“A pleasant surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Chez Dominique was the only restaurant open in Fontaine de Vaucluse in early January when we were there. So naturally we were the only customers! But the food was extraordinarily good and the service attentive and friendly. It wasn't cheap - 70 euros for two - but that included a good bottle of rose, and both of us ate a starter and main course off the main menu rather than a special menu. There was so much food we couldn't finish it. Mum's starter was a huge bowl of pumpkin soup with a touch of truffle oil on top. My main course was large prawns and scallops - lots of them - in a rich, zingy sauce. A fabulous treat - would definitely go back.

“Very Happy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

We ate there our first night and the meal was excellent, including trout from the river running thru the town. We found the owner charming and very workable to change some things that came with the meals. Quality of the food was excellent. With that in mind we came back the next night and had another wonderful meal and great time, both nights eating on the balcony overlooking the small town square and fountain roofed by oak trees. Wish we were still there for dinner tonight-!

“Un Atmosfera Exccellenta”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

The location of our table was comfortable and had a view of the square below and the outdoor table on the terrace was perfect for the warm evening. The menu provided options and French tastes. Our friend from the area enjoyed the meal as did his companion from Germany. For my three friends from the States, the food was tasty. Would try another restaurant in Fontaine de Vaucluse the next visit.

“Very very disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

We visited here while staying at the superb Hotel de Poete in the village.Well could not have been more different, The choice was limited but we knew that, quality disappointing, but worse was the fact that as they had only 6 customers, they closed the front gates at 9 pm and were constantly checking to see if we had finished, including one of their children or grandchildren coming upstairs to peer in the room to see how the guests were doing. needless to say we left and left some wine when we became the last in the room. Another annoyance was that the deserts had no prices on the menu and were just read out - which is not what you would expect from a restaurant purporting to be even remotely professional.
