The staff is amazing and always looking to satisfy the customers, we're very impressed. Food was very good, but expected for a restaurant at this level, the best part was the desserts! Important to say that I don't eat sea food, so probably missed some good stuff from the menu, specially for a Provence restaurant. The view and ambience is... More

The restaurant and its food is absolutely stunningly good. Fabulous presentation and taste. An amazing cheese board and desserts. This is first class fine dining. Delicious. Really lovely, professional and fun staff.

Excellent and inspiring food, based on local produce and recipes, desserts very good as well. The staff are polite but don't make their presence noted when they shouldn't. Overall excellent restaurant and restaurateur - I'm not sure why they haven't got a 2nd star.

Excellent, excellent, excellent! We were lucky enough to visit this restaurant twice in one week! The first time, we stayed in the luxurious attached hotel and had a superb meal and a very pleasant evening stroll to our room. The chef, Xavier, greeted customers upon arrival which was a personal country touch. The second time, we brought a group of... More

A bit "stressfull" , like they was in a hurry to serve all the courses. GREAT food, and wine!! local food, but still innovative.

Basically all the dishes were excellent, except the main course (wrong balance vegetables / cochon) The deserts were totally tasteless... They should hire a real pastry chef. ++ Croissants and breads are so delicious, don't miss the breakfast.

Seated on the terrace overlooking the valley, the pool, and a full moon, the setting is magical. Lovely food, with stars in particular for Le Pistou (soup of the area),the fish, and a wonderful chocolate dessert. Service excellent by a staff that is clearly proud.

Ok, it is a 1 star, a great hotel location, a nice environment, but the food was just ok to good. We had chicken, but there was really nothing memorable about the food or presentation. Not bad, just not up to my expectations.

Despite the criticsim of the service from some other reviewers, we had no complaints, although as guests of the hotel, we were treated as royalty throughout our stay. The food was delicious, with great presentation (I'm no gourmand, however.) We were given a table on the terrace overlooking the pool with a terrific view of the rising moon and some... More

This was our third visit to this hotel/restaurant. Sadly the wind was howling so no-one could dine on the terrace with its spectacular view. On the first occasion when we were staying in the hotel we were beautifully looked after and had a sublime dining experience. On the second occasion we were completely ignored while other guests, who arrived after... More
