Mausanne-les-Alpilles: La Vallee

15 avenue de la Vallee des Baux , Phone:
Closing day: Sunday

Reviewed by: Doug Phillips from Canada, review #1563

When: 2005

A small restaurant in a town with several good dining options, La Vallee is open Mondays. We enjoyed our dinner in September.

Directions: From St. Remy follow the sign to Mausanne-les-Alpilles. When you come to the main intersection in the town, turn right. The restaurant is on the right after approximately one mile.

I made an email reservation at La Vallee before we left Canada. In addition to some positive comments I had read, La Valle has the uncommon virtue in Provence of being open on Mondays.

La Vallee is very small, seating about 20 people. We were there on September 12, 2005. At one table was an American couple who were based in Mausanne-les-Alpilles, dining at a different restaurant each evening. They commented on the number of excellent dining options in the town.

Service was very friendly and informal. We had difficulty translating some of the menus selections. The young waitress spoke very little English, so the chef, Hervé Férary, came out of the kitchen a couple of times to help us out.

There were several Entrée choices. We had "Terrine d'aubergine" and "Mesclun à l’huile d’olive et ses petits légumes". For our "plats principaux" we selected "Agneau rôti au thym" and "Parmentier de Canard". Both were very good.

Given the opportunity we would return to La Vallee.

Price: 28€ per person. The total for the two of us, including aperitif, 50cl of wine, water and coffee was 88€.
