The scenic drive alone is worth the 40 minute jaunt from Aix. Cucuron is a beautiful little village set in the Provencal vines. The food was absolutely perfect. My only regret is that I don't speak better French in order to converse with the restaurant's gregarious, story telling chef. My favourite restaurant experience in France.

We visited on a Friday night and, for a Michelin starred restaurant, the waiting staff were quite thin on the ground (2 for at least 16 covers upstairs). The food was all very good with interesting flavours. There is a choice of two menus and I asked to swap the dessert from one menu because I don't like pear. Unfortunately the other dessert arrived with the unmentioned bonus of... pear sorbet! It took a long time to get the bill so we ended up walking downstairs to pay. Think experience would have been better at a slightly less busy time.

In this tiny village we found this exquisite restaurant for lunch. We were very lucky to get a table as reservations are a 'must'. This is fine dining at it's best and is worth every Euro! The fixed menu had two choices. The entrees and dessert were lovely. Service was 'first class'. This one of the best lunches in all the Provence villages that we visited.

Unexpected bonus of Michelin star fine-dining in the small village of Cucuron which has a population of less than 2000. The restaurant is located at the main square with its distinctive long pond. Dinner was lovely and the wine recommended by the chef ( both white and the red ) were excellent. Although we enjoyed every dish individually we were numbed by the cumulative effect of their richness by the end of the meal. Perhaps a lighter lunch would have allowed us to appreciate the flavours of Chef Sapet's dishes even more. Definitely an experience not to be missed if you are in Cucuron but advisable to make reservations first.

The most memorable meal I had in Provence! The chef, Eric Sapet, was welcoming and accomodating. His restaurant is charming and the food exquisite. It is certainly worth the trip if you are traveling through the region. I will remember this meal for a long time to come.
