We flew in to from Gatwick to Marseille that morning to start a long weekend in Provence as a treat for my mother in law. My organised other half had earmarked Fontaine de Vaucluse for lunch and a walk before heading on to our accommodation in the Luberon. So glad she did. It was the last weekend in October and...

Right on the river. Good value. Good service. We enjoyed our meal and the price was good (€14 for rump steak and fries etc) off the daily menu board.

Wow, the food, the view, the service, just terrific. One of the most pleasant and relaxing lunches I have had. Spectacular location enhanced by good food, staff and wine.

Quelle degout! Nous etions 6 personnes et tout le monde etait deçu. A part le cadre qui est joli , la nourriturre n'avait pas de gout. The only nice thing about this spot is the location by the bridge and the river. The seting is pleasant and promising. The menu sounds very exciting but none of the dishes we tasted... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here after a hot and busy morning climbing trees. We were starving and enjoyed a lovely salad and spaghetti. Also a bowl of chips which were crisp and delicious. Beautiful setting and friendly staff.

This is our favorite place here. Wonderfully situated on the gate of a water channel on the river Sorgue you can enjoy the water rushing by as you eat. Food is very good especially the salad gourmande and the trout. I've never had a bad meal out of the many I've eaten here.

Fontaine de Vaucluse has many restaurants to choose from but we decided that the setting of this restaurant was a winner. Our table was right on the river with the mountains as the backdrop. As we were eating mid afternoon we felt as if we were in our own private restaurant! The food was superb. Perfectly cooked steak for my... More

So many places to dine, it is a tough job to make a decision, but if you have a River running past it you think of Brad Pitt and everything tastes wonderful. This is a scenic setting with a complete 4 course menu which the French love down to desert at lunch.. large full of calorie deserts. Located in the... More

Easy restaurant nicely located at the waterside. Alles good dao? Food for few dollars. That's what this is. For us it made it because the kitchen is open from midi through 21.30 hours. Good wine, friendly service.
