We just enjoyed a thoroughly delicious meal at Le Platane. The roast St Marcellin cheese with honey and thyme was divine. The Hake with pesto mash was sublime. Finally the lavender crème brulee had a wonderful light lavender flavour. The staff were lovely. We couldn't...fault anything. We have recommended it to friends visiting Apt next week.More

The food was decent, but dont expect too many choices. i remember there were only 2-3 main courses to choose from. I had the fish which was well cooked but the service needs much improvement. The ladies were friendly. but one of them was quite...a mess, dropping cutlery all over and forgetting our coffee order. we waited 30 mins for our coffee. not so pleased esp it was a sunny day i would much prefer to spend my time walking outdoor than over an excessively long lunchMore

We were staying in Apt and ate here twice. First time out on the very nice terrasse (if you did not reserve, you must come at 19:00 on the spot to get a table) and second time inside which is (again like many of the...restaurants) a bit cramped and you cannot help overhear all conversation at the neighbouring tables). The owner and her daughter who run the restaurant both speak English and they are both cheerful and very friendly and helpful. The food was local, simple and very good; the choices of wine and recommendation we got were also very good. Altogether a pleasant experience which I would recommend.More

Simply wonderful experience. We were sitting on the patio, enjoying romantic setting with the small lights on. It is hidden on a side street in the old town, but well worth the visit. There is no English menu, but at least one of the staff...speaks some, so can help (or just use the translator ;)). The service was swift, unusually so for France, actually. Would come here again. Food is excellent, wine too. And don't be shy - order the full 3-course menu, you won't be disappointed! Just leave enough space for desert :).More

During a recent stay in Apt, we dined here and had a wonderful meal. In fact, it was so good we returned a second time. If going on the weekend, a reservation is recommended. Both times the dining room was full, however I should note...it was too chilly to eat outside on the large patio. The server spoke excellent English and was very attentive and enjoyable. Definitely worth a visit if you are in AptMore

We ate here both nights we stayed in Apt. The first night we ate in a lovely outdoor setting under grapevines & trees. The second night, weather didn't permit this, but the indoor seating is charming. The food was good country French, the service wonderful,...& good value for money.More

It seems the nicest restaurants have small but unique menu offerings. This delightful little restaurant followed this pattern. The daily fish choice was accompanied by fragrant quinoa and delicious roasted vegetables. The dessert tarte au citron creamy and fresh lemon. The vegetarian spinach lasagna was...delicately nutmeg spiced. Service was friendly and efficient in this family business. We left feeling totally satisfied, having spent a refreshing evening in a charming and secluded courtyard.More

Closed on Monday, but we returned the next evening for a lovely meal on the pretty terrace. The food was excellent, although the house carafe a little more expensive than usual. The service was friendly and helpful.

We were in Apt as part of a honeymoon trip and found this restaurant from TA reviews. It was delicious with good service and amazing food. We each had the three course menu (30 euro) and loved the gazpacho, lamb, and lavender créme brûlée the...best. The house wine was plentiful and inexpensive as well. Nothing beats the calm and pleasant atmosphere of the restaurant terrace either. We did reserve ahead, which was good because they definitely filled up for dinner. Don't miss this gem in Apt!More

Very nice to fix price menu for lunch €17 Family run and very good service. The pasta was excellent. The fish and cream sauce that went with it was superb.
