This was our third visit to Fontvieille, primarily to enjoy the extraordinary hospitality and creative cuisine afforded by Jean-Pierre, Catherine and their team. What began as a venture into the culinary unknown in 2009 has blossomed into a relationship that is much more than dining...More

The good: The food was excellent, especially the asparagus soup and risotto with shrimp. Cute courtyard seating as well. Unfortunately, the service,while friendly, was rushed. Unusual for a Provence restaurant.We had barely finished one course when another arrived.

Third visit in five years, actually. We returned to Mausane les Appilles after five years and Le Patio was better than ever. Most of us ordered from the 45 euro price fixe menu. Most of us are real foodies and we thought it was transformative,...More

Nice setting in the coutyard. Warm welcome. Food simple and pleasant but nothing to blow you away at the price. Wine list was very vanilla in an area of so may interesting wines. Would I go back ? Too many other options to try first.

Description
13 CATHERINE ET JEAN-PIERRE CÔTE - LE PATIO - FONTVIEILLE Une bergerie du XVIIIe pour écrin Jean-Pierre et Catherine Côte.Attribution du titre de Maître restaurateur de France depuis janvier 2010. Ils se sont rencontrés à La Cabro d'Or (Les Baux-de-Provence) il y a quinze ans. Elle était chef de rang et lui, chef de partie. Ils ne se sont plus quittés, travaillant ensemble chez les grands : Château d'Artigny (Tours), Alexandre (Garons), Le Prieuré (Villeneuve-lès-Avignon)… Gérants de l'hôtel-restaurant Benvengudo aux Baux-de-Provence, sur les lieux mêmes où le grand-père de Catherine Boxberger avait créé l'Oustau avec Raymond Thuillier, ils décident de sauter le pas et de se mettre à leur compte. Le restaurant Le Patio est à vendre. Ils sont séduits par cette ancienne bergerie du XVIIIe siècle dont ils conservent l'immense cheminée, l'abreuvoir, le râtelier, la terrasse et le jardin fleuri où ils feront pousser les herbes aromatiques qui embelliront "la cuisine méditerranéenne de goût" du chef. Ils s'installent le 1er mai 2006, investissent dans la cuisine, la décoration, le mobilier… Mais, le vrai changement, c'est la carte aux prix très doux (menus à 29 et 36 E) qui laisse la part belle aux produits du terroir, à l'huile d'olive de la vallée des Baux. Et aussi, une multitude de détails qui font la différence : les tables doublement nappées, l'argenterie monogrammée, les tableaux contemporains qui tranchent sur le rustique des murs de pierres. "Ici le temps s'est arrêté", explique Catherine. Comme à l'époque d'Alphonse Daudet, dont les ailes du moulin tournent sur la colline. Restaurant Le Patio à Fontvieille
