Les Terrasses is a recent discovery of ours in Bonnieux, a casual brasserie/pizzeria near the top of the village on the route to Lourmarin. Once discovered, we enjoyed it so much that we ate there four times on our 2-1/2 week trip to the village in September 2006. Each time we had pizza and wine, though the menu is much more extensive and offers salads, pasta, and three-course meals of local specialties. The pizza is really, really good. The salads are substantial, and the desserts are quite delicious. They are open at lunchtime too and sell ice cream through the day. There is also a small "internet cafe" consisting of one computer.

At dinner, the bar area is normally crowded with locals having a good time. The main dining room is separate from the bar activity. Stairs lead upstairs to two outdoor terraces, which were closed when we visited in late September. There are also some tables out front on the road, facing out toward the beautiful view of the valley and the Vaucluse Plateau. We went with local friends on our last visit, and it seemed that most of the people eating dinner on that Saturday evening were local, including several families. We never had a reservation, but we went early in the evening. I'd suggest a reservation in July and August, just to be sure.

This is a great place to eat when you don't want to invest a lot of time and money in a meal-- an easy and casual environment with very good food (especially the pizza). We paid $38.90 US for two pizzas, a half-litre of the house wine, and a shared dessert. (And if you are really up for a quiet night, they have pizza to go!)
