We were driving back to the North from the South and faced a huge traffic queue and decided to drive the more scenic route National. As usual, we turned to Tripadvisor on the mobile and were directed for lunch to this Auberge. It is wonderful. The pretty and tiny perched village is lovely. The restaurant is a great suprise in that the interior is approached by a small courtyard with overhang terrace. If the weather is good, this is ideal. We did not have enough time to do justice to the wine but had a wonderful steak - brought to the table before cooking and then served just as ordered. This is a must return location.

We arrived late and had not booked but the owner could not have been more accommodating, he even gave up his personal parking space in front of the restaurant so we could park. The service was charming and very professional and the food was exquisite, Art on a plate. We have been there twice now and intend to go back for any special occasion.

Two years previously we had visited this restaurant on the recommendation of Pont Royal Golf Hotel and had been more than imressed. This year we were determined to make the same pilgrimage but the meal was no more than average. Mallemort is a faceless village and, in order to savour its best cuisine - be prepared for a long hike. Parking is in a large square near the Pharmacy and then its walk,walk, walk uphill and uphill. The restaurant is difficult to find and so you need directions, flat shoes and a wrap as the wind closes in, even on summer evenings. Not much English is spoken, be prepared to wait and to pay quite a lot for what you get. All in all we were disappointed but, there is not too much in the area, so it may be the best to settle for in the area.

Le Patron is a great host and showman. The lamb was cooked to perfection and so tasty. The ambiance is Provencal rustic. What more can one wish for!
