“Eat before you go”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

I have to say that I think the food at the Cesar is perhaps the most beautifully flavoured I've ever had. I had the duck followed by the fig tart. The duck was beautifully presented and superbly flavoured served on a long platter interspersed with figs. The flavours were exquisite.
Unfortunately there were no vegetables at all, no potatoes, no other veg at all!
The fig tart which followed with the violet mousse was equally exquisite.
However, as this was my evening meal I found this totally unfulfilling......I think it's the only time I've ever left a restaurant feeling really hungry......if you eat here as your main meal of the day it might be a good idea to have a snack before you dine there, or you could end up going to bed hungry as I did!

Que penser d'un tel avis?
Un client qui a faim, mais qui prend seulement plat dessert
qui commande un magret aux figues et qui s'étonne d'y trouver ........des figues???
Nous avons choisi de servir de la cuisine fine; pas de faire snack.
En outre, il trouve tout très bon mais donne une note sur cinq!!
Décidément impossible de contenter tout le monde.......

“Wonderful View, Great, Friendly Service!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We had a truly lovely dining experience at Restaurant Cesar. The atmosphere is lovely and the view overlooking the village of Lacoste is beautiful. Although it was dark we saw the twinkling the lights. Our waiter was a young, friendly man who was more than happy to translate the menu for us. He made us feel welcome, making light conversation talking about the town of Bonnieux and we talked about our experiences so far in France and our lifestyle in the US. The food was delicious. We shared a salad that was excellent and we both had fish that was also prepared perfectly. I highly recommend Restaurant Cesar and if ever I am in Provence again I would return for another dinner!

“Served by surf bum”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Our French waiter had obviously been taught English by an American and introduced himself with Whassup! He was amusing though.

Play du jour plus a dessert was 18 Euros but drinks added quite a lot to our bill. Food is quite good but the main reason to go is the view. Just make sure you're there early enough to get a window seat.
