Unfortunately the restaurant was temporarily closed, but we really enjoyed having pre-dinner drinks here, and my husband enjoyed his first pastis here. The friendly locals gather here for drinks and they made sure my husband added just the right amount of water to his first Pastis. We saw them every night.

This restaurant had much to offer but was let down by meat which was full of gristle and given that barbecued meat is their theme was disappointing

We stopped here for refreshments after the Lourmarin market. A buzzing cafe that is great for people watching.

This is a no frills no fuss place, simple food done really well. I had a lamb steak that was perfectly cooked, very high quality meat clearly. Nice to see everything done on the grill in front of you as well. We only really went here as an fluke but I would definitely go again!

When we visited Lourmarin and wanted to grab a light lunch, we stumbled on this place - and what a marvelous experience it was. Not only did we find a cozy table near a fountain, but the owner immediately knew what we were looking for. The place is owned by an Italian/Corsican family and they offer a good range of... More

go for lunch and enjoy the meal prepared on an open fire: Corse-style. C'est rustique et très bon! One of the best lunch places in Lourmarin!

After several weeks wine tasting in France we were craving a martini and a manhattan and spotted Bombay Sapphire Gin and Makers Mark Bourbon so we thought we could get a drink. Not so easy. Long story short, they let my husband make our drinks and then charged us €61 for the two drinks! We did not stay to try... More

We arrived after our flight into Marseilles and were hungry and immediately stopped here for a late lunch. Three of us ordered Salad Nicoise, which were very good! The forth order was the Andoullie sausage, a rustic, lumpy looking thing which he enjoyed, even though he was expecting something like a Cajun type sausage. Very different. A nice shaded courtyard...

The outside doesn't look particularly impressive when compared to some other restaurants but the interior is a real gem. Be ready to be transported in time and feel like Hemingway in Paris in this cozy, comfortable caffé that offers great coffee and the usual French treats.
