“delicious !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We had lunch on this special location, along the fast-flowing water. Price quality ratio is perfect. What a tasty amuze, a perfect trout. A delicious taste sensation on this tourist resort

“A second reason to visit this town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Great restaurant in an excellent location, where the river provides a cool and refreshing breeze for a comfortable lunch.
The food is very good. Simple and tasty, using local ingredients and sometimes with a little twist. Also children are welcome and will enjoy a vert tasty menu.

“Unexpected delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

So far everytime we visted Fontaine, Philip's was closed however this time we struck it lucky.
We had an excellent lunch on a hot day the water roaring past our table as the source was in full flow.
We had the menu of the day which suited us particularly well, all dishes were well presented and very tasty. The service excellent and without too much fuss.

i would highly recommend this restaurant, for dog lovers amongst us, they are welcome!

“You don't want to eat anywhere else ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Outstanding location away from the crowds and the pizzas, pancakes and souvenir shops; impeccably clean, including the bathrooms; fast, friendly and very professional service.
Philip has the fare that behooves a culture of sublimated love such as celebrated in Petrarca's poetry : classic, understated, flawless. We had variations on white and green asparagus, and fresh trout with a very relevant Florentine touch, followed by three desserts, of (Valrhona) chocolate, strawberries and crème brûlée; our choice of wine was a discrete but well-built white Lirac, and I respectfully indulged in a Marc de Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
It was our special luck that May 27th was the first sunny, windless and almost warm day in a long time. We couldnt have hoped for a more adequate coda to our visit to this magic place, the "closed valley" (Vaucluse).

“A very special location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

This is a spectacular year for the Fontaine - a very impressive flow from the source. Philip's location is spectacular, just a couple of hundred metres down from the source, with a terrace bordering the Sorgue. We could almost touch the river from our table.
Unfortunately, on the lunchtime we visited, the late May weather was unseasonably cool. The restaurant has some patio heaters but the one near us didn't work. Ah well, we survived!
Our 27 euro menu was very good value for money, with amuse-bouche, a goats' cheese risotto starter, a main course of trout and some other fish (not certain what), and desert of strawberry and raspberry in Chantilly cream, a small chocolate tart and a small crème brulee. A very pleasant lunch.
Service was good, though our waiter was rather OTT. I don't need to be told that everything is beautiful, or stopped from pouring my own wine so that he can do with more flourish.
Also, don't miss a visit to the men's loo. A pissoir with a view!
