Bonnieux: La Flambee

Phone: 04.90.758220


Reviewed by: Kaydee from TN, review #2402

When: 2007

Appealing pizzeria/restaurant in Bonnieux. Provencal cuisine and pizza from a wood-fired oven. Outdoor dining.

Directions: At the bottom of the village on the Rue Victor Hugo (past the pharmacy). On a small square, le Place de 4 Septembre.

Somehow in our four years of living in and visiting Bonnieux, we had not found our way to La Flambee until this March. How did we miss this place?! We really really like it!

La Flambee is located in the lower part of the village of Bonnieux, on the main road that winds its way up the hill and on to Lourmarin. Its connected to a small hotel, Le Clerci, with a bar and a few tables out front on the street. (I suspect the main reason we missed it is the total lack of curb appeal ...) Once inside, our opinions changed immediately. There's a very warm and attractive dining room with stone walls, wooden beams, and a fireplace. For the warmer months, there's a terrace on an upper level, apparently with beautiful views out across the valley.

Charley and Kelly had pizzas, which were perfect ... cooked in a wood fired oven. There are many variations to choose from. I ordered the 16 euro menu, with a goat cheese salad (excellent) and their specialty, beef daube (also excellent). I shared my creme brulee dessert with Charley and Kelly. We had a half-carafe of local wine. The restaurant seems to be run by a family, who were welcoming and friendly. Although we were there in the off-season (late March), the restaurant was about half-full, with a mix of locals and visitors.

We paid 42 euros for dinner for the three of us - and definitely feel we got good value for our money. We will definitely eat at the Flambee again.
