We were visiting the Gotte nearby and searched Trip Advisor for a restaurant recommendation and La Pourpre et les Oliviers came up as being highly recommended. Upon arrival it looks like you are visiting a private house, with a small carpark cum driveway, and therefore...More

La Pourpre et les Oliviers was recommended by a good friend and did not disappoint. We arrived late lunchtime but were welcomed in and enjoyed an excellent lunch with a lovely bottle of wine. The restaurant is a little unprepossessing from the outside, but don't...More

Easily the best food we have had so far on our visit in the area. Exceptional food, beautiful presentation, lovely ambience. Even catered for our teenage son. Planning next visit already. Don't miss this.

Very good value for money. Several set menus to choose between. Wines are extra, of course, we chose a local red (half-bottle) to share. Chef Calixte really goes out of his way to ensure you're happy with the meal and the service.

If you're looking to eat in St. Jean de Fos, you can settle for one of the cafés in the main square - on a good day, the food won't be too bad, but on a bad day (for example, when they are busy) the...More

With family down from England for the holidays, and with most restaurants in the area closed, we were pleased to find that la Pourpre et les Oliviers was open and had a table for 6 available on Friday December 27th. The room was attractive and...More
