After a worrying start where aperitifs were slow to arrive, then everything improved. Very limited offerings, just 2 choices per course but the food was simple and very well prepared and served. Recommended.

We were in town on business and as always trying to find a good restaurant is a challenge. Le Bateleur made the best dining experience. The food was not only delicious it was varied. Service was awesome. Will be going back next trip!

Always amazing, can't wait to go back, a big +++ for the chocolate desert !!! The fish and the pork were also amazing. Also a great selection of wines all over France.

We had the pleasure of eating at Le Bateleur last week. We loved the ownership and staff. The decor is gorgeous. The menu is creative and inspired. The Mediterranean octopus ceviche is delicious. We will be back for sure.

This restaurant is a 'must visit' in vaison. Lovely provence food with a modern touch. A professional kook that understands his job, a nice and calm atmosphere with fine wines.

The food is very good but the wait between courses was far too long and the atmosphere - sitting on the "terrace" outside next to an irritating tap pouring water into some grotto thing - was distinctly lacking

It was a busy night in Vaison and this was not our first choice. Perhaps the fact that it was not fully booked was a clue. After an unenthusiastic welcome, our server's comment when I asked for wine recommendations was that she didn't drink wine!...More
