The evening had been booked some weeks in advance and was to be one of the highlights of our holiday. We were not disappointed. The setting has to be one of the most magnificent that we have eaten at for some time and the staff were attentive and knowledgeable. We all ate from the 49 euro menu and it was... More

Visited L'Escourtin as we were attracted by a varied menu. We were not disappointed which may be a cliché however it was a very pleasurable experience on a mid-=week night under the stars on a rather nice terrace. The Euro49 menu was superb with lamb rack and lobster tails or fois gras on offer. I found some reasonably priced Provence... More

This restaurant had good reviews so we had to try it. We booked for Sunday lunch, and when I booked, I had assumed it would be served out on the terrace; however on arrival it seems food is served inside. It was quite hot that day, so maybe that was wise, but the inside seating was a bit formal. Service... More

We have eaten many times at this restaurant and it has always been really good. Ambience is good both outside and inside, food is great and staff really nice and professional. Food is always beautiful, tasty and reasonably priced as well. Not all waiters have the best English but you can menu in English and always try to be helpful.... More

Midweek “Formule déjeuner” is really excellent value: €21.50, includes amuse-bouche, main course, dessert and a glass of wine + coffee. Other menus start to look quite pricey by comparison, but the standard of cooking, the setting and the service are all high quality. We visited a few years ago but everything was very formal (no shorts except around the pool,... More

Moulin de la Camandoule is a restaurant we happily visited several times a year until an unhappy experience (quality of service rather than food) around three years ago. Invited to go with a group we visited again recently and can say that both the food and the service are back to excellent.

On a crisp, clear autumn Provence day we went to Moulin de la Camandoule, L'Escourtin for a delicious lunch. There really is nothing to fault, food, wine and ambience are all fantastic. We had the formule, at €20.50 which really is a steal. I had trout on lemon risotto which was delicious, as was the apple crumble for dessert. It... More

We went there several time for lunch. They do a "formule" at 20,50 with main course, dessert an a glass of wine. To sum up : just what you expect from a good french restaurant. The cook, M. Choisy, surely knows what he does. Everything from start till end is tastefull. Service is outstanding. And the athmosphere on garden terrace...... More

Since 1999 when we moved to Fayence we have enjoyed this restaurant's steady progress from being an above average restaurant to now one of the best value-for-money restaurants in the east Var. On 26 April we had an excellent lunch. Their menu of the day included either a bouillabaisse or a piece of pan seared duck breast. Both dishes were... More

We had dinner here this evening, October 26th, which was a recommendation from our hotel at Terre Blanche. The overall experience was fantastic. Great setting, excellent service and delicious food. And very reasonably priced. Highly recommend.
