Lovely Provencal Flavours

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... read more

When I was planning our trip to Luberon area, I read all the reviews about local restaurants, and specially booked this one because it had very positive reviews. Maybe I expected too much, maybe I misunderstood the idea of semi-gourmet restaurant, so, it was a disappointment for me and my husband - the portions were small (and picturesque) like in... More

Even though we were a bit sceptic after having read some of the bad comments on tripadvisor, the restaurant has been a very positive surprise! If you only see the house from outside you wouldn't expect what a lovely place it is inside. The service was very very friendly and open (so the language barrier wasn't a real problem). The... More

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

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
