We hadn't visited since it opened a few years ago, so were eager to find out how it had developed since opening.We were not disappointed!Warm, Friendly, Gaullic welcome from the great host, Ju.The decking 'extension' is a fine asset, with its exotic bar, glamourous hostess, rustic charm & twinkly lighting.The Entree Specials we chose were lovely, if slightly pricey. Good value 'sharing' plates, which diners can 'pick at' whilst waiting for their meals (we had the tasty cheeses).Surprise of a delicious gratis 'veloute' of vegetables was a nice touch.Reasonably-priced main courses, including fish, with 5 plus choices.Varied selection of wines, at affordable prices, from France and Provence.Low-key, relaxed service, with staff who spoke good English.A sweet touch at the end was a free glass of one of Ju's tasty drink mixes.The Family and dog-friendly atmosphere made this a most pleasant evening.A superb asset to Molleges, and a worthy challenger to the over-hyped Eygalieres!

Our restaurant "Le Lezard Gourmand" will be happy to welcome you in La Bastide d'EygaliÃ¨res. We love working with fresh local and seasonal products and if possible organic too! The restaurant is open EVERY EVENING and SATURDAY and SUNDAY NOON with an a-la
Stayed near this hotel and ate at the restaurant one lunchtime and evening.Very peaceful and typically Provencal.Lunchtime menu excellent value.Service was amazing at lunchtime but a little slower when busy in the evening- but we were so relaxed we didn't mind waiting.Food very high quality and much better value than some of the other more expensive restaurants in Eygalieres

Our chef Fabien Taguemount, offers gourmet cuisine and generous sunny accents, prepared exclusively with fresh fruits and vegetables grown on the property in organic farming or supplied by small local producers. All our products are quality farm. We would
This is a small restaurant associated with an inn so may be hard to book as hotel guests get priority. It Is well worth it. The setting is charming, the service professional but not stuffy, and the food is to die for. We are vegetarians and as such, not very popular diners in France. We gave them advance notice and were delighted by our meal. The "amuse bouche" of truffled pumpkin soup lingers in the memory, as does the beautiful stuffed eggplant and root vegetables pulled from the nearby Potager. We were touched by the thoughtfulness care and beauty that went into the preparation of this meal.

Passing through the absolutely charming village of Eygalieres my friends and I decided to try dining at Brasserie Le Progress. Because of the somewhat isolated location of Eygalieres and the high end real estate in the area we were hoping to enjoy a quality French cooked meal in a quiet setting. The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice......right in the center of the small village of Eygelieres.... a great place to watch the world go by. Thatâs about all you will get if you have the dining experience we had. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted by a young man who proceeded to speak to us in French. When we quietly asked if he spoke English, he increased the volume of his voice and said. â What, you donât speak French ? What a shame, â. I noticed how the heads of other diners turned as he raised his voice to us and led us to our table. There was an uncomfortable feeling and tension in the air that remained throughout dinner. Not what we were looking for during our first night in Egyalieres after traveling 16 hours !!!Our waiter then provided us with menus which were in French and then left. My friends and I who are non French speaking , not surprisingly, had a few questions about the menu. When our waiter returned we first asked him if he could suggest a local red wine. He proceeded to laugh and say.... â of course, but It will be the most expensive bottle of wine on the menu â.... if I were not seated with my friends I would have gotten up and walked out.... this waiters sarcasm and rudeness was totally unacceptable and it only increased throughout the evening. My friends wife then proceeded to question the waiter about a dish on the menu....it was as though his command of English evaporated. I found it amazing that he could be so sarcastic in English on one hand and yet not understand a simple question like, how was a dish prepared ? Yes... I truly understand that likely this individuals command of the English language was not very good.... but why go out of your way to make patrons feel like it is their fault for not being able to read the menu.I then proceed to ask the waiter what on the menu he recommended..... here again he proceeded to laugh again and say.... â how would I know , you are the one who will be doing the eating. â. After hearing this comment I just pointed to the first thing on the menu knowing I wanted to leave ASAP......so entrecÃ´te and pom fritters it was.As is typical in France , the entrecÃ´te was not a thick cut of meat ....maybe 1\2 inch or less in thickness. The meat was very sinewy ...you were basically looking for pieces of digestible meat and cutting it away from the fat and sinew. The pom fritters were no better.... semi cold and not crisp.To add insult to injury, upon paying the bill... one of my friends was uncertain about the amount to leave for a gratuity.... I would have left nothing. But given their good nature my friend reached into their wallet and pulled out a bank note equal to 25% of the total bill !!! Clearly my friend had no idea what they were doing given how we all commented on the poor attitude of our waiter....and before I knew it the waiter grabbed the bill, said merci and quickly walked away. My friend was too embarrassed to ask the waiter to return and we subsequently left. Contrast the rudeness of this Le Progress waiter to the DELIGHFUL dining experience you will have at Paulettes (see my review) which is only a block away , up the street toward the church. At Paulettes I gave an extra gratuity of 15 Euros for superb food and service and our waitress asked if we wanted change from the 15 Euros which we didnât. She realized the tip was excessive and she was courteous to ask to make sure we did not make a mistake. I felt so bad for my friends who were visiting Europe for the first time in 25 years ...to be treated like âthis is beyond rude...This is not a place where non French speaking patrons are made to feel welcome. Add to this the poor service and below average food quality you have much better dining alternatives to choose from in Eygalieres and near by Saint Remy....again check out Paulettes.

Large and pleasant shady terraces under century-old Micocouliers, beautiful rooms with comfortable decoration. Seasonal cuisine, fresh, local, organic and natural products.
Starter: Tataki de boeuf: basically quick seared beef fillet with a soy honey style dressing (and very little of it) I expected it to be naturally tender and at a rested room temperature after searing.It was tender but had to pull out chewy sinew in 2 pieces and yes the beef had been seared, but not any time in the last few hours as it was VERY FRIDGE COLD. The carpaccio of beetroot, carrot ribbons , cucumber and courgette, ...fine, but lacking any seasoning.Main course: encornet (squid) with wok autumnal vegetables. These were a pile of the same starter carpaccio of vegetables as above, reheated probably in a microwave and had not seen a wok as described, nor were they autumnal, especially not the cucumber. Once again lacking seasoning and boring. Couldnât taste much curry pimente sauce. My friendâs starter of ravioli was good, but the main of Poule au Pot was so embarrassingly poor. A basic watery bone stock chicken broth, with a drumstick and part of a chicken wing, one piece of turnip and once again a couple of pieces of carrot ribbon with a piece of leek..Having been involved in the food and catering business for about 20 years, mostly patisserie, boulangerie, I recognise the cheats and shortcuts, but with sensibly used methods, they produce good results with the right chef, but donât ask me to pay good money for very lack lustre results.The desserts I cannot comment on fairly as the one I wanted had run out but the list was fairly bog standard, crÃ¨me caramel, forÃªt noir, tarte au citron meringue, ( from experience, easily taken out a freezer and thawed for the day) . They managed to find an almond fig cake for me, which was really good.Best points: lovely looking restaurant and the outside part is very attractive, otherwise I have no intention of coming back. This review is not from a tourist but someone living in Provence.

Chef HACHE's cuisine is punctuated by strong, bold and inspired markers, creating the setting for a culinary experience apart, where discovery is the key word. Seasonality, taste and creativity are the bases of his cuisine, which always comes back to the
Recently opened in the premises previously occupied by Chez Bru, this new chef is maintaining the high standards set by his predecessor. Carefully prepared and beautifully served by attentive staff, the food is innovative and delicious. The sommelier helped us choose well-matched wines which were reasonably priced. The shady courtyard at the back is an oasis of calm - perfect for a long lunch. Weâll visit again.

This intimate, family-run bistro never disappoints. Ambiance? Welcoming and peaceful, delightfully appointed by owner, Christine. Service? Always with a smile and gracious attention. Food? Offering a perfect blend of fine dining and more casual options, expertly prepared and plated by chef Alex and sous-chef, Veerle. We enjoy Aubergine each year we visit EygaliÃ¨res. If only time for one evening or mid-day dining, this restaurant should be the choice.

The restaurant Paulette is a family restaurant with traditional French cuisine updated to the taste of the day. Come and discover the true flavor of Provence in a coquettish setting and in a very warm atmosphere! The restaurant is open 7/7 from 11 a.m to
After spending the late afternoon and early evening touring the Lavender/Sunflower fields throughout the Valensole region, we arrived @ 10:00pm at Cafe Paulette.Despite the kitchen in the process of closing, the owner's graciously accommodated our party of 4 and served us a wonderful dinner of Veal/Sea Bass along with a local white wine on the recommendation of the owner's wife.She was kind enough to wait on us personally and saw to our every need. We enjoyed the food/service/ambiance so much, that we returned again the following night for another dinner on our last nite in Provence.

Firstly I should say that I ordered the melon salad and that was delicious (a huge portion also). Unfortunately my partners two courses were not so enjoyable; the courgette flowers were stuffed with cheese and drowned in a rich sauce that suppressed their delicate flavour, and the lamb chops were grisly and chewy. It is such a shame that we didn't both enjoy our meal here as we had such high hopes. Whilst I didn't try the rhum baba I have to say it looked delicious and so I would certainly consider returning here for the salad again and/or dessert. We would highly recommend the Cafe du Progres across the street for their food just be aware that it is more cafe-ish that restauranty over there.
