It's worth the trip for the view from this little hilltop restaurant in the tiny village of Blauvac - friendly multilingual waiters - simple but good menu ( one of us tried the steak which was delicious in stark contrast to the comment below!). We booked in early August and it was full.

This is a real find, a bit off the beaten track but well worth the trip. La Calade restaurant is in the centre of the village of Blauvac with tremendous views across the valley. Limited parking in the village but spaces on the side of the road leading up to the church. Very friendly staff and beautifully cooked food. Had... More

This restaurant was advised by the owner of our B&B in Mormoiron. And he was right! Superb view from the restaurant in Blauvac. And the food is the same: well prepared, superb taste and friendly service! Top price-quality!

A very small restaurant in a very small town. We were staying in a villa nearby and thought a short drive to dinner would be nice. Maybe having 8 diners was just too much for them to handle. Of the four steak dinners, none could be finished. One dinner sent his back for more cooking twice and none of the... More

Closed for a while due to illness of the Chef, its back a delightful small restaurant in a stunning spot overlooking the valley towards Venasque and Avignon in the far distance. The food on the prix fixe Euro39 menu's a stunning bargain, combined with great local only wine selection and attentive service its a real winner.

You'll probably drive to get here but it's a worthwhile journey through great scenery, finally climbing the hill into the little square where La Calade is situated. You'll be rewarded with the most spectacular Panoramic views from the restaurant and the most delightful food, all cooked superbly using the freshest in-season ingredients. My last visit I enjoyed superb braised shin... More

Went purposely to Blauvac as had read some interesting reviews on La Calade and we were not let down. The 55km drive from Saint Victor La Crosse worth every moment. The all inclusive 3 course lunch was as good as any we have had on our 4 weeks to date. Interesting combinations of market crops resulting in magnificent dishes. Additionally... More

I'm joining the majority, in expressing appreciation for this fine little restaurant. A warm, vibrant welcome from the staff, and a lovely dining room and terrace, with a panoramic view over the valley. Nothing revolutionary about the cuisine -- it's all very fresh, seasonal produce, allowed to speak for itself, with no interventionist or avant-garde tricking-up. Sauces are just right.... More

A genuinely wonderful find: perched on the edge of a hill in tiny Blauvac, with gorgeous views of Mont Ventoux and the surrounding countryside. An incredibly warm welcome, excellent, simple food and fantastic value for money. It was our first time but we'd undoubtedly return on our next Provence trip. A real pleasure.

Yet again a delicious, value for money menu du jour, leisurely consumed on the shady terrace whilst enjoying the panoramic views. A la prochâine :)
