During our last October two-week trip in Provence we had a fantastic lunch in Hostellerie le Chateau in Fontaine De Vaucluse. After a walk to the source of river Sorgue we came to the door of the restaurant rather late, 2-3 minutes before 2pm, when seating for lunch was supposed to be over. However, the hostess kindly allowed us in, but told, since the lunch was over, we had to order from a regular menu only. I am not certain what really happened that day - if this restaurant is always so good, or if it was our luck that the chef tired of cooking lunch specials and wanted to create something different as a great artist would make a grand finale. The truth must be said - we had an exceptionally good meal this day. A juicy trout with a crispy skin covered with a perfectly crunchy toasted almonds; mixed fish grill where each fish was perfectly cooked, tender salmon appetizer, mouthwatering fried frog legs, refreshing ice cream; a very good wine recommended by a hostess. Beautiful seating by the window with river view, swimming ducks; murmur of water; emerald color of waving seaweeds, sunlight after light drizzling rain. Combination of all these impressions and senses left us with magic, poetic and lasting memories.
