In fact, this is a restaurant and a hotel. My son became ill in the car when passing the village of Bonnieux and so I stopped at the first hotel I saw near the road. The staff was very helpfull and I was allowed to leave my sportscar in front of the door. After a shower, my son was feeling better again and we decided to have dinner. The accomodation for my 3 year old son was great, they had a kids chair. I told the waiter I loved Viognier wine coming from this village and he explained me his views and convinced me to try out another -biological- Viognier wine that the one I had in mind. It proved to be an excellent idea. The food was made with local ingredients, the chef told me and our menus mine with foie gras) were tasting excellent. The restaurant is not cheap, but worth the money. We had breakfast the next morning as well in the restaurant, good choice and nice views.
Tip: ask for the table at the window, you have a superb view over the village with the cobbled streets.
I'm going to return with my wife to this place next year. Recommended .

I have to say that I think the food at the Cesar is perhaps the most beautifully flavoured I've ever had. I had the duck followed by the fig tart. The duck was beautifully presented and superbly flavoured served on a long platter interspersed with figs. The flavours were exquisite.
Unfortunately there were no vegetables at all, no potatoes, no other veg at all!
The fig tart which followed with the violet mousse was equally exquisite.
However, as this was my evening meal I found this totally unfulfilling......I think it's the only time I've ever left a restaurant feeling really hungry......if you eat here as your main meal of the day it might be a good idea to have a snack before you dine there, or you could end up going to bed hungry as I did!

Que penser d'un tel avis?
Un client qui a faim, mais qui prend seulement plat dessert
qui commande un magret aux figues et qui s'étonne d'y trouver ........des figues???
Nous avons choisi de servir de la cuisine fine; pas de faire snack.
En outre, il trouve tout très bon mais donne une note sur cinq!!
Décidément impossible de contenter tout le monde.......

We had a truly lovely dining experience at Restaurant Cesar. The atmosphere is lovely and the view overlooking the village of Lacoste is beautiful. Although it was dark we saw the twinkling the lights. Our waiter was a young, friendly man who was more than happy to translate the menu for us. He made us feel welcome, making light conversation talking about the town of Bonnieux and we talked about our experiences so far in France and our lifestyle in the US. The food was delicious. We shared a salad that was excellent and we both had fish that was also prepared perfectly. I highly recommend Restaurant Cesar and if ever I am in Provence again I would return for another dinner!
