Remember: chefs can change and restaurants can rise, fall or even close down altogether. For this reason we have noted at the bottom of each review the date(s) when we dined there. Check back soon for new additions. And bon appétit -or, as the locals say, "bon app"!

aigues mortes boem interior2The majestic mediaeval fortified city of Aigues Mortes right on the edge of the Camargue is unusually well endowed with excellent restaurants and Boem is one of the best.

bedoin la gousse dail signTired and hungry after a day's cycling around Mont Ventoux, we choose La Gousse d'Ail somewhat at random from the line-up of restaurants on Bédoin's main square. It turned out to be an excellent decision.

carry le rouet la brise stepsWith its wide-angle views across a pretty harbour, its classic, quality French cuisine and very friendly welcome, La Brise is the best restaurant in the seaside resort of Carry le Rouet, just outside Marseille.

La Poissonnerie restaurant, CassisLa Poissonnerie is just that: a fish stall once stood here, right on the harbour by the boats that supplied it. Then came a fishmonger's and, more recently, a restaurant, run by the same family for generations. Fish doesn’t come fresher.

La Villa Madie, CassisThe only Michelin-starred restaurant in Cassis, La Villa Madie has been through tough times since it opened in 2006. But it managed to weather the storms and is today one of the town's more desirable - and relatively affordable - places to eat.

Auberge du Teillon Castellane exteriorIf you are touring the Gorges du Verdon, the Auberge du Teillon is one of the very best - and best-value - restaurants in the region.

Lourmarin LAntiquaire facadeL'Antiquaire represents what the Michelin guide used to call une valeur sûre: value you can count upon - which is not always something tourists can actually count upon in one of the most beautiful villages of France.

miramas la toupine aumonierePerched high on the hill in a pretty mediaeval village outside Marseille, the family-run Sens de la Toupine boasts superb views, high-quality food and great value for money.

Domaine Terre de Mistral RoussetSet in its own vineyards and olive groves, the Terre de Mistral is a perfect stop if you are touring the Mont Sainte Victoire and countryside round Aix or Saint Maximin la Sainte Baume.

Cochlear Roman spoon at the Taberna Romana, Saint Remy de ProvenceTaberna Romana is an unusual and intriguing place to eat in Saint Rémy de Provence when visiting the Roman ruins at Glanum or Vincent van Gogh's room at Saint Paul de Mausole.

Terrace at La Rencontre Sanary sur MerThe beaches and harbour front of Sanary sur Mer offer the best views, but it's in the pretty back streets of the Old Town that you'll find the dining bargains.

valreas cafe de de paix2You can't go to Northern Provence without stopping by the Café de la Paix in Valréas, a must-visit spot for a drink or meal on several counts.
