Food Scene
This is a very charming restaurant/terrace hidden up high in the hills, overlooking this region of Provence. Menu is crêpes, but full-meal, French version. Good drinks as well. The restaurant is nestled next to some old ruins and there is a lovely 2km walk loop, with a look-out tower with a full panorama - featuring the Alpilles mountains, the Luberon and the rest of glorious Provence. Sublime at sunset. Make a reservation: +33 (0)4 90 59 31 64 HOURS Wed12–10PM Thursday12–10PM Friday12–11PM Saturday12–11PM Sunday12–10PM Monday12–10PM NOTE: Closed TUESDAY
