A favorite of locals, this nice restaurant serves excellent regional food.

Directions: On the edge of Caromb near the Hotel de Ville, on the road to Beaumes de Venice

We had a Sunday lunch at this wonderful restaurant, with its amazing 27 menu. The food was delicious, generous and a fine value. The service was first rate and unpretentious. The diners appeared to be local people enjoying a special meal. The dining room, with just 12 tables, was comfortable on this rainy day. In nicer weather, there is also outdoor dining in a quiet courtyard.

Some highlights: I had a very memorable wild mushroom soup. Steve was impressed with the agneau (lamb) which was presented in several forms on his plate roasted, grilled, confit and en brochette. Truly a lamb lovers delight! The accompanying side dishes, potato gratin and vegetables, were especially good. The chocolate dessert, the frequently served delice, (a warm flourless cake, in round form) was extraordinarily rich in flavor.

We certainly would return to this if given the opportunity, and would not hesitate to recommend it.
