“wonderful vineyard location, good food”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

Have been to the gourmet restaurant before and liked it, though found it a bit too fussy. This time with the family and nieces the vineyard restaurant was ideal. Relaxing and beautiful location. Excellent service. The food is good, not great. The pork was a bit bland and overall the food could be a bit more creative and delicious. There are great plans for this location so no doubt they will keep improving all aspects.

“Fast food service......restaurant prices!”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 via mobile

Lovely surroundings,good food, good staff but.........FAST! 3 courses, bottle of wine and even though we asked for a break before dessert this was ignored after a few minutes and brought to us! In and out within the hour,100 euros paid and we were out! Went to complain about speed of meal, manager kept us waiting for appointment and then never showed. We left after 50 minute wait and gave our tel. No.......nothing.. Some people were through their meal in 50 minutes!!!! Do not plan on making this your special evening!!!!

“Fabulous surroundings and very enjoyable food - a great combination!”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

We are fortunate to live close by and think that Coquillade is a great addition for the region. In addition we have a business with gites and houses to rent and know that many of our clients have enjoyed meals in both the Gourmet restaurant, which now has a Michelin star and the Bistrot, which in high summer is set outside amongst the vines.
Last week we ate at the new Bistrot restaurant which has been built over the winter 2012/13 period.
It now boasts a large and impressive indoor dining room with huge glass doors, which can be opened up to maximise the view and open feeling or for the hotter nights the eating area in the vines remains.

The menu is priced at 34€ with 3 courses, or there is a la carte which is more expensive.
Wines from the vineyard Aureto are excellent and reasonably priced for the quality.
What makes Coquillade stand out is the surroundings, high up with amazing views over the vines and Luberon countryside, the staff are friendy and effecient and the whole environment exudes quality of a 'demeure prestige 5 star hotel'. We continue to enjoy and recommend to our clients. It really makes for a special evening (or lunch) out.

“We love it here!”
Reviewed 29 December 2012

We love the bistro dans les vignes for sunday lunches and evenings out with friends; it's a much more relaxed affair than the gourmet restaurant - the food is simpler, and main courses are cooked on the outside grill - but as with the gastronomique restaurant the food is delicious, the service friendly and efficient and the views beautiful. Highly recommended

“Rip off joint”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

Another rip off with poor food and arrogant service. No one should go there unless they want to large sums for poor food and bad service

Dear Madam,

We were very surprised to discover your comment on our traditional restaurant “ Le Bistrot” and its “Jardin dans les Vignes”.
We are sorry that neither the service of our team nor our complete menu at 32 € met your expectations.
