You must go to La Petite Maison to bask in the sensual excellence of French food in all its glory. Sit on the leafy terrace in summer for a leisurely lunch that you will never forget. The staff are solicitous and the chef is a kind and friendly genius. Walk around the quaint village afterwards to feel transported back in... More

Arrived at Petite Maison having eaten there once before. I was disappointed to learn that I had just missed a cooking class focusing on lobster - which I would have attended for sure. Met by the owner/chef who showed me the output of the cooking class and then seated in the beautiful pergola covered garden with very attentive staff. The... More

It's a very lovely place and the good things we have seen and heard from the restaurant were really true, We made the choice... More

Fresh food, excellent service. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Demi bottle of wine from a full bottle, no problem. Well done lamb, no problem. Lovely location. Romantic setting.

Lunch: very nice open-air setting in a pictoresque village; food, wines, service, just perfect! very friendly chef who had time for a short chat although the restaurant was quite busy; if you happen to be in that area, do not miss it!

Four of us visited this lovely restaurant for lunch while staying nearby in Lourmarin. What a treat!! The restaurant is located in a beautiful old house, next to the stunning central pond and trees of Cucuron. With the benefit of having a beautiful sunny day, we were able to sit outside in a leafy courtyard. The set price menu was... More

Chef Eric is an incredibly jolly man who knows his craft very well. In his place its about eating great food, with a vein of creativity that is just enough to turn what... More
