This was our second time to this restaurant. We were here last year and had a similar experience so had to come back. This time we needed to tell everyone about it! We have dined throughout the Luberon and France and this little gem is tops on our very long list! Very deceiving when you first walk in. You are... More

We stayed in Cucuron a week, so had the opportunity to eat at many of the local restaurants, and this was by far the best. We liked it so much we returned the very next night! I honestly think some the bad reviews are a case of mistaken identity. For example, the folks complaining about the poor quality of the... More

There are 3 main restaurants in Cucuron. We chose this one because it was in the middle price range of the 3 and had a very imaginative looking menu. We were not disappointed in our choice. This restaurant may not have the street side location of the other 2, being located in large, old cellars, but it still had a... More

We had three lovely meals on our recent visit to this restaurant housed in a 14C oil press, particularly enjoying the foie-gras starter and lamb main. This is good, simple and tasty Provencal cuisine. The young chef owner (new in 2011) has good experience in some of the better local restaurants and he and his partner looked after us well.... More

Things were quiet on a Sunday night with only three tables taken. That fact and the surprising purple decor made us fear the worst. We need not have worried as the food was surprisingly good. We had hot foie gras in a sweet chestnut soup, a stew of sole with saffron, truffled pigeon, an assortment of cheeses and a pineapple... More

Not good. Not bad. Not tasty. Not unpleasant. Not cosy. Not romantic. Just blah. The menu was touristic with the usual suspects of offerings. The presentations were okay. Not sensational, but with some effort. Starter, Tomato Tarte, was the best course. Main, Veal Millefeuille, was okay, rather like a shwarma, a pile of thin sliced veal reheated and then drowned...

We came to this restaurant upon recommendation from our Host at the Guest House Un Patio en Luberon (see my separate review). The restaurant is located in a very cozy cellar, which gives you a very nice ambient. The service was extremely nice and friendly, even with their limited English (and our few words of French) we understood each other... More

It has been one of our greatest of pleasures to return to L'Horloge ,many times over the last five years, on each occasion the experience has been quite remarkable for service, quality of food, ambience and choice. We entertain a House Party nearby, several times a year and are delighted to introduce our friends to this restaurant. Without exception, everyone... More

My wife and I were in Cucuron and looked at the restaurants on the Etang and nothing inspired us. Trusty Michelin had a listing for Horloge with one knife/fork. Nice looking place with lots of atmosphere - down old stone stairs to a basement which was an old olive press. Old stone walls and nicely decorated. Very attentive service. We... More
