Eat well in a small Provencal town

The restaurant is quaint but comfortable, the staff attentive, the selection of the food as good as it proved to eat - what more is there to say? Ah, the wine is sublime, and very locally procured. We were a mixed group of two oldies, two younger and one child and we all much enjoyed our evening.

We were staying local and were travelling to Nice, Cannes, St Tropez, but this was actually one of the best restaurants that we visited. An imaginative and well thought out menu. The food was exceptional. If I could pick a fault it would be the slow service but then Trans is not exactly a bustling metropolis so this is not... More

Everything you expect when you come to France and eat at typical little French cafe, as a random turn off the main road. The food was bloody lovely!!

La Pagnol is in the main square of Trans en Provence. It does have fairly random evening opening hours so we only managed to eat here once during our trip, which was a real pity as the food was excellent. We ignored the a la carte and went for the recommendations, which initially looked quite pricey, but what you get... More

I ordered what I thought would be beautiful gambas (king prawns) to start, they appeared to have been prepared earlier and frozen, instead of being succulent, meaty and juicy, they were reduced to something I had to send back to the kitchen. I tried one to be brave (I like good food and will try anything) but it was too... More

Bordering the water, this restaurant offers traditional food at its best. The food was fresh and delicious. A must try is their planche of a variety of seafood which was overwhelming in quantity. The waitstaff was friendly but overworked at times.
