Le Donjon is "Maitre Restaurateur " and works only with fresh seasonal produce , cooked with the best knowledge and respecting the traditions and classic French cuisine dishes. Our deliberately reduced and varied menu is renewed every week. Everything is fresh and homemade on site. Our restaurant is a casual and welcoming place for lunch , dinner with family or friends (and romantic ... ) Tastes and flavors of our cuisine s 'inspirent many of our surrounding hills of Provence as the proximity of the Mediterranean and Italy. In the spirit of the French tradition , we try to combine the different bouquets and aromas, while leaving each product, the opportunity to express the plate, its flavor .
