Restaurants in Provence

Provence restaurants have made their mark on the world of cuisine by combining traditional French ingredients with Mediterranean flavors. Its culinary all-stars get creative with fresh seafood, olive oils and a little extra spice, and the result is regional specialties such as ratatouille, pesto soup and the pizza-like pissaladier. Our guide highlights the best places to eat in Provence, including Le Clos de la Violette in Aix-en-Provence, which serves expertly prepared versions of the region’s signature dishes. Other outstanding Provence restaurants, like the Michelin-starred L’Atelier de Jean-Luc Rabanel in Arles, take a more avant-garde approach to cooking. Here, guests can settle in for multi-course tasting menus that get creative with seasonal, organic ingredients.

During the warm summer months, take the opportunity to dine al fresco many of the best restaurants in Provence. Les Deux Garcons offers outstanding outdoor dining from its location overlooking Aix’s iconic tree-lined boulevard, the Cours Mirabeau. Or, take in rural Provence at country bistros like L’Auberge in quaint Saint-Pantaléon-Les-Vignes. Housed on a 146-year-old property, the restaurant serves first-class prix-fixe meals.
