“Best restaurant and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2012

Unfortunately we were eating here only one time. We are sad we found this familiar restaurant at the last time of our holidays. The owner is very friendly and helpful although in translating the menu into German or English. We will eat there definitely again when we are in the Provence again.

“The best value food in Fontvieille”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2012

We have eaten here on several occassions because you can either do the French thing and select the set menu or choose something as simple as an omelette, if you've eaten your fill over the previous few days. This makes it one of my wife's favourite choices in the village.
The food is fantastic and traditionally French. A belgian couple staying in the next village dined there so they could enjoy les cuisses de grenouilles (frogs' legs). All of the dishes are freshly prepared and very appetising. The pichet du vin is excellent value and easy drinking.
Serge, the patron is attentive and very helpful. He's also very busy as he runs front of house solo.
We look forward to seeing him again next time we visit Fontvieille

“Traditional and tasty French food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

Really good traditional French food! This was the best food that we ate whilst staying in Provence. The restaurant is small, intermate with a homely and welcoming atmosphere. The owner was also extremely welcoming and helpful in translating the menu. With our knowledge of French and his knowledge of English, we managed perfectly! The only thing we struggled with was remembering that the French eat earlier than what we're used to... Don't arrive too late or you'll be turned away!
