I had high expectations before arriving at the bistrot after reading so many wonderful recommendations on this restaurant so it was going to be tough or so I believed. The waiters were very receptive and kind. The menu was prix fixe for lunch so they served salad or escargot, cassoulet, cheese and dessert. Everything was perfect!!! I would have never ordered cassoulet so it was a very nice surprise and delicious! Afterwards there was some music in the varanda, so the waiter asked us if we wanted to have our coffee there... Never heard of this no hurry attitude... I already miss this place...

We had lunch at Bistrot du Paradou during an early September 2017 trip - and it was the best meal we had in France. Just a superb atmosphere with simply but perfectly cooked, top-notch food (like Bresse chicken - the best chicken there is) and friendly, impeccable staff who made us feel welcome - the quintessential 2-hour French lunch on a terrace. We will drive out of our way to come here again the next time we're in France! Note for other Americans: the staff spoke excellent English, though they were kind enough to speak French with me too, despite my limited vocabulary. I don't get many opportunities to practice so this was appreciated!

Unless you read the reviews before, you don't expect to find such a wonderful place. It is an all inclusive menu (including wine), with two choices of appetizers and entres only, which change every day. Delicious food and Very friendly and efficient staff too.

This restaurant only offers a fixed menu and you can have as much as you want, ... and that also includes the wine. Wonderful experience I only experienced when in Italy a couple years ago. The team waiters are a bit exuberant, but that only completes the scene.

Keep in mind: one of the waiters told me they are not using the online reservation system, but they still could arrange me a table :)
