Charley and I enjoyed a great lunch at Le Val des Fées in late March 2006. The restaurant was suggested to us by Kevin Widrow. The restaurant has a small bar and a very attractive brightly-colored dining room with about 12 tables. There's also a terrace (not open at the time of our visit) that looks out over the market square and the ochre cliffs of Roussillon.

Le Val des Fées serves lunch and dinner. Options included pizzas, large salads, omelettes, and grilled meats. The prices are very reasonable. They also offer a more expensive three-course menu that would be appropriate for dinner.

Charley had a pizza that was very good. I was hungrier and ordered the plat du jour, which was daube de boeuf. I've had beef daube at several places, and this was the best I've had-- a huge plateful of beef in a wine sauce. The big chunks of beef just fell apart when I touched them with my fork. My meal also came with a piece of very good apple tart. The plat du jour was 12 euro.

Our bill was 31.50 euro for the two of us, including wine and one coffee. The service was friendly and efficient. We're definitely coming here again!

The manager (not sure if he was the owner) told us they are normally closed on Wednesdays. They are also closed for a month of vacation sometime in January or February.

Most of the parking in Roussillon is pay parking. The most convenient lot for this restaurant is in the lot by the pharmacy, where the market is held on Thursday mornings.
