Fodor's Review

In an old bakery in a natural grotto deep in stone, lighted by candles and arty torchères, this restaurant would be memorable even without its stylishly presented Provençal cuisine. For more than 20 years chef Jean-Christophe Leche has been producing adventurous dishes, available à la carte or as a fixed menu. Try the thinly layered beetroot with feta cheese and walnut oil or veal braised with anis and creamy polenta, and check out the informed wine list. There's a shaded terrace, too, by the 17th-century village fountain.

a yearly highlight

the food is very good and sitting outside is delightful to watching the passing parade of tourists.
