We eat in many Michelin starred restaurants and found Tourrel to be exceptional. We ordered the full menu including the langoustine. The wine list is great and reasonable for what’s offered. The service was attentive without being intrusive. All in all a great experience.

Really lovely meal in beautiful surrounding on the rooftop terrace of this boutique hotel. No choice of menu on the rooftop, but the set, tasting menu was absolutely delicious. Fish and vegetable based, with great use of Provençal flavours. Relaxed, unstuffy atmosphere. Will definitely go...again!More

We had an absolutely perfect evening celebrating with friends at the Rooftop Restaurant. The views were wonderful. The staff were charming. The unique low tables and chairs were comfortable. And the wine and food were just... WOW! From the amuse bouches to the mignardises, every...mouthful of the set menu was simply delicious and beautifully cooked and presented. We were delighted when the young chef came to serve us the last couple of dishes herself and we could thank her in person. I wouldn't hesitate to return if I visit this beautiful town again.More

Wow, what an amazing experience. We ate here for dinner last week and it was absolutely amazing. The food, the service, everything was amazing. We brought our daughters (aged 10 and 12) and the chef very kindly offered them a simpler form of the menu,...but both girls wanted to try the full degustation menu. My eldest finished every course, they both loved the dishes. We’ve eaten in Michelin star restaurants before and sometimes they can be too over the top, where here each dish was not over complicated in the flavours on the plate, while still obviously so much work gone in to creating each dish. An amazing dining experience.More

I don't want to go into too much detail here, but the evening on the roof terrace and the cooking skills of the young chef, Jérémy Scalia, were an absolutely perfect combination. No exotic combinations, but a clear line with explosions of taste. A dream...menu. Really absolutely great. He explained to each guest in detail the individual courses that he personally served together with the hotel manager Olivier. Wonderfully discreet background music rounded off the package with the perfect wine to accompany the menu! In my eyes a perfect evening. I thought about adding photos, but I think that every guest should go there open-minded and be surprised. we should appreciate such owner-operated small hotels more. Sustainability is the key word here for the whole concept. WE LOVED IT.More

Fabulous evening on the roof terrace of this hotel. Views of Les Alpilles in one direction and the Luberon in another. Plus the church and rooftops. Menu degustation is currently all that is on offer but it is fantastic. Small number of covers as the...restaurant downstairs is closed due to COVID. The service and cooking were both faultless. Not cheap but a real treat. Enjoy.More

We have been coming to Saint Remy for practically 30 years. Dining has been ok but nearly always the comment was “ nice, but could have stayed at home”. Four years ago we visited the Hotel de Tourrel ( actually we wormed our way in...from the excellent wine shop annexed). We were greeted by the owner, a super professional and affable German who had fallen in love with the area and with his architect wife had created this jewel boutique hotel bang in the centre of the small town which had been hostage to lavender bags and soaps for several years. It may be coincidental but since their arrival all shops in Saint Remy seem to have been given a quality boost. Last tuesday we were on the waiting list for a table on their roof terrace, where a set menu is served in summer. We received a prompt call and off we went! I must admit I am not mad on set menus and am not much of a dessert eater but the young Michelin starred chef put together a dinner that was light, inventive, creative and excellent. The rooftop terrace is a joy: The unexpected view on the Alpilles, a light wind cooled the air, the swallows created patterns in the sky, the sun went down, the stars came up and all was perfection. The staff is impeccable. The (again) young maitre D, super professional, has impeccable English and a discerning taste and character, to be able to advise. All in all a great experience. We were there on holiday, but have a travel business. Often in our beloved France, in “ high end establishments” one is subjected to a certain aloofness and haughtiness which can be, at the least, off putting. The atmosphere at Tourrel is relaxing, and yet professional. The client is cuddled and respected, not treated as though at school! Fabulous. Highly recommendable.More

We're new yorkers - having traveled to Bangkok, Barcelona, San Francisco, LA, Miami, England, Amsterdam... this is one of my top five best restaurants I've been to in my life. It's tiny but wow does it pack a punch. Better than any spot we ate...in Paris. SUPERB! Insane wine list. Our chateauneuf du pape was out of this world. The degustation menu was unreal. Five courses of spectacular - one more surprising than the next. Every dish was art - carefully prepared and bursting with unique flavors. The staff were pleasant and professional, and very helpful with the wine. If you eat one place in St. Remy or truly within Provence, let this be it!More

We ordered the the 5 course degustation menu. With additoinal amuse bouche courses, really more like 7-8 courses. The food was excellent. Almost all of it was interesting, some of it challenging, but in a good way. Nothing esoteric or contrived. The service was spot...on, attentive, informative and gracious. Chef Jeremy came out at the end of the evening to say hello, which was a nice touch. It was not inexpensive, but we felt that it was worth the price, which is definitely something that is not always the case in high end dining.More

I booked a reservation about a month in advance based on previous reviews and the recent Michelin star attainment. My wife and I had high expectations and Restaurant de Tourrel did not disappoint. We were greeted at the door with a smile and escorted to...our table. A crisp glass of rosé recommend by Olivier followed and 3 different and wonderfully prepared amuse-bouche courses were to follow. The “pizza” on a spoon was a highlight. We ordered the 4 and 5 course signature prepared menu and each course was delightful and a true gastronomic experience. Every course was explained in detail by Olivier who was wonderful throughout the meal. The food and wine pairings were delicious! A true five star experience. We cannot wait to return for another phenomenal meal by Jérémy Scalia next time we are in our favorite Provence town of St Remy.More

My husband and I just returned from dinner at Restaurant de Tourrel. Even though the wait staff work there night after night, we were made to feel like the restaurant was open for tonight only, for us only, and for only us to enjoy. Truly...a dining experience unlike any other we have had. Each course of the fixed menu was an explosion of flavor, and the waiters explained them perfectly. When we asked for help choosing wines to pair with the meal, our waiter so kindly and easily asked us our comfortable price range and then made a wonderful suggestion. The prawns, the fish broth, the jellied tomato, the bull, the goat cheese cream - truly perfect. We are already dreaming of our return to Saint-Remy to dine at this restaurant again. Thank you to all who made our evening unforgettable!More

The food, wine, and experience here was all that you'd expect from a Michelin-star restaurant. The wait staff was courteous and professional. The food was amazing and creative. And the wine list was excellent. I also enjoyed that the atmosphere was not as stuffy as...many restaurants of this quality. The relaxed environment only added to the enjoyment. You should eat here if you have the chance.More
