We happened across this gem of a place while strolling through the village looking at all the fountains. It's a small dining room furnished in 1960s or 1970s faintly Scandanavian style with lovely touches like colour coordinated cushions on the benches. When we were there at lunchtime there was only one other table, a family of four, but I imagine it gets very busy busy so it would be worth booking to be sure of a table.
We chose the menu du marche for 29 euros mainly because the proprietor described it so beautifully! We were not disappointed. We started with an amuse bouche of fois gras mousse, with a little sliver of smoked fish and tiny pearls of green apple. That was followed by a deconstructed pain bagnet, which I can't do justification to here - you'll just have to go and try it! The main course was a superb piece of Carmargue bull, slow cooked with a crisp edge, but melted in the mouth. It came with macaroni and spinach, far more delicate than I can make it sound, and a piquant red pimento sauce with a hint of smokiness. Pudding was a cold rice pudding with apricot, vanilla, orange, raspberry and pistachio. It was stunning.
This is real food made from local ingredients, treated with respect and passion.
We didn't meet the chef, but his wife who runs front of house was charming. We would certainly return.

Incredible food at this trendy little restaurant run by a super lovely couple, him in the kitchen, her in the front of house.

In a trip filled with many wonderful meals the best dinner by far of our Provence vacation was at Au Fil du Temp. The chef is extraordinaryly inventive. We opted for the tasting menu with wine pairings -- this was a culinary adventure of the best kind. The food is light, clean, fresh and beautiful. The combinations are unexpected and brilliant, e.g., our soup course served in a shallow bowl, with each ingredient separately presented consisted of: shredded crab over red trout, cucumber gazpacho, yogurt with dill and for some crunchy texture toasted buckwheat. Every course was equally divine. The service is incomparable. Overall a perfect meal. Make your reservations ahead of time.

We had a wonderful 5 course menu for EUR 60pp. All dishes were well-composed and tasted very good. Real quality food and lovely town atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this place!
