We loved this restaurant last summer when we visited the area on a family holiday. The food was all served to a very high standards, wholesome, 'heavy' food was served at this restaurant, true french flavors. The service was good, efficient and friendly. The restaurant setting inside is somewhat different to your usual restaurant, very authentic, inviting. Only criticism: There... More

Husband and I have small appetites, so we shared a meal and walked away more than satisfied. Excellent food and great service.

The meals are huge. One is enough for two, so we shared. Went for two desserts instead of cheese & dessert. Their fricassée chicken was tender & tasty. Service was friendly and attentive to our choices. We'd definitely go back for more.

We visited this restaurant to celebrate an anniversary. The food was local and rather good. The service was just right and friendly. It remains one of my favourite haunts and if you can find a local parking space even better! Caution - they serve the special rotten cheese too.

I have visited this special restaurant many times over the years and it always a treat . It is the sort of small family run establishment that you always dream of finding in rural France but alas is now rare . The set menu at 29 € has a choice of 5 or 6 starters all delicious and home prepared... More

Visited here after seeing the reviews on Trip advisor. To be honest you may pass by when looking at the outside appearance as there are plastic chairs and plain plastic tables. The restaurant next door may look more classy but the food in this place is delicious. The menu is small but everything we had was really good, we particularly... More

This restaurant is simply amazing and one of the highlights of our honeymoon. All the courses my husband and I had were incredible and my main was the best dish I have ever eaten. The flavours were superb and the service was fantastic. If we ever return to Provence we will definitely have a visit to La Petite Fontaine in... More

In 2000 my wife and I went here for the first time. We have been back ever year since. Last July we had and it was simply amazing. In less than week we will be there again to see Etienne, his son and the rest of the staff that hasn't changed in years just like his menu. See you soon!!
