It has a wonderful terrace overlooking the lake . . The Menu is very restricted and never seems to alter but what they serve is good . I wish they would add more specials . Its under new management but they have added nothing to the menu Friendly service

Tried to book, but told to call back tomorrow as they were busy (had to check I understood his French correctly as I have never had that before).
Tried to ask for small portion of pasta as only steak hache on the childrens menu, but received full adult portion (may have been my French but had never had to try to hard to get small portions with previous owners and thought it was obvious as she is only 3, this meant she was a little intimidated by it, but we never received the small plate we had asked for). However my son thought the steak hachee was really good.
All the starters were good, but then the main course took ages to come out and we had to ask for them to serve us - I think they were waiting for the 3 yr old to finish her large pasta, but didn't think to ask. This meant the main courses appeared to have been left out waiting and then re-heated a little bit as it seemed a bit cold (especially in the middle) and dried out.
Oh and after the third time of asking, our wine finally came just after we asked for the main course to be served.
Ice cream was good, especially my son's strawberry concoction - so he thought the meal was great, but the rest of us were very disappointed that what previously had been such a great restaurant had been a let down.

The food here is good value and the staff are helpful and friendly. Fairly traditional provencal cooking with extras; set menu and special of the day. Good wine. Great atmosphere, and you are on the village place (if you want to play boule) which overlooks the Lac de St. Croix.

We had a salad for €12.50 that was a very sparingly plated, with tiny morsels of chicken placed at precise distances around the plate's perimeter, a single crouton, about a quarter of a tomato, etc. The flavours were good but this was an informal spot and we felt ripped off by the portions. You're paying for the view across the lake, though, which is utterly remarkable.

Came here for lunch on a trip to the Lac de St. Croix. New owners who were very keen to make sure everything was correct. Will be a hard act to follow as Bernard and Gudrun have run this place for years.
They have kept the same menu, a good idea, as it is superb.
We had Entrecôte aux herbes de Provence. All very nicely done and well presented. The setting is magnificent and we had a lovely sunny day so could sit on the terrace looking at the lac.
Good luck to the new owners. We will be back in the summer to see how they are getting on when the tourists arrive.
