“Not returning”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Spoiled tuna was served to 3 of 8 in our group. All agreed it was way off - rotten and not edible. All 3 returned it but the chefs denied anything was wrong (and no concession was made when the bill came). That offset positives like good lamb and porc dishes. The setting seems nice at first but has a creepy edge if you look closer, like a bird cage with stuffed squirrel and duck. They encouraged us to sample broadly from the dessert buffet, but probably because the restaurant was empty - always a bad sign. There are many decent restaurants in the area.

“Best Meal of our trip to Provence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Not only the best meal of our trip, you would be hard pressed to find a better setting. The gardens, the patio and the building are gorgeous. Service could not have been finer and the food tasted even better than the presentation. The dessert table will knock your socks off.

Be sure to make a reservation or you'll miss out.

Tip: Get the stuffed zucchini flowers if available.

“Everything we were looking for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. The food is amazing- so beautifully presented and the flavours divine. The gardens and interior were so beautiful it was all that we had hoped for having read the review in the Lonley Planet guide. Come here if you are after a quintessential Provincal/French dining experience- you will not be disappointed.

“A disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

What a pity that the pleasant setting and enjoyable food was completely spoilt by waiters who forgot you and gave priority to guests arriving much later with the feeble excuse that they did not think you had finished an hour after serving you.
Tip: Ensure you have a table away from a corner so as to attract the waiter's attention.
