Beautiful dining room and terrace, exquisite food, and attentive service. A very special evening.
Directions: On the main route in Cheval Blanc.
We've had dinner at L'Auberge de Cheval Blanc twice. On our first visit (late July 2006), we dined with our 13 year old daughter. We were the first diners to arrive, and the small dining room steadily filled during the evening. One waiter calmly handled the eight tables very effectively. We had the three-course Menu de Provence, which offered a couple of choices at a very reasonable price. (Our daughter had only the dessert course.)
On our second visit-- a Tuesday evening in late September 2006-- we were part of a Slow Travel Get-Together involving 16 of us, the only guests at the restaurant, which opened that evening just for our group. We had a set five-course meal, which included the same melt-in-your mouth lamb (cooked for seven hours) that I'd had on our first visit. This is truly one of the best dishes I've ever had in France. All the courses are just beautifully presented. With advance notice, the restaurant was able to accommodate special dieteary needs.
The restaurant has two indoor dining rooms, one of which opens to an outdoor terrace with additional seating. It's an attractive and relaxing spot for dinner. We found Cheval Blanc easy to reach from our base in Bonnieux-- about a 30 minute drive and well worth it! (In September we paid 40€ per person, including wine and gratuity.)
