Our family recommended this restaurant and we're so pleased they did. It's unlikely we would have found it otherwise. The restaurant has wonderful views and it was a perfect place to have lunch. We had the set menu at 25 euros which was very good value for money. I had shellfish to start, duck for main and iced coffee for... More

Went twice this month. Will definitely go back! Had the Menu de jour 3 courses with wine and coffee for 15,5 euros. Frankly, one of the best meals I've had in France in 5 years. Real, down to earth, tasty food with a little touch. Great place to go for an outing in Jouques. We went up just a few... More

We went for lunch on Sunday. Mixed feelings as we read some pretty bad reviews on Tripadvisor. It is true that they dont take credit cards and it is a bit school like with messages in the loos about cleanliness and tap dripping and even a message about the internet. Anyway, the boss welcomed us nicely and let us choose... More

No doubt the setting is peaceful and ingredients are fresh and tasty at best. Meals have been interesting. But too often as well average and without ambition. We're stopping by since years... always hoping the owner would have learned that kids are not just annoying but his future clients, that people like to be welcomed instead of reading what is...

Good and friendly service. I came across this restaurant by coincidence while exploring the countryside around Jouques. The setting is beautiful, it is nestled away in the Provencal hills. The starter was delicious but unfortunately I couldn't say the same about the main dish, a feaux filet, which was a complete disappointment. It was tough and had no flavor. They... More

Very happy when we walked in at 9pm and there were still a few people out on the terrace. It was a beautiful evening weather-wise and the atmosphere matched. The food and service was good, and the locals were happy to talk. Would go again.

This restaurant needs you to know about its presence. For those who have been able to find Jouques, the challenge remains to find this place which is about 2 km outside of the village; 500 meters are a non public carriage way. The restaurant's decor is a blend of pink and grey. Probably these colours are less intimidating when you... More

This restaurant is a little off the track and we'd never have discovered it if it wasn't for the advice of some locals. Our group of 7 was welcomed and seated outside on the lovely terrace. The terrace overlooks a lovely garden where children can play while the adults can relax. BTW: The restaurant is equally suited to couples too.... More

We arrived late to a full restaurant without reservation. The staff said they would be able to find us a table if we could wait half an hour which we were happy to do. We enjoyed an aperitif on the terraced area and were soon ushered in to our table. We enjoyed a wonderful Provence meal with huge portions served... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend of a friend who is living in this area. We were a group of 7 for dinner. This restaurant is in Jourques which is not exactly a big town. On arriving there, we were a bit surprised at the décor of the restaurant, Zebra stripes and magenta! The waitress was dressed... More
