“So glad we tried it out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

After walking through the lovely (albeit touristy) village of Fontaine de Vaucluse, we decided to head up the hill to see the sights. We stumbled by Restaurant Phillip and decided to stop in and have a beverage and were more than pleasantly surprised when we realized what a gem this place is!

The view is outstanding with patio tables overlooking the Sorgue/water, ducks and fish swimming by, lovely breeze in the forest setting. There are 2 areas to choose from as well as the indoor restaurant.

The server was very pleasant and we ended up ordering a few very tasty salads (penne with chicken, cherry tomatoes etc and another with fresh local mesclun mix, tomatoes, mozerella etc) and wine/beer. They also had a lovely menu for those looking for full course meals rather than the lighter fare we choose.

Not sure what the other places in the village offer but the view alone is worth the visit here so the tasty food we had was just a bonus!

We had lunch on this special location, along the fast-flowing water. Price quality ratio is perfect. What a tasty amuze, a perfect trout. A delicious taste sensation on this tourist resort

“A second reason to visit this town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013 via mobile

Great restaurant in an excellent location, where the river provides a cool and refreshing breeze for a comfortable lunch.
The food is very good. Simple and tasty, using local ingredients and sometimes with a little twist. Also children are welcome and will enjoy a vert tasty menu.

“Unexpected delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

So far everytime we visted Fontaine, Philip's was closed however this time we struck it lucky.
We had an excellent lunch on a hot day the water roaring past our table as the source was in full flow.
We had the menu of the day which suited us particularly well, all dishes were well presented and very tasty. The service excellent and without too much fuss.

i would highly recommend this restaurant, for dog lovers amongst us, they are welcome!

“A very special location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2013

This is a spectacular year for the Fontaine - a very impressive flow from the source. Philip's location is spectacular, just a couple of hundred metres down from the source, with a terrace bordering the Sorgue. We could almost touch the river from our table.
Unfortunately, on the lunchtime we visited, the late May weather was unseasonably cool. The restaurant has some patio heaters but the one near us didn't work. Ah well, we survived!
Our 27 euro menu was very good value for money, with amuse-bouche, a goats' cheese risotto starter, a main course of trout and some other fish (not certain what), and desert of strawberry and raspberry in Chantilly cream, a small chocolate tart and a small crème brulee. A very pleasant lunch.
Service was good, though our waiter was rather OTT. I don't need to be told that everything is beautiful, or stopped from pouring my own wine so that he can do with more flourish.
Also, don't miss a visit to the men's loo. A pissoir with a view!
