This is a restaurant that features truffles (in winter local). There is essentially one set menu and the price varies according to the truffle. We started with a fried egg yolk with truffle, a blini with truffle creme and chopped truffles that resembled caviar in a tin, potato with truffle sauce and truffles and them lamb with truffles. A bit... More

This is about our 5 th visit to Brunos and it is as good as usual. The starter of stuffed foie gras with artichoke and truffles followed by shoulder of lamb roasted for 5 hours with truffles and then the ice cream with truffles were all exceptional and up to the expected standard of Bruno. The staff are brilliant too,... More

For 12 years my hostess had been ecstatic about the place. the booking had been made months in advance: this was to be truffle heaven (as an habituee of Matis' atop the Gornergrat in St Moritz, I was accustomed to truffle heaven). However, what I did not expect was three amuse-bouche (each of which would have been a starter in... More

I still don't understand why most people swear by this restaurant! first of all the food was heavy (creme fraiche with EVERY course including desert, olive oil in almost all courses) and pretty simple (baked potato with cream and truffle for instance). No vegetables whatsoever, which makes the whole dinner pretty heavy. The service was also very bad, except for... More

There are people who enjoy this kind of restaurant, but for me it is way over the top. To many truffles, too much cream and brandy, followed by a truely magnificent bill. I live not far away but one meal chez Bruno was one too much for me.

So I had the amazing privilege of cooking with Chef Benjamin Bruno - head chef of Chez Bruno restaurant at Lorgues, France as part of a cooking class. Let's put aside just for a minute the actual fact that it was a cooking class and focus on the actual thing: the food. We had 5 absolutely AMAZING dishes! from the... More

We were invited by friends and we all took the menue degustation, because even if the price is €190 per person, we want to taste everything, and it was an absolute disaster. The food tasted like mass production, the sauces so heavy and just Creme double tasting, the steak not real good tasting, and the absolute horror, the truffle ,... More

Hello, I've been in Bruno for more than 17 years now, usually two times a year. I've been travelling all over the world, eating bad truffles in so many places! And except few little addresses in Italy for whites ones but where you get only fresh pastas in an ugly decor, BRUNO is the place for truffle lovers. The place... More
