We visited this restaurant twice in the week that we were staying in Provence . The food is excellent and we had two wonderful 3 course lunches both days off the lunchtime menu at a very reasonable price. The staff were helpful and friendly and the variety of choices that you had to choose from at the serve yourself first... More

I have eaten at Cafe de la Gare many times over the years. However, on a couple of visits last year, while the food remained good, the service was poor. However, I have eaten there twice this month, and on both occasions, the food and service were excellent. The buffet starter remains excellent. On my last visit (Saturday July 16th),... More

First off, like the last reviewer, this used to be our favorite place to dine when we travelled to Provence. But since the new management came in, everything changed. The new "chic" décor replaced the rustic "Café de la Gare" interior, which really killed its soul. The service was lousy (as many previous reviewers pointed out). We waited long, long... More

This was a wonderful little cafe under the old management but it has been ruined. It has lost its soul! The buffet starter was very good but the main course, very greasy chicken and steak so tough you could hardly eat it, were awful. The choice of 6 store bought pies was boring, skimpy and not worth the calories. The... More

We have been regular customers of this popular lunchtime venue for 5 years. The lunchtime 'formule' was legendary; efficient, simple food served professionally and with good humour, After a change of ownership and makeover, the terrace has been extended and looks much smarter. However the prices have risen to reflect the improvements (from 13 euros including .25cl wine, to 18... More

I have visited Cafe de la Gare many times over the last 3 or 4 years. But my visit on Friday August 28th was a great disappointment. On my previous visit, about 6 weeks earlier, the service, carried out by two “girls” aged about 20, was great... very friendly and quick. Interestingly, a previous reviewer (July 9th) stated that “the... More

Like the previous reviewer I found the service somewhere between aggressive and rude. I liked the self-service selection of starters, but my duck main course was below average and came only with about 7 potatoes and one thin slice of orange. The dessert was a slice of mass-produced fruit pie; ok for €18. But that service was just down-right unacceptable.... More

Our party of four booked for midday on a Friday. The Cafe was busy - although more so on the terrace than inside as it was a beautiful day. We had been there a couple of times before the refurbishment, and thought the refit had turned what was an uniquely quirky place into something more manicured and commonplace. Our food... More

The restaurant was difficult to find as it is not in the city center of Bonnieux. Allow extra time and look closely for signs outside of town. We went there for a dinner birthday celebration. A bit pricey but good tasting, hot food that was well presented. Staff was attentive. Eating on the terrace is a plus. Great job!

Fresh mushrooms and a little steak with local everything. Magnifier. Quaint and small just like I like it. Quite a little stroll up to it.
