My group had confit du canard - huge portions - and other selections, but the winner was my sis-in-law. She ordered the tasting menu and received 9 tapas sized plates. And all were fantastic. Give them a try. I think the name has changed to Chai [sic] Lila.

While using the laundromat across the road on a monday we found the town very quite given it was after noon. We found Grain de Sel just over the road and went in for a quick bite and a glass of wine.
The service was good and we enjoyed sharing a meal over some wine. The decor looked very nice and the bathroom was a delight.
Next time we are back in St Remy we will without doubt try dinner.

It was our first time visiting St Remy de Provence this June - and Le Grain de Sel restaurant is one of the reasons we will go back to this stunning little village. Even though we turned up late in the evening, we were not hurried or felt under pressure to leave when the restaurant quietened down. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, with a great little music selection setting the atmosphere. The large plates (I think I remember them being called) were fantastic and full of flavour, giving us a taste of little bit of everything. The fish was also particularly excellent and the wine suggestions perfect. It isn't on the cheap side, but a very happy contrast to some of the overpriced tourist traps we've encountered - 5 stars!. We'll certainly be going back here next year and recommend this lovely place to anyone passing nearby in the meantime.

This was without a doubt the weirdest meal I have ever had. It was a tasting menu served all at once on one plate. It had pâté, duck egg rolls, foie gras foam, gizzards in an apple and some pasta that was deep fried. None of it was bad, the people were great. It was just weird. Would I go back,no. Will I remember the meal, oh yeah.

Really enjoyed dinner here on a cool Spring night. The town was quiet owing to it being a Monday. We did a quick search on google and found this cute little restaurant. We had two of the special plates and the monkfish/seafood stew. Both were delicious. The wine was lovely as were the cocktails. Service was pleasant though a little slow; not really a problem since we weren't in a rush to get anywhere else. Overall a lovely evening and the nicest meal so far after three days in Provence.
