We did not stay at the hotel, only had lunch at the restaurant. Admittedly, we turned up on the late side of lunch and at first the owner told us he couldn't take us even though there appeared to be space. I wondered if he simply didn't like the looks of us. It was raining outside (I thought the sun always shIned in Provence!) and he recommended another restaurant down the hill after I asked for a recommendation, but we had just come from there, uninspired. I guess he took pity on us and accepted to allow us to stay for lunch, which was certainly appreciated. The views from the dining area are fabulous, even on a grayish day. We found the prices to be very high and the portions very small. For example, a shrimp starter with four shrimp in some sauce cost 19 Euros. The food was good but not particularly memorable, like some other fabulous meals we'd had in Provence. The service was efficient. The owner told us he has his sights on opening up a business with French wines in New York or California. I suppose with the prices he charges, he can afford to do so. Bonnieux is nice but an expensive place in general judging by the nearby boutiques that had scarves for several hundred dollars. There are so many other villages that I prefer.
