The pricey way.

Le Jardin des sens. (www. jardindessens.com). Again the Pourcel brothers do everything together down to receiving a three Michelin stars  for this very chic restaurant in Montpellier. The dishes such as roast rabbit with ceps ravioli and a wonderful truffle aroma incorporate local produce and tradition.

La Bastide de Capelongue. Located in Bonnieux ( http://www.capelongue.com). A great dining experience and a pricey dinner. This Michelin two star in the hilltop town of Bonnieux delivers fancy food at fancy prices and in a fancy interior. Loved the grilled fish ( sea bream) with roasted garlic. It is executed so perfectly that you leave feeling that it was truly worth it.

Brasserie les deux garcons. Located in Aix en Provence. Cezanne, Picasso , Zola and Churchill were among the eclectic bunch of luminaries to have dined here. The decor is still 20th-century glory days with crisp white linen , gilded cherubs and painted ceilings. If you are looking for something not too expensive and simple, you have come to the right place.

Le Jardin de Manon. in Arles is the epitome of old Provence. it has been here since Roman time, it serves up some of the best of seasonal local cuisine. It is comfort food worth to try such as rack of lamb with tapenade or Saffron soup with mussels. I recommend it!.

Le Riad ( http://www.leriad.com) used to be an abbey and got converted into a fine restaurant. The simplicity lets the food speaks for itself – Tagines with pigeon or game or almonds, or lamb cutlets with spiced couscous, are quite delicious and perfect if you want something not Provencal for a change. The patisseries are quite delicious as well.

Chez Serge. in Carpentras. ( http://www.chez-serge.com) the setting is pretty interesting with its red chairs and white walls, makes you think of summer even if it is a different time of the year. The restaurant serves tasty dishes such as minced duck with honey and bulgur wheat make great comfort food.

The food is simple and very tasty.
