Delicious, simple, no frills, local organic ingredients, lovely wines and lovely service. Don't be in a hurry-fast food is not good, good food is not fast. This is what we should all be looking for in a restaurant. We had oeuf parfait, local sausage with...lentilles, and boudin noir. What a great find!More

The waitress didn't want to assist us, she ignored us during more than 20 minutes, and later she asked two other waiters to tell us that we can't ask only for the dessert even when the chef said there is no problem. Later they said...they will take care of us when all the other clients left because they were very busy, even when they was doing absolutely nothing. I've visited many countries and never been treated like thatMore

Easily the best meal we had during our 8 days in Provence. Excellent service, passionate chef, amazing food! The amiable chef came out to speak to his guests and answer our questions about his food. He buys produce local and organic. We loved everything we...ordered on the menu. So creative, so wholesome, so delicious! Prices are reasonable given the high value and portions. Highly recommend a visit if you are in the neighbourhood!More

Fantastic place! We stumbled upon this place after having cycled 70km in oppressive heat. We stopped for lunch, and thought we would try the 19,50€ lunch menu. We had no idea of the treat in store for us. The waitress was lovely and welcoming, and...bought us a delicious amuse of deliciously fresh green hummus and toast. This was followed by the most amazing gazpacho of courgette and mint. On any day it would have been outstanding, but on a hot day it was a gift from the gods. Oliver the chef came out to talk to us, and his passion for flavour and love of his ingredients radiated from him. The balance of flavours in this subtle dish was incredible, it was so fresh and tasted of Provence. The dish made my husband emotional. Our expectations now high, we were not disappointed by our main of vegetarian lasagne, accompanied by a lentil side salad. I am a vegetarian, and this is by far the best meal I've had in France (and further afield). Again, the ingredients were superb and lovingly presented in a simple, yet subtle way. The meal was rounded off by a chocolate pot with accompanying fruits and coulis. The coulis was delicately flavoured with herbs of Provence that were a running motif throughout the meal. I cannot recommend this unassuming restaurant highly enough. It is well worth making a trip out of your way in summer or winter- Oliver the chef said that the seasonal menu reflects the vegetables available locally. The small staff were so wonderful and the whole experience was the highlight of our three week trip and we will definitely return. Thank you for a lovely meal!More

This magical place we found when our gps decided to show us beautiful landscapes of Mezel Mountains. Not only you feel in a fairy tale when you enter this lovely space but you are treated beautifully. I am not a big meat eater but I...was in France and wanted to try the lamb. I never, ever, had such a delicious lamb, neither when I was a big meat eater haha. I highly recommend this place, if you are in those beautiful mountains you MUST eat here. Is so lovely, homey, cozy and delicious!!More

Excellent and authentic provencal restaurant. They offer a creative range of dishes made from locally sourced ingredients. The staff care about what they do and take pride in showcasing their food. We first had an egg 'parfait' (a bit like a poached egg) in a...mushroom sauce. It was exceptional, definitely the table favourite. The mushrooms and truffles were picked at barcelonette, up the road! Main courses were great - pork and lamb were both moist and accompanied by well made sides. Desserts also really tasty, coulis with the pana cotta was exceptional as was the 'soyeux'.More

On a long drive home we decided to stop here and had an excellent meal. The food was delicious and freshly cooked with vegetarian choices which is not all that frequent in France (I'm a vegetarian in a French meat-eating family). A good choice of...wines and the coffee was great too. The service was friendly and attentive - definitely worth your visit!More

(Sorry it is in English, faster to write) Me and my 3 friends visited this restaurant on the 5th August. My friends cannot speak French, (I offered to translate) but the waiter made the effort to present the menu in English, which was lovely (I...did not catch his name but he spoke good English :) ). I ordered 'Le Grand Chevre', the dish was full of variety and presented beautifully. I don't usually write reviews but I had a great evening here, with great food and great service. Would highly recommend.More

Had a really very enjoyable meal & afternoon. Rachel & Olivier made us very welcome. The vin rouge went down well and we had a great laugh. Local produce well chosen & fresh.
