Visited for a light Sunday lunch with the mem'sahib.
In truth, I wasn't expecting very much from a tiny restaurant in a very sleepy small town -- particularly as the place was empty when we arrived (though admittedly it was only just after one o'clock). Couldn't have been more wrong. The atmosphere was wecoming, as was Madame (who does speak English if you're having a lazy day with your French). The style of food was very Provençal -- strong in flavour, and unctuous. My aubergine with parmesan (the Provençal take on Melanzane alla Parmigiana) was seriously better than any other I've had in my sixty-odd years, and the mem'sahib's Provençal salad was delicious. The house wine (half litre of local rose) was very good of its type; the café gourmand was almost a full meal of various goodies (some clearly home cooked). -- And, the bill was very reasonable.

Worth a small detour!!

...and the atmosphere is great. I've never eaten in a converted garage before; this place is unique!

Having our second home in Carces, we like to use the local restaurants for a night out from time to time. There are a few in Carces and around. Do not hesitate to visit "L'oie qui boit" just above the Place Respolido in the village centre of Carces. You get a nice a la carte meny or the dish of the day, all with an aperitif, good local wines and a friendly atmosphere. On the night we enjoyed a "mise en bouche", lamb shanks and cafe gourmand and a local Cotes de Provence red at a very reasonable price. Well performed!!

This was really a supprise. We sit inside which was nicely designed.
The menu is oriented on the provence cuisine.
We ate two courses a la card. Everything was good prepared with fresh vegetables.
The service was friendly and calme.
