Fodor's Review

Summer-evening meals around the old fountain and boxwood-filled oil jars in the courtyard of the Hôtel d'Europe would be wonderful with filet de boeuf alone, but combine this romantic backdrop with stellar southern French cuisine and you have a special event. Give yourself over to one of the most renowned restaurants in the Vaucluse, complete with the best regional wines and an army of urbane servers—and hope for moonlight. The €37 lunch menu, coffee and parking included, quickly refuels before tackling the afternoon's touring.
