This family run restaurant was one of our favorites during our trip to Provence. Being out of season, we had the pleasure of having the restaurant privately for our group of 12. The menu was pre-planned but adjustable should you have any dislikes. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals with many positive compliments. The restaurant is in a beautiful stone house with an entry through an outdoor patio/garden. The dessert bar offered many choices and great wine selections were plentiful. I give this restaurant an "Excellent" rating because of the entire experience being memorable, not only on food quality as the ambiance and service played a significant role in becoming a favorite for us.

Wonderful setting, especially in summer. Unfortunately the menu is more or less the same already for 15 years. No creativity, rather a trick. Aperitive (champagne with a touch of crème de peche) for EUR 15 per glass is outrageous for this place. The EUR 57 per person for the menu is not worth it at all. The freshness of soms of the products was doubtful. In short: disapointing.

From the moment you walk along the path and through the gate into the magical garden it is the most wonderful experience.

I loved every mouthful of delicious food made all the more delicious because of the amazing setting...

Fabulous

Beautiful setting, magnificent food and a wonderful waite staff. The Chef Elisabeth Bourgeois was delightful. The setting is a retrofited farm house with a wonderful outdoor area for eating, too cold in October to take advantage of this. They served a lamb eggroll, my interpretation, that was to die for and their trio of lamb dish, specially the lamb stew was magnificent. Unbelievable desert table. Everything is made there. Good selection of lical wines. Pricey but all eight of us loved it!

I suspect the people who think this is a great restaurant should get out more.

Fabulous setting.

Chronic service, 2 hours for our mains to arrive. Maitre d' took orders then disappeared for the rest of the evening leaving inadequately trained staff to cover for the obviously overstretched kitchen.

Really folks his place is decent gastro-pub food and as for the fuss about the puds... they were ok but no more. So don't go for the food, it's ordinary but fancied up a bit.

I reckon at 55 euros it represents decent value for 4 reasonable courses actually, wen you get them.

The test is; would we go back? Probably not and would encourage people to avoid it until they start to treat their customers with a little respect. This is a place cruising on a past reputation.
