My husband and I had a gorgeous dinner at the Grande Provence Restaurant. We elected to have wine by the glass as recommended with each course of the menu--delicious.

I went with my mum for dinner. I usually don't go to fancy places as I prefer more rustic and casual restaurants, but I wanted to spoil my mother to a fine dinning experience. Food: great! It is a 5-7 (can't remember) course dinner, so...More

Location ... Right off the main road, but meanders into an oasis. Amenities ... Picturesque facility and ambiance. Statues, decorative plants etc for touristy photos, or just a leisurely self-tour to soak in the beauty... And a dedicated gallery of paintings, art, etc Staff ......More
