The locals cast sneers at our party of eight Americans, but the food was fabulous. The service was as lethargic as one would expect in Provence, but what can you expect from a diligent and gifted chef/owner working the kitchen by himself and one fellow working the tables? Let the citizens spoil their dinner with disdain while you enjoy an... More

We were staying in St Didier for 5 nights and selected this restaurant one evening. It has a beautiful outside eating area, however as it was a little cool we and all the other diners were inside the restaurant. The lady serving us was friendly enough, however the restaurant lacked atmosphere, (people spoke in hushed tones), and service did seem... More

Next to the "lavoir" of charming village Saint-Didier this nice and cosy restaurant serves really good fresh food and wines for a very reasonable price! You can sit outside on the terrace and enjoy a relaxed, quiet and tasty evening. Service is very good and people were friendly. Recommended!

Once again we had such super meals at this pretty restaurant. Our time in Vaucluse passed all to rapidly but we managed a few meals (both lunch and dinner) at this family run restaurant. Never disappointed. Will return .

I have dined in this friendly restaurant several times of the past years and always been happy with the food and wine. Both meat and fish dishes are tasty and nicely presented. In summer the garden/courtyard is very pleasant. Prices are a bit higher than neighbouring restaurants but well worth it. Recommended for romantic or business meals.

We had excellent meal. Very good local cuisine. Right degree of informality. You can choose to eat indoors or out. Even though the restaurant was busy the service was still very good and efficient. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting this area.

L'autre côté du Lavoir is a family run restaurant serving freshly cooked, tasty food . The setting is behind the village Lavoir nestling between lovely stone houses. We have been to this restaurant many times over 15 years and never been disappointed . Worth a visit .

Last time I was in St Didier it was 39 degrees in the Long Hot Summer of 2003 - and I was cycling! This time we almost had to cancel our reservation because it was bucketing down so hard in L'Isle sur la Sorgue we couldn't get to the car. The weather is not St Didier's fault though and it... More

In our wanderings through France we search for just this: a small, family-run restaurant, preferably with the kids running through occasionally, comfortable, great food. This is the classic pattern of husband in the kitchen, wife tending up front, kids passing by on bicycles in the warm early evening in a beautiful little town. Inside has about 6 tables, outside is... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant, the first having been several years ago. The standard was still just as good as we had remembered it to be. It is run by the owner and his wife, they now have children so split the work! It is a small restaurant with the lovely Provençal stone walls, charmingly and simply... More

"L’Autre côté du lavoir" is located close by a public washing place from ancient times, and hosted in a secluded stone barn that was renovated to highlight its antique charm and exposed, high ceiling beams.Opened in 1996, the menu is always creative and all the dishes are made with fresh, seasonal and regional produce.The pleasant outdoors terrace, planted with trees and colorful flowers, along with the music from the stone fountain nearby, will confirm that you booked the right place to eat!Takeaway orders possible: foie gras, smoked salmon…homemade of course.
