“Good, not great”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

I agree with the previous reviewer. The setting is lovely - both the vine-covered outdoor seating, and the magnificent view of Olargues across the river. The service was pleasant, but the two servers who were taking care of the entire restaurant seemed stretched to capacity. Two of us were there for lunch. Our two firsts -- gazpacho, and thin slices of magret de canard -- were good, if on the small side. For mains, the only choices were filet mignon, filet de boeuf, and salmon. We're not meat-eaters, so we ordered the salmon - but that's hardly a local dish, deep in Languedoc. Our third courses -- one dessert tray, one cheese tray -- turned out to be the best thing about the meal: high-quality and imaginative. On the whole, we enjoyed our lunches, and the restaurant is certainly a nice change of pace from the everyday French restaurant. But you' re paying a lot for the setting.

“Should have been so much better”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

After reading the reviews we couldn't wait to try this restaurant whilst on holiday. The location was stunning and the ambience one of the best I have experienced. However, what should have been a beautiful meal was let down by ok food and poor service. For the price I expected something exquisite but the food was quite bland. At the end of our meal half an hour went by during which we could not get anyone's attention to order some more drinks. Getting a bit fed up I went on to ask for the bill. After 2 requests for it we got it after a further 45 minutes. We wouldn't have minded if we could have enjoyed some further beverages. I appreciate the restaurant was busy but sitting around and being ignored for well over an hour is not acceptable. We shall not be returning.

“Good food, nice setting”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Need to book in advance in the summer months, as this place can get busy for dinner. I recommend the set menu with the 3 options. Food is excellent, service is quite attentive and doesn't take a long time before your plate is being served. Location is superb with an excellent view on the medieval bridge and town of Olargues.

“A great restaurant in a great setting”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

A great family run restaurant in a great setting, with a view of the Devil's bridge and the village of Olargues. Just below the area where the outside tables are the chefs grow most of their vegetables and spices. Take a day, climb the hill to the old tower through the winding streets of Olargues, bathe in the river and have dinner at Les Fleurs. It came reccommended and surpassed our expectations, great dishes, and the setting and view puts it all into place. Service was great, attentive and personal. Would go again and hopefully will.
