According to the website "Le Jardin" is less formal... Sponsored by IKEA maybe ??? (Glass wear, cutlery etc...) Main dish "the tuna" was very nice, but spoiled by a dessert of the day being served in a plastic pot. Come on people, this is Clair de la Plume not Mc D's. Then to top it all, top money for a...

This is an outside venue that is run by the hotel and it is just a block away and the food is supplied by Bistro du Clair de Plume!! You can look up at the castle and over the lavander fields. The food was excellent and the setting fantastic!!!

It could be good, but depends on the day. No way to change. We had to insist hardly to get finally 2 pieces of salad. Other... More

We had lunch on a sunny day in September 2013 in the beautiful setting of this hotel's garden restaurant. I would recommend it to everyone who loves good French food and the habit of leisurely meals. The food was excellent, the menu varied and interesting and the service was good too. The desserts deserve special mention because they are outstanding.

Beautiful surroundings for a summer dinner outdoors. Chef really setting a high standard and competing well with Michelin starred rivals. Indoor dining looks inviting for winter period. We will be back. Good wine list.

The peaceful garden of Clair de la Plume in Grignan is a very special place for lunch. Sip chilled local Rose wine and enjoy the Provencal salad before climbing through the historic alleyways to visit the castle.

Thank John W

At 200m from the main house, our private Mediterranean garden proposes a natural pool, and an organic restaurant with a magnificent view onto the historic village and lavender fields. Weather permitting; the open air restaurant is open daily (from June till beginning of September, nonstop service from noon till 10.00pm). Simple, fresh food made from local products: salads, grilled fish, meat, vegetarian dish, assortment of iced cream and desserts… This is the second and informal summer restaurant of Le Clair de la Plume (hotel and gastronomic restaurant, open all year round, situated at 200 meters).
