Fodor's Expert Review Le Chalet Reynard
Opened in 1927, this is the spot for lunch and a bask in the sun on your way up the eastern slope of Mont Ventoux. The food is far beyond the merely acceptable, from simple dishes such as omelets (with truffles in season) to the traditional hearty tartiflette (baked dish of potatoes, cheese, and bacon from the Savoie region) or even spit-roasted pig for groups of 15 or more. Bikers, hikers, and car-trekkers alike gather at plank tables on the wooden deck or warm themselves in the chalet-style dining area.
