You'll need to book far in advance, expect to pay a lot, and be prepared for a nearly three hour meal. But you will be well rewarded. We enjoyed entrees of zucchini blossoms stuffed with a fish brandade in a curry sauce, and a lobster risotto, a favorite of the meal. For mains an outstanding pigeon, duck breast, monkfish for the three of us. Hard to say which was best but I favored the pigeon. The desserts were equally delicious. We dined on he small terrace across a small street from the restaurant overlooking a valley. We will fondly remember our meal at La Closerie as one of he highlights of our time in the Luberon. The Michellin star is well deserved.

We managed to get a booking for lunch at Le Closerie for our group of eight and were greatly surprised when a special table was set for us in an alcove overlooking the kitchen. We were offered a set menu of : a delicious crab cake in a beautiful seafood bisque, seared swordfish on beautifully prepared vegetables and lastly a strawberry soup with lemon sorbet. The chef's wife acting as maitre, explained everything perfectly. The quality of the food was quite exceptional, the presentation perfect, the service without equal and an added bonus was being able to see it prepared and plated in the kitchen. What professionalism!
It was suggested that we have a Louis Turcan rose with the meal which complimented the first two courses perfectly. What a meal! We tried to get another booking before we moved on but alas, completely booked up,
La Closerie served one of the best meals any of us have ever had and for 26 euros must be one of the best values for money around. They certainly deserve their one Michelin star!!! A Bientot. MMLLGRB and MA.

For a michelin star experience, not up to hype. The amuse bouche a warm brown liquid excuse for a 'bisque à la homard', then a 'risotto' which was only mushy peas with a couple of asparagus on top. The main was more peas, a few carrots and two bored looking shrimps, dry and tasteless. Oh dear!

We loved this restaurant. The room is small and pleasant, the service personal, gracious and friendly and the food is excellent. We liked it so much we went back a second night. Order off the prix fixe, they carefully plan and balance the menu. The second time we ordered off the a la carte meu and the portions were (too) huge. Can't recommend it highly enough.

We were renting a house in Lourmarin and the owners recommended this restaurant as the best in the area. There is good food elsewhere yes, but La Closerie is exceptional. The six of us dined in the side room (only one table) that has a large window into the kitchen so that you can watch the hustle and bustle if you wish. It was very private and we were greeted by the chef and his wife Delphine, who speaks very good English. All the food is incredibly fresh tasting and inventive, artistically presented, and delicious. The main restaurant room would have been a totally different experience, but the food would have been just as wonderful. It's not inexpensive; a foodie experience. The pain perdue dessert is excellent, and always on the menu. Reservations a must!
