The young chef created a magnificent dinner in this lovely little restaurant just over the Roman bridge. The service, wine suggestions and chef's menu could not have been better. Don't miss this restaurant when visiting Provence!

A delightful dinner with five friends at this excellent restaurant. The food was delicious, prepared and presented beautifully. Sadly no gluten free bread which made it disappointing as my friends enjoyed what appeared to be excellent dark rolls. But the chef took the trouble to otherwise adjust the menu for me. Overall well worth the visit.

We were unecessarily concerned about the restricted choice. We all had the same meal and everyone really enjoyed it. Expensive but wonderful time

After a worrying start where aperitifs were slow to arrive, then everything improved. Very limited offerings, just 2 choices per course but the food was simple and very well prepared and served. Recommended.

We were in town on business and as always trying to find a good restaurant is a challenge. Le Bateleur made the best dining experience. The food was not only delicious it was varied. Service was awesome. Will be going back next trip!

I traveled with a small tour group through Provence hiking between small towns and wine tasting at wineries. We had a free night and the hotel staff recommended this restaurant. It was fabulous!! We had the attention of more than one wait staff (one was either the manager or the owner) and they were more than accommodating with our limited... More

Always amazing, can't wait to go back, a big +++ for the chocolate desert !!! The fish and the pork were also amazing. Also a great selection of wines all over France.

We had the pleasure of eating at Le Bateleur last week. We loved the ownership and staff. The decor is gorgeous. The menu is creative and inspired. The Mediterranean octopus ceviche is delicious. We will be back for sure.

Great meals and amazing experience. Service was personal with the owner (Adriana) and servers making sure we were familiar with what we were getting. We loved the menu passion, consisted in entree + fish + main plate + dessert. Put this on your must visit list!

This was a return visit to a restaurant which we have known for many years. The word "Bateleur" is French for "Juggler" and it seems that this place is indeed doing some juggling as it tries to find its niche in the restaurant scene in Vaison! It has a good location close to the river and a good understated modern... More

LeBateleur, Propriétaire at Le Bateleur, responded to this review

Mr SobermanUK, We are just a little restaurant in a beautiful and small Provençal village. We make the kitchen we love and we work really hard to make our clients happy. We love the people, the wine and life. Since 2014 we have our regular customers and we work really hard and good as all restaurants do it in Vaison.... More
