“A restaurant to avoid”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011 via mobile

Our worst meal in our 3 weeks in Provence, and our most expensive.
the food tasted like it had been prepared long in advance and reheated. the wine list was overpriced, 3 to 4x the winery price. This is one to avoid.

“Beautiful setting-disappointing meal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2008

Having read so many glowing reviews about food at Les Geraniums we decided to treat ourselves to a meal during our holiday in Provence. The setting was fabulous and the staff very pleasant and friendly but the food.....what a disappointment. Maybe we were unlucky with the chef that night but this really was our worst meal of the holiday and at around 39 euros a head, the most expensive. Highlight of the meal was probably the "amuse bouche" of insipid, lukewarm melon puree. Starters were boring and lacking in flavour, main courses frankly unpleasant including my sea bream which tasted as tired as it looked and a courgette flower which was stuffed with something the local dog must have dug up! Puddings were passable but the whole experience was a real let down. We are not fussy or unadventurous in our eating habits but were expecting food similar to the fantastic "Le Mesclun" at Seguret. Sadly, Les Geraniums did not come close.
