We had a delicious meal with my parents . Staff is very caring (parents are 86). The Food was delicious. The souris d'agneau (lamb) was delicious, Cooked for 7 Hours with a delicious sauce. Parents took beef with truffel sauce. Esually delicious and all reasonably priced.

We went for lunch based on reviews. Husband had slow roasted lamb in honey. Too much sauce made it sickly sweet and it was tough. I ordered salmon with chorizo in beure Blanc sauce with risotto. I received over cooked salmon with 4 tiny cubes of chorizo and a lump of plain rice . Hmmm. Service was friendly but really... More

We dropped in here for lunch today. We received a friendly greeting and set about perusing the menu. There didn't appear to be a set menu though there was a plat du jour which was Onglet. We chose two mains - Salmon with a butter and chorizo sauce and rice, and 7-hour roast lamb with local honey. Unfortunately the Salmon... More

We had a lovely dinner in the garden of this excellent little restaurant in Fontveille. The heritage tomatoes served with the best burrata I've ever had - and a huge piece of it at that! Wonderful, with a delicate pesto and multicoloured delicious tomatoes. Then the lamb, cooked for seven hours with a little Provençal honey- unbelievable! And served with... More

We loved this place!! We checked it out after seeing reviews on trip advisor and it lived up to and in fact exceeded the hype. Food was well presented and incredibly tasty. Good portion sizes. Staff were friendly and atmosphere was nice. Probably one of the best cheesecakes I have ever had (and I have had a lot). Would definitely... More

There are actually two reasons this place is rated so highly on Trip Advisor (which is how we found it). The first is that the food is excellent, the service is great, and the atmosphere is wonderfully relaxed. The second is that they actually encourage you to review them on Trip Advisor (which I would have done anyway, but the... More

We spent a great summer evening at Le Bel Ousteau. The food wasn't fancy but well prepared and from good ingredients. Diner is served in a lovely courtyard. We were lucky and even got live music. Definitely recommend a visit.
