My wife, son & I stopped by this cafè for lunch after market day last Tuesday in Vaison La Romaine. Since it was a pleasant, sunny day, we opted for a seat on the covered terrace.

We enjoyed a pleasant lunch, with good service and reasonable prices. The waitress was pleasant and attentive to our needs. We all enjoyed a well prepared and presented lunch salad with a bottle of the local rosè, followed up with a yummy creme bruleè.

We were made to feel comfortable and welcome. This is a place I would definitely pay a return visit to.

It's been years since I've sent a entree back to the kitchen. But here, I did. I ordered a steak with the pre-fixe 18€ menu, got a badly done flank steak, completely rare, completely unchewable. I sent it back, ordered the lamb, and that was passable, although the chef simply plated it onto the vegetables I'd had with the steak.

Perhaps it was that it was a quiet Tuesday night during October, but . . .There are many other and better choices in this wonderful town.

We were hoping to go to another restaurant recommended to us but they were closed. We found this restaurant and had a promising menu. It's unfortunate that the food did not live up to it. I had tomato and avocado to start. What arrived was, and I can only describe it as 'slush' of under ripe avocado and over ripe tomatoes. The best part of the dish was the salad. To follow was a double lamb chop but not cooked to my liking despite being asked. To follow the dessert was a sponge with a poor apology for a strawberry topping which I suspect has never seen an actual strawberry. All this for €19. Service was exceptionally quick approx 45 minutes and was more thrown than served. The restaurant wasn't busy but the terrace was. The best part of the meal was the coffee. I will not be visiting again.

Worth a visit for their well-prepared and tasty lunch time menu. The main menu is a little more pricey.
