It's what Jenny does each year. To give me a day for myself, she searches for new 'islands' where we two can escape. For 2013, we traveled to l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, France. Now, this is not a new island for us. No. We reminisced, as our trip began, of the earlier days when we routinely traveled to these parts to discover treasures... More

We had an excellent meal from beginning to end. The quality of each dish was excellent and one could tell the chef was a passionate practitioner of gastronomy. The boullabaise (fish soup - specialty of the house!) was simply extraordinary. Service was really friendly and unfussy. The tables (in summer) were in a very pleasant terrace of a former grand...

We went to L'Oustau de L'Isle for lunch without knowing much about it. We found it a bit formal in a country-French way. Food was prepared in a interesting way and tasted good. Wine list was small, but I found a very good rose that I had not heard of before. Considering all the touristy restaurants in town, I think... More

Great experience. People usually reserve, we didn't but were seated because went there early for lunch. Tables in the terrace filled up quickly, mostly locals. The menu is simple and short placing emphasis on freshness. Food was very good and it is evident that they concentrate on few dishes that they can prepare well with local ingredients and great balance... More

After our visit to L'Isle sur la Sorgue we stopped by this restaurant following the Michelin guide 2013. We were early and the first ones in the resto. Tables were nicely prepared on the terrace. We tried the menu of 32 Euros with amuse bouches, first course, main course and dessert. The quality was good and valie for money was... More

I just had lunch in this nice restaurant in "magnifique" Isle sur la Sorgue/Provence. The couple who recently overtook the restaurant are very charming and welcoming, they do know their job and are passionate. The chef Fabrice Amar make a true and generous provençal cuisine (fantastic mushrooms for the fall, a, excellent guinea fowl)tasty fresh, and he even explains you... More

The food tries too hard and misses the mark terribly. Although not expensive, you wil feel you have wasted a meal.

We spent a month in France in several regions. our dinner at L'Oustau de L'Isle was was one the two best meals we had during the whole month. Extremely creative variations on standards; for example, the melon gazpacho with jambon rillettes was ambrosial. Everything was so good and the hostess, wife of the chef, could not have been nicer.

This is one of the recommended restaurants in this region, in gourmet style. But don't take the cheap main courses - our veal meat was greasy although initially recommended by the waiter. The entry however was very good, they have some innovative creations, and you may also be very satisfied. All courses are nicely presented. Possibly worth to ask for... More
