“So good, we went back three days later!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

My friends and I stayed in Carpentras for a week. We tried a few local restaurants, this being one of them and it was so good we decided to return for the last evening of our holiday as a 'treat'. The waiters were very friendly and we had excellent service. The food was very tasty, I had the same main course on both occasions although on the second visit I pushed the boat out and paid extra for the starter and the 'assiette' of desserts - one of each! The decor is very 'warm', fresh and clean.
I wouldn't hesitate on returning and thoroughly recommend it.

“Food ok, service brusque and unwelcoming, won't be back.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Food was average. Service was brusque and unwelcoming for us. Same waiter treated the french family beside us very differently. To cap the evenings experience off my chair collapsed underneath me. No word of apology or concern from the waiter. Many other restaurants to try, worst one overall in a week of eating out in the local area - don't plan to return here ever.

“Best in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

After having spent a few days in Carpentras, this turned out to be the best value for money in town: no overcharging for the wines, very good and welcoming service unlike the experience others seem to have had at all. We had the tartare de dorade and the oeufs de caille as starters, followed by the piccata de veau and the tête et langue de veau which were both excellent. The desserts were very good but less inspired or maybe we were just too spoiled by the first two courses?

“Pleasant lunch in a nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

The quality is good and constant from the starter to the dessert. The list of wines is short but of good quality/price ratio. Certainly one of the restaurants to go in Carpentras.

“A Surprise Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

We had a very pleasant lunchtime meal here, just outside the main square in Carpentras. Our table was a little close to a road but as it's in a pedestrianised zone we weren't disturbed too much.

I had the Plat du Jour - a fish dish with ginger, which was delicious and well cooked but surprisingly accompanied by roast herbes de provence encrusted potatoes, also delicious but a little surprising with an oriental style sauce.

My husband had a delightful fresh salad of chicken with a Parmesan crust.

No dessert but nice tea and coffee. Service was good and prompt, especially as we were a little late for lunch.
