We chanced upon the Fabres' delightful restaurant on a busy Saturday, having glanced despairingly at various tourist trap menus along the way. The diligent and friendly team of waiters dealt efficiently with the mainly local clients, and the set lunch menu was good value.
Six months on, the salmon starter, squid risotto and moelleux au chocolat, also the beautiful terrasse on the banks of the Sorgue, remain memorable.

My husband and I had lunch here today after a successful shopping adventure at the Sunday morning flea market. We made lunch reservations for 1:00. When we got there at what we thought was 12:45, the waitress commented that we were very early- but pas de probléme. As it turns out, they changed the time back last night, so it was really only 11:45! Silly us!

We chose a table outside by the Sorgue, although there were vans from the flea market exhibitors blocking our view . The weather was perfect- in fact I got a little sunburned!

Our first course was the escargots in a crunchy pastry and a garlic butter sauce- we gave it a B. It could have been more garlicky for us, but the presentation was very beautiful and creative.

For our main course I got the grilled shrimp with a potato cake; Larry had the same dish, but with mashed regular and sweet potatoes. I can't eat cream or milk, so his versions of both dishes were probably a bit better than mine. We both gave this an A-.

The ambience was lovely, the service very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this place for either a good lunch or dinner when you are in this area!

Recommended to us by the owner of where we were staying, which was a disappointment too, so we should have known better! Years ago when we visited L'Isle -sur-la Sorgue it wasn't catering for just tourists who were expected to know nothing about the real french dishes and restaurant experience. I have to say the food was totally tasteless and you were treated with false smiles and assumption of general tourist ignorance! If you are looking for a real french evening don't go there!

Four of us has an excellent meal here, all had different dishes, all were perfect. The service was efficient and friendly, the table by the river was ideal on a warm evening - no insects! The rosé was excellent and inexpensive. Try here before you try any of the tourist traps on this side of the river.

We had a lovely dinner outside, adjacent to the water, Saturday night before the Sunday market. Both of us went with the prix fixe Menu des Saveurs but alternated the selections so that we had a taste of as much as possible. Every plate was terrific. Wine choices were excellent was well, though I thought a tad high on price. All that, and a warm September evening, made for a wonderful dining experience. .
