This restaurant is well located in the heart of Les Baux-de-Provence, just beneath the walls of the Chateau des Baux. There is a charming, quiet outdoor terrace and nicely decorated indoor dining room. Come hungry! You will want to order desserts as Chef Pierre won the prize "Champion de France de Desserts" We ordered his prize winning dessert "Delice au Chocolat", a fabulous torte made with several layers of different chocolates from around the word,that was almost too pretty to eat. We also ordered a sampler which featured 7 of his desserts and WOW, each was better than the last. Very memorable was the Creme Brulee just scented with lavender. Going backwards, the duck entree had a perfectly balance cherry sauce and a cod-like fish topped with tomato and finely minced chorizo was subtlety flavored, Our appetizers, duck pate and goat cheese wrapped in filo and topped with honey were also delicious.
The memorable dining experience was matched by our meeting with Chef Heloise and Pierre. We were over one hour late for our reservation (!) and they graciously decided to seat us even though the terrace service was closed. Chef Heloise was serving due to a sick waiter and spent time explaining the dishes to us AND even some of the techniques used in preparing the dishes. Chef Pierre greeted us and we felt very special.
This was a very memorable meal and I highly recommend Cafe des Baux.
