In the weeks prior to our visit the restaurant went through some renovations and a menu change which made me hesitant but I decided to keep the booking after all. I am so glad I did!! We were two couples that evening. All of us have visited numerous starred restaurants around the world and take food and dining very seriously.... More

Where as we have been eating classic french food since we arrive this is what I would call modern french. Small plates, many flavors, creative presentation and foam. Not to mention a spectacular view. Every course exceeded expectation and was just incredible.

Took a detour from our route from Marseille to Montpellier to stop by to get lunch at this place - definitely worth it! Great view and fantastic food, in addition to a walk around in the very cozy town of Ventabren.

I came straight from the airport at marseille, it is only about 15 minutes drive. In a little town, park after driving through town center, and walk back to the restaurant. It has a great view on a wonderful terrace. The food was good and beautifully plated, especially the mackerel and the beef cappacio. Oh and the caramel desert was... More

Had a wonderful time at this restaurant starting with a lunch time wine discovery session with Jean-Marc; great experience and I highly recommend it. I must also admit that I was quite impressed with the new decor, a wonderful view on the beauty of the South of France. Spent the rest of the day with friends, which culminated with dinner... More

It's tucked away and hard to find and hard to park and worth the effort. We had an amazing lunch in a tiny restaurant. They fussed over us and, by now, have probably built the all-weather glassed in patio dining they told us about. If you are a fine dining person, don't miss this.

Wonderful service on top of an amazing seven course dinner - we loved every bite from the first to the last! The town is quaint and the views add to the attention they put into their special dinners. The The famous chocolate dessert was the best I've ever had!

On our monthly culinary discovery lunch outing we consulted the Michelin guide for a 1 star close by. No doubt we made the right choice In the picturesque village center with a view on the far away Mediterranean sea, we were well received and had an excellent lunch... The wine-list offers a great variety on splendid local and regional top... More

This is a tiny restaurant in a pretty little village in the hills above Velaux. The views are spectacular but as it was October, and we went for dinner not lunch, we were inside. But, really, we were there for the food which was amazing. Have thought about this restaurant a lot and really think it was the best meal... More

We read about this before we left Australia and booked a table for lunch as a special treat. It is a lovely little restauarant tucked into an ancient building in Ventabren a tiny hillside village outside Aix en Provence. The weather precluded lunch on the terrace but we werent disappointed.
