We recently visited this restaurant 2 nights in a row.
The first night, we were still enchanted by the beautiful setting,not so much by the very rude and unfriendly female waiter (owner?). We had the Aubergine Caviar and Foie Gras as appetizer. Both were nicely presented; however very heavy and we only finished half of the dish. As a main, we had the Steak and Cod; again nicely presented and good tasting. Next came the choice of a cheese platter (3 little pieces), followed by dessert: ice cream and lavender creme brulee. This choice menu costs Euro 33/person. Bread is served throughout the night.
The next night, we were looking forward to visiting the number 1 in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. However, unfortunately, the restaurant had its closing day (Wednesday) and we decided to give La Figuiere another try.
This time, we were pleasantly welcomed and attended to by 2 friendly male waiters and a delightful young female waiter. What a relieve not to have to look at the grumpy face of the day before!
We wanted to take things a bit lighter this time: we still opted for the Euro 33 menu, however we choose salad as an appetizer. Very nicely presented and large dish! After some bites, I discovered a hair in the salad. I looked a lot more closely at what I was eating and then saw something crawling between the leaves: a small green worm. I again did not finish the appetizer and appetite was gone for the night.
We will not return because of the unfriendly and unwelcoming service of the female waiter and of course because of the unpleasant surprises in the salad.
