, and it is very good value for money indeed. My wife's... More

We have been to this restaurant before, and now, several years later, it was as good as we remembered. It is quite small and has a friendly cosy atmosphere. We chose the 3-course menu for €32. It was delicious! At the end of the night the chef himself came to our table to ask if we had enjoyed our meal.

A wonderfully quaint, old fashioned little restaurant in the souterrain, with traditional French cuisine and great wines from the region, that's what we found in Le Poème. And that's why we had two dinners there in the week we spent in Grignan. The first time we had the big Menu Promenade Gourmande. Pure delight, from the beginning to the end.... More

Husbond and wife run this very fine restaurant. We have been there many times, and everytime they have served tasty dishes with a lot of flavours. You can choose between 2 menus and they have a fine little winelist inclusive some of the best local producers.

I have put very good as the food was well cooked with good ingredients and served in a nice manner when it came! However we waited a very long time between courses, 40 minutes for the main course which slightly spoilt a birthday celebration. The restaurant was not full and I am not sure why it took so long.

We had lunch here today after visiting the chateau and it was a wonderful respite. The restaurant was lovely, small and quaint and only seating about twenty five diners. The service was gracious and attentive yet not pretentious. The food was fabulous. Everything was carefully prepared with fresh ingredients and every dish we had, from the amuse-bouche to the dessert... More
