I had the lamb cutlet from the specials board today served with salad and French fries. The meat was very fatty. The salad had a nice dressing and the chocolate & fruit tart was very good. So a mixed bag really. Perhaps I would choose...More

We came to this little bistro twice, once just checking it out and the second because the pasta was so good the first time! My guy got the penne arrabiata, which was the best we'd both ever had; and my first meal there I got...More

Lunched here today and had a decent lunch. It's not fancy, but the food and service were decent and the cost is moderate. Recommended.

We read a lot of bad reviews about their service but our experience was the opposite! The staff were energetic and friendly and really did their best despite the busy crowd. Food was good and simple. I had steak and my husband has the chicken...More

In spite of the reviews, we liked its position in the middle of the town. The initial service was very fast but my Risotto St Jacques was too al denté for me and it contained 6-8 scallops, rice and the sauce - no other items...More

I'm surprised at some of the negative reviews, as our experiences here ( breakfast a couple of days, and dinner last night) were very positive. We dropped in for dinner without a reservation. Lovely location on a small square. Service was excellent. Food good. Chèvre...More

On the square, Cafe Gaby and Cafe l'Ormeau share space that is differentiated only by the color of the chairs. However, the service is night and day. Cafe Gaby's servers are amazing. Drinks and food arrive instantaneously. At l'Ormeau, you're likely to to be ignored...More

Great little café on the main square in Lourmarin, - heavingly busy as it was market day (Friday) but good service nevertheless. Excellent decaf coffees. Great for people watching. One toilet only, so there was a huge queue.
