This is a small but very elegant restaurant on the main square (hence its name). The former chef & still present owner is Baumaniere's current chef - a renown place in France. No wonder the food is so tasty and so well presented. Service is...More

I loved the atmosphere of this restaurant: it felt very cozy and comfortable, and you can tell a lot of people frequent this restaurant for their Sunday brunch. The food was just to die for and all looked like a work of art. I would...More

Sunday lunchtime, sitting in the shade in Maussane town square at the La Place restaurant. Fully booked, as you may expect for a popular venue. I enjoyed the plateau of 4 starters-a small example of each of the entrees, followed by the Dorade Sebaste. Both...More

Maussane-les-Alpilles is in my view the gastronomic capital of France. This small but charming bourgade de Provence counts some 2000 residents, but more than 20 restaurants - and you still better reserve your table during the summer season. We tried during our stay some of...More

We weren't lucky enough to get a outside table (at the main square) since we didn't have a reservation. Therefore we were seated indoors and selected the menu at EUR 38, one with the EUR 10 supplement for the fois-gras. Both starters, the fils-gras with...More

Food acceptable, tastefull but not very interesting and far to expensive. Everything except the grilled fisk was made in advance. Everything was in a hurry. No housewine only expensive bottles. Guest next to us dropped a fork on the flor and asked for a new...More
