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 some establishments in the village were shut but when we spotted people sitting eating lunch in the sun on the little bridge that belonged to this restaurant we made a bee-line for it. Thankfully there was one vacant table left and on request we were guided to it.
There was an a la carte menu, set menu and some specials to plenty of choice. We opted for 2 different fish dishes and a lamb casserole dish. Each dish came with an interesting selection of accompaniments - some sort of curried polenta cake and some different veg, all quite tasty. My white fish was a little plain but my other half enjoyed her trout with almonds. We also each had a dessert and these were good. Overall the food was decent but it was the location made it a memorable lunch, with the water crashing over the weir just above us and ducks messing around in the water, plus lovely views downstream. We also enjoyed our walk up to the source of the Sorgue afterwards.
