La Bastide du Grand Tilleul is not only a restaurant with classical as well as innovative cuisine. It is also the place to be in the area for friendly afterworks (once a month on Friday evenings).

You enter through a hedged gate into the treed garden of an elegant town house and we lunched in shade under a large plain tree. Service attentive, bilingual(French & English) and helpful. We had one hors d'oeuvre of cold, thinly sliced, marinated & smoked beef beautifully decorated with rocket, carrot soaked in beetroot juice and another flavourful vegetable I didn't... More

We had dinner here under a big tree, perfect for a summer evening. The food is very good, from starters to meat and desserts.

We went out to La Bastide du Grand Tilleul for our first nice dinner out with our family on our 5-week trip.

The venue is great for a couple. Romantic, quiet but encouragingly busy.We went for an evening without the children. The food was good but not memorable. We didn't recognise anything on the wine list and as it was quite expensive we chose the cheapest on the menu and were not disappointed.

lovely restaurant, great to eat outside in the garden in good weather. The menu was fairly short with 3 of the four meat choices being beef, but my son was happy with his fish choice of sea bream. I really enjoyed the local luberon rose wine, service friendly when I visited with my family. warning be careful of the insects... More

This is one of those places that you hesitate to write a review about as you want to keep it a secret. We visit the area regularly and have eaten here twice.

A lovely experience and nice service. Great when you have warm weather. The menu is not extensive, but food is well cooked. Eat here for the relaxed atmosphere and outdoor ambience. Beware of the insects but well worth it!
