We have lunched at La Fontaine on several occasions, as a couple and as a larger party, and always come away content. The food is honest, authentic and appetising. The wine list offers good quality local wines. The owners are charming and always attentive. Whether eating inside or out (we have done both), the quality remains consistent. Inside is full... More

Quaint restaurant in this little village...dining room full of antique clocks and very cosy as not able to eat outside. Lovely family run atmosphere with attentive service and very good food well presented from an a la carte style menu. Expect to pay about 70 euros for 2. Well worth a detour if visiting this area of the Luberon.

We have been coming back to this restaurant several times a year as a couple or with family and friends since around 2011. We have eaten on the terrace overlooking the villagesquate and its fontaine in summer (booking recommended) and in the low season, where there is a roaring woodburing stove and a very quirky 'antique shop' decor. One menu... More

This is a lovely restaurant. This dishes are excellent, with a good variety to chose from, all home cooked. The owners are the perfect hosts - so welcoming and ready to engage with you if that is what you want. They speak English, French, Dutch, Italian and German so communication is easy. I had the salmon and prawn salad starter... More

La Fontaine is not to be missed out on - I went there with my family and all four of us were thoroughly impressed.

I was looking for a restaurant close to our holiday home to celebrate our anniversary and came across La Fontaine on TripAvisor. I sent an e-mail to book a table and got a reply that same evening. We had dinner at La Fontaine last Monday for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. All dishes were delicious and service was... More

We go back to La Fontaine whenever we are in the Luberon. In the summer the outdoor terrace provides a cool place to relax overlooking the square; in the winter the restaurant is cozy and inviting. Likewise, the chef's food follows the seasons using local produce and recipes but often with a crisp modern twist.

Thank NiMo79
