Sorry fred200099; I'm going to have to totally disagree with you about the food here. And, to those reading this review, I was at the restaurant with this other reviewer, though if you read that reviewer's take on the food, it sure seems as if we were not dining at the same place.
This is a small restaurant in the village of St-Saturnin-les-Apt. After a long day of travel, we just wanted to find a decent and easy meal, so we chose Le Restanque. We were seated at a nice outdoor table, and I will agree that the server seemed very congenial and helpful.
The food however, was another story. Most of our party ordered the pizza, and it was one of the worst pizzas I have ever had, and I've eaten plenty. My pizza was just a plain cheese. The crust was pale and rubbery, and obviously had not been cooked enough; even the cheese was not totally melted on the top. This restaurant does not seem to have a pizza oven. And, I understand I was in Provence, but the garlic was overwhelming!
The pizzas are quite large, and one is plenty to split between two people. I tried one piece and gave up; it was that bad. I fed a couple pieces to the resident dog that hangs out at the restaurant. He seemed to love it, so at least someone besides fred200099 was happy with the meal.
The company, wine and setting were extremely pleasant, so all was not lost, but I really cannot recommend this restaurant. I would never eat here again, and advise that you also take a pass.
