I can predict that many will be negative because this place is far away from being fancy or "trendy". So lower your expectations and enjoy a great food in a place full of love from people who runs it. Isn't excellent food and friendly and warm service is why you go to restaurants? I had grilled beef and it was... More

Good regional fare, suitably priced nothing too fancy but all was to the point and decent. May be a good idea to make sure you have a table as the location is not too spacious (...they may have seating outside "in season")

Sylvie and François cooked us a fantastic meal when we ate there. It was a fixed menu for our large group of cyclists, you could tell it was cooked from the heart and with love. The duck was a stand out. They were great with 25 hungry people. We would eat there again. Thank you

We passed through Dignes after driving through the spectacular Gorges du Verdon. The proprietress was 'tres sympa' and welcoming - a far cry from the frosty types you can encounter in France. The food was well prepared and simply presented, a true reflection of everything you want from a provincial french restaurant - I was a chef in a former... More

My partner and I visited on a Wednesday night. The restaurant was full inside. Staff were very attentive, helpful and patient with our limited French. The menu pricing is clear and the costs reasonable. The meal was lovely and our steaks were cooked to our requirements. There was only one sitting on the night, so there was no feeling of... More

Popped in on the off chance they had a table available. They did. Very friendly and highly efficient service. Food was very nice-- fresh tasting and tasty. All at a reasonable prix fixe. Seemed to be popular with locals which is always a good sign. All in all it was a very pleasant evening. If ever in the town again... More

We booked this restaurant based on previous Trip Advisor reviews. Our train was late so we arrived late for our reservation. There was not a problem and we were made feel extremely welcome. The food and service was excellent and we all had one of the best meals on our entire trip. I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone... More

Not so many restaurants in this area of Digne. L'Olivier is worth visiting since a Chef is working in the kitchen; we tried the "collier d'agneau" which was pretty good; a good surprise withis wine served by the glass and coming from the gigondas area: fine, tasty and not so heavy as neighbouring wines of this Rhone region.

Yesterday evening we had a very good dinner at l'olivier. The staff was fantastic, the food very good, the wine ( a Bandol) recommendable, the service special. Overall we had a truly enjoyable evening. Highly recommended.
