So far everytime we visted Fontaine, Philip's was closed however this time we struck it lucky. We had an excellent lunch on a hot day the water roaring past our table as the source was in full flow. We had the menu of the day...More

This is a spectacular year for the Fontaine - a very impressive flow from the source. Philip's location is spectacular, just a couple of hundred metres down from the source, with a terrace bordering the Sorgue. We could almost touch the river from our table....More

World class view of the crystal clear water right next to your table. The scallop and truffle starter was delicious but the lamb main course was really under our expectation since there was a Michelin recommended sticker on the entrance of the restaurant. But the...More

Well, the location is top, directly at the water. But the food is without inspiration and too expensive. Quite strangely, we were the only guests for lunch, while the location would suggest that you need to reserve weeks in advance. The restaurant is split in...More

This was by far the best food we had during our stay in Provence. The staff were incredibly friendly, the location is amazing and each course was mouthwatering.

This was by far the best meal we had in our two-week visit to Provence. We sat by the water, which was cool and beautiful. Our food was spectacular, and so beautifully presented that we took pictures of it. The asparagus appetizer is to die...More

Usually the 'Rick Steve' recommendations come with a mass of Amercian tourists but saw the restaurant on the way down to the (less than spectacular) source of the river. Arrived for lunch when it opened at 12.00 and took a table by the water. It...More
