LeFare: Le Grand Jardin

Phone: 04 90 62 97 63

Reviewed by: SL Jones from IL, review #2107

When: 2006

Le Grand Jardin is in a very pretty and quiet vineyard setting in the Dentelles de Montmirail.

Directions: In the Dentelles, near Beaumes de Venice

The setting of this small restaurant/hotel is magnificent. It is tucked into the vineyards below the lacey peaks of the Dentelles de Montmirail. It resides in the tiny prisitine village of LeFare, near Beaumes de Venice. There is a lovely view from the terrace, which is decorated with many flowers. Philip is the owner, and was our server. He speaks both English and French. If forced to eat inside, you would find a charming dining room. This is also a small hotel, with a small pool.

Besides a lovely Provencal vibe, you get good food here. We each had a 22 euros menu, opting for an entrée and a plat. Steve had a smoked chicken salad, with some greens and tropical fruit. His plat was duck with orange and some root vegetables and mashed potatoes. He was very happy with all of this. I chose the salmon tartare as an entrée and some sea bass as my plat. The side dishes were divine, and the sea bass was just right in a buttery lemon sauce. We both pronounced the food enjoyable and the setting even better.

We would recommend Le Grand Jardin, and would happily go back there on a lovely day when we want to dine outside.
