“Great stop for lunch”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Restaurant isn't really in Bonnieux, being just off D900 west of Apt, but it's worth a trip out or a lunch stop (you can also visit the excellent Roman bridge nearby). We had quite a substantial menu du jour for lunch, with interesting and local dishes, including a very tasty stuffed volaille dish. Service was good too - we only realised Madam spoke good English as we were leaving, as she had patiently helped us do everything in French, including choosing local beer. Make a trip out to try this small and very genuine place.

“Excellent Food and Ambiance”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

My wife and I went to Restaurant Pont Julien for Saturday lunch. The day was a bit breezy, so we dined inside. The interior of the restaurant is tres charmant, the owner/hostess very welcoming, and the lunch was excellent, typical Provencal. The price was reasonable. We will return.

“Charming, delicious and reasonable”
Reviewed November 9, 2009

This is the kind of place you hope to find in Provence. Run by a charming couple, rustic but not rough, with nicely prepared food at fair prices. We happened upon it for the euro12.50 lunch to which we added a carafe of the house rose. The duck was perhaps a bit overdone but the sides and dessert were wonderful. Would definitely go back.

“A hidden diamond”
Reviewed October 20, 2009

Nothing fancy, but a very very good and honest cuisine, with only fresh products. Every holiday in Provence (already 10 years) we come here, and we never had any remark. The Crunchy goat cheese (Croustillant de chèvre) and the Leg of lamb in pastry (Gigot d'agneau en croûte) are incredible. Formula is simple : you pay one price. It's near the N100, but in a quet environment.
