Wow wow wow..

I came here three years ago for lunch on my own and was blown away by the food and also the stunning hotel, it's grounds and the outdoor dining space.

This time I took my girlfriend for an evening meal and it was just as good, if not better. As it was a bit cold, we ate inside, which is a lovely intimate room.

We had starters of the fish tartare and the langoustines, amazing (the latter, picture attached).

For main courses we had the lamb and John Dory, the lamb was so tender and the fish so delicately cooked.

We both had the cheese to finish and a great selection of goats cheese, which was perfect as my girlfriend can't eat cows cheese.

The chef also did the rounds and saw each table, a lovely man.

Why this is only 1 Michelin star, I haven't a clue, it really should have 2.

Everything was simply perfect, from the reservation, the table, the setting, the attentive but not intrusive staff, the reception, and then the food. I had the lamb - you did not even require a knife it was so tender. Others had lobster with a bisque, fabulous. Desert was crafted by someone truly interested in their art.
Ridiculously expensive but if you want to know what real cuisine, real gastronomy, real service in a wonderful setting looks like, I would highly recommend.

We arrived in our slightly dirty camper van, knowing we were looking at a high class, quite pricey hotel/restaurant. The concierge arranged a table for us and parked the Van - didn't even blink!

So, the restaurant: lunchtime menu was around 65 euros per head, giving three courses and a number of amuse bouches etc between them. The selection was great - fish, meat and vegetarian, all looking really lovely as we watched them come out to others.

Loved the food - the scallops starter, beef main and chocolate dessert were particular favourites but all the dishes we had were excellent.

We sat outside, shaded under umbrellas in a beautiful garden setting; the waiting staff etc were attentive without being over bearing even ensuring any bottles were kept in the shade.

Recommended to us, and we pass on this recommendation - it's worth the money.

Thank Simon B

Мы были компанией из 6 человек на ужине и на следующий день на обеде. Мы взяли большое дегустационное меню каждый. Все было очень вкусно!!! Отличный сервис, замечательная подача блюд и уютный небольшой парк, все сделало вечер незабываемым.

We were there with 6 people company one day on a dinner, another day on lunch. We were taken the big dedustation menu each. Every dish we had were absolutely delicious! Smooth and smiling service. And, most remarkable of all, the setting: beautiful shade under a sail between trees on the courtyard of the bougainvillea covered vanilla façade of the bastide. Unique experience.

The first time we had dinner at La Bastide (about six years ago), we were awed: by the place itself with the stunning view, the food which was delicate and memorable, and the impeccable service.
This year though, we came home rather disappointed. The restaurant is still stunning with a fantastic view over the region. But apart from the fish tartare which was sublime, none of the dishes stood out. The quality is still very high and the food is good - just not outstanding any more. The same goes for the service - I stopped counting how many times we had to ask for bread or for our glasses to be refilled. The difference to previous years was very notable.
They were very helpful when we asked to move tables because of the cigar smoke from the table next to us. But I cannot understand why such a restaurant doesn't introduce a no-cigars-policy or asks guests to smoke their cigar in the far corner of the garden. This definitely spoiled our dinner... dommage....
