Le Fournil—The New Gold Standard

img_0838

Over the last few years, I’d been hearing mention of le Fournil in several gite rental binders, and it had been on my list of restaurants to try. It did not disappoint! In fact, with each bite we were asking, “How soon can we get back?”

Le Fournil is located in the center of the beautiful village of Bonnieux and set in a natural troglodytic cave. The menu is Mediterranean inspired with the freshest ingredients and the most simple yet refined dishes.

During the summer months, it is absolutely enchanting to sit at a table outside in the evening by the 17th-century fountain.

For our menu, we chose the poisson du jour and the porc du Ventoux with pommes de terre. Both were outstanding!

And for dessert, the chocolat du jour with apricot sauce was crazy good.

Thanks to le Fournil, nothing tastes as good since returning to the States. Now, we can’t help but compare everything to it. It’s hard to choose between le Fournil and our other favorite restaurant in Provence, les Remparts, written about here. But I think you will agree that le Fournil deserves to be the new gold standard.
