Fodor's Review

If wine and truffles are your thing, get thee to this temple of gastronomic bliss in the form of tuber melanosporum or aestivum, depending on the season. Fresh dishes at this lunch-only restaurant exalt the fungi-perfumed bounty of Provence. Start with a velvety pumpkin velouté with truffle butter followed by ravioli stuffed with succulent wild cêpes or a truffle-flecked omelet. Even the cheese course (truffled chèvre chaud) and desserts

(caramelized apple with black truffle) are shroomy. Prices are reasonable, with a two-course €19 lunch menu, and two three-course all-truffle menus for €45 or €57. Wines are a big deal here, too—the lovely 17th-century stone building serves as a school for oenephiles, a wine library, a museum, and a boutique where local wines can be purchased. Tastings and courses on wine and truffles are held daily; check online for details.
