Yes it's expensive but worth every penny! The service , food and total ambiance is outstanding . The whole meal took over 4 hours it was pure theatre !
Forget the people who moan on some of these reports they need to carry on eating at McDonald's !
It's all part of the package .
We had the chefs choice taster menu and wine package worth every penny.
If this is your hobby and you love food don't hesitate and visit .
We will return soon absolute heaven
Thanks

Wow, that was an experience. It was quite the drive to get there (!) but what a place! Very professional, and each course was such a culinary experience. Well worth the wait, and the drive, and the cost. Fun.

We came back after 6 years and once again, we was amazed about the food. We had the Big menu with the Wine menu. It was perfect.
The chef went to all tables and had a short chat with all guests. The service is prof. but relaxed. We like that.
We stayed over in the most relaxed and nice room with private terrasse and pool access very close. Its a very smal hotel.
We choose the breakfast in the pool house. But saw that several of the other guests had a wonderful roomservice at the private terrasse. We might take that next time.

Thank Fruberner

The joy that came with the anticipation to have lunch here bode well. 3 stars are worth a journey and indeed that is absolutely true with restaurant le vieux puits. The building and its premises are far from spectacular. Tucked away in the centre of Fontjoncouse we were welcomed to have a drink on the terrace wich is adjacent to the parking lot. The wine list is impressive but - oops - orangina and coke zero are not in the house. The dining room is large and the seating is great. The knife for the main dish sticks in the table (never saw that before). We took the lunch option and were positively surprised! Highlights? The glucose balloon filled with smoke that accompanied the oyster, the nice eadible box that contained prepared vegetables, the apple mesh that came with the mains.....
The service is - apart from a coffee spoon falling and a mussel shell dropping off the plate when picking it up - impecabble as you might expect from this type of restaurant.

Restaurants don't get and keep 3 Michelin stars for nothing. The overall experience was incredible with amazing food, attention to the smallest detail and a wonderful place to dine out. This is an experience of epic proportions - more than a meal - more than food. It is expensive but the overall cost has to be weighed against the superb level of service, the exquisite attention to the smallest detail and the high quality of the food. If you afford it go at least once - It is worth a very long trip. Fortunately I live quite close.
They also added a candle for a birthday...
