“Good Provençal Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We have enjoyed the food in this restaurant for many years and this is the first time I have reviewed it. We had a fantastic meal on New Years Day and the other night was generally very good. The menu is very typical of the local area and in the summer includes lots of truffles and of course Foie Gras at all times.

They have added a new terrace for this summer so they can have more people sitting outside, I think that this is one of the better places to eat in Fayence, though they could do with one more member of staff.

“Utterly down the drain !”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2011

What used to be a good place to eat, has turned into a rip-off nightmare ...The as "Charolais" advertised tenderloin on the menu -€ 29.- !!!- is nothing but cheap milkcow (we've been in the food business for over 30 years), so full of nerves, that both my adult children couldn't eat it. Microwaved fish (my main course) just tastes crappy, besides the fact that it is totally dried out ! Three (3!!!) shrimp on the appetizer plate (€ 12.50 !)....and absolutely everything comes drenched with heavy cream. We didn't have the courage to take desert . As for the wine : Cote de Provence (white, Chateau Mauresse) just doesn't age well and clear brown is not the right colour...two out of three bottles were not drinkable (we were a party of six). Instead of going there get yourself a good bottle of Champagne and Tenderloin in the supermarket. Or make a donation to the charity of your choice,at least your money won't be wasted !

“Great little restaurant and our favourite in the village.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2011

This is a typical local restaurant of the very best standard. We have a house near Fayence and we eat here regularly as the menu is creative, the food is invariably precisely cooked and value is excellent. Look for the truffled dishes.

“make sure you are there before 8.15 pm”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2010

First time we we,nt to this place, they would not let bus in because it was 8.20pm....they told us one needs to be there at 8.15pm latest.... although their terrace was nearly empty. Strange behavior

Second time, I went at noon (sharp) and yes, the food was nice and the price was ok.

“Great restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2010

The location of the restaurant is on the top of the hill of Fayence. Walking through a small and charming street you encounter this lovely restaurant. I had a 'Plat du Jour'
