Lovely warm friendly welcome. It was Wednesday evening so not busy in this small Provençal town there was just one other table occupied, non the less the atmosphere was cozy and welcoming. Many restaurants in the local area aren't open in the evenings in Jan and Feb so we were in the delighted to find it open. The food was... More

Perfectly located on a square in the old walled city, a great spot to experience French cuisine without spending a fortune. A small space seating about 24 people allows for good service. Low ceilings lend a sense of intimacy. Better know some French to negotiate the menu, and reservations are a must for this popular spot. Good cocktails, fine wine... More

A warm and friendly restaurant. Interesting combinations of flavours with local wines. A quiet ambience of a grown up restaurant and the menu is augmented with chef's extras to get the meal started.

It just goes to show that fine dining is available where least expected. At least you wouldn't expect to find a meal at this level in a town of this size anywhere in the US. We took the tasting menu, and it was surprising, delicious, adventurous, and not in the least intimidating. The patronne was helpful and well-informed. The wine... More

Can't praise this little gem of a restaurant enough! Defy anyone to pack more flavour into food than the chef here who is a huge talent and should have at least two stars but instead makes his food accessible to all those lucky enough to discover this culinary diamond. Unmissable

Nestled in the small village of Pernes-les-Fontaine, we've been going to Au fil du Temps now for 3 years during our (return) travels to the area. Every year, we are remembered and greatly like part of the family. A family-run restaurant on the square (wife mans the front, husband in the kitchen, kids playing in the square), the eclectic decor... More

The is a very quaint restourant off the beaten path. There are only about 6-7 tables so you need a reservation. NO ONE here speaks English so bruch up on your basic French. The food is beyond fabulous and the service is totally French...they don't bother you at all. Great atmosphere.

A charming restaurant sitting in a village square that appears straight out of a novel by Marcel Pagnol. The cuisine is a whole leap above what one might have expected, with all the raw produce coming from the local area. In our week in Provence, eating out every night, this was our gastronomic highlight.

This is a small restaurant, with a small staff, but it is very high quality nevertheless. If you are looking for a nice long relaxing dinner, watching the world walk by and have no where important to be then this is the place for you. We were six people (4 adults and 2 foodie children) and we managed to try... More

It was too hot to eat outside, but inside is nice too (and air-conditioned). The cooking at this tiny restaurant is extraordinarily good. Just one example - an amuse bouche of cold tomato soup with very finely diced courgettes and cucumber, finished with a mousse of feta cheese: a wonderfully sprightly, refreshing and invigorating start to lunch. The 26 euro... More
