La Fleur de Thym is one of those local restaurants that turn out consistently excellent food for a very reasonable price. The excellent rating for food has to do with value for money. The lunch menu is 15 Euros for entree, plat and dessert. Today the entree was grilled vegetables with saladl and pesto. Very nice. The plat was a very nicely done chicken on polenta with mushrooms and was very, very good. The dessert of strawberries and cream on puff pastry left a little bit to be desired in that it could have used more strawberries. For 15 euros it is an
incredible value.
The restaurant is crowded with locals and it is advisable to book in advance. There is also a very nice house wine and the coffee is excellent and inexpensive. All in all it was worth the hour drive to the restaurant and we will return on our next trip to France.

This smallish restaurant in a small village is a great find. The food is very tasty and they offer interesting choices. It's better than a good value, it's a bargain considering what you get.

We had a very good meal - two courses of the a la carte menu plus half bottle of very nice wine and a bottle of expensive Italian water for 67€ for two service compris. Good value in an expensive area. Charming staff.

We first had dinner at La Fleur de Thym in June 2009, shortly after the restaurant had opened. We enjoyed our dinner there so much that we looked forward to returning, which we did – in June 2011. Our first dinner at La Fleur de Thym in 2011 was so delicious that we returned again during our five-day stay in Les Baux / Maussane. The owners are a young couple. The hostess, wife of the chef, extends warm hospitality to all guests. The restaurant is small, but lovely – with light stone walls, vaulted ceilings, ambient lighting, and well appointed. The prix fixe, three-course menu has two options, one at 20 Euros and another at 30 Euros – both a fine value. For starters we enjoyed the beef carpaccio (best we have ever tasted) and a truly succulent local melon with Parma ham. Two mains that stood out were the cochon (pig) and the beef, both perfectly cooked, tender, and very tasty. Our third course consisted of cheese, a generous assortment of four delicious cheeses. If you find yourself in or close to Maussane, try Fleur de Thym – we think you will enjoy it!
