Accompanied by wife and daughter-in-law, decided to give this restaurant a try on a mild day in March. Restaurant was very quiet - one festive table of 7 on a tasting menu and our table for three. We were not celebrating anything so it was just a “normal” lunch. I was a little wary of the €24 menu for 2... More

Probably best meal out of the year. Location is very good, amazing views and charming restaurant. Really welcoming knowledge staff on the informal side, which is usual in France, but just what I like. Lots of different flavours and textures on each plate of the tasting menu, which as a chef I can get annoyed by. Since I feel fussed... More

Me and a few french colleagues visiting this place for lunch last week. It was a brilliant setting - wide open areas, bright light, table-settings under trees and a whole view of the village below. It was absolutely breathtaking. While A la Carte was offered, we opted for the Chef's specialities for the day. The restaurant was quick to accommodate... More

It is worth the hunt to find the restaurant as the chef is a genius. No 'nouvelle cuisine' here. This is true 'Oldvelle' cooking. The quality is exceptional and you must have his signature dish the Lou Fassum. A three meat football in cabbage. Heavenly. The starters and deserts are all a treat but we go for the Lou Fassum....

Its a great place for romantic dining. Staff is very welcoming and understands clients well. The chef has even adapted the menu for my wife who is allergic to eggs. Staring from the kir violette as appetizer to the dessert, all the food was fresh and delicious. Dishes had balance in flavors and were well presented. Mostly the ingredients were... More

One of the best restaurants in the area. Beautifully prepared provencal food. Fabulous wines - especially the white called Palette. Service is discreet and professional. The view down towards the Mediterranean is stunningly beautiful. One of my favourite restaurants.
