    Delightful people, exquisite food and a sensational venue. Anyone who knows the famous, and equally special, Petersham Nursery in London will love this resturant.

    The restaurant ambience , decor, elegance- superb. However, it was extremely hot ( at 21:00). 2 big fans could solve the problem. Food was superb, there is no choice of menu, so advised to look ahead on the internet. Service was great to start, but then was very slow- it seems that the bottle neck is the kitchen… highly recommended

    Jardin Secret (Owner)

    Dear Milka, thank you for your review. Since your visit, we indeed installed some fans to help with the hotness of our region. Hoping to see you again in our restaurant.

    Many excellent features including setting and quality of cuisine. If the following little criticisms can be ironed out I will be fondly returning. 1) The seating is by wire backed chairs, or something similar. Golden oldies like me find them uncomfortable. 2) We didn't receive our main course until 1h 40M after arrival. 3) The wine list could have had some more affordable reds from off-centre areas. However our Crozes 2019 of Alain Graillot did accompany our perfectly cooked beef well. This restaurant has the potential to reach 9.5/10. 0 caractères A

    A gem of a restaurant in the most serene, Provencal surroundings with cuisine and staff to compliment. Local ingredients, some grown in their surrounding gardens. Thoroughly recommend the experience and the value.

    Le Jardin Secret is what we call in French ´une trouvaille’, it’s a hideaway restaurant in the lovely village of Cotignac. A beautiful lunch menu set up by the chef, you don’t want anything else. We highly recommend this restaurant!

    Jardin Secret (Owner)

    Dear Mark, thank you for your lovely message. We are happy that you enjoy your visit at the Jardin Secret , we look forward to see you a soon !

    We really enjoyed our experience at Jardin Secret. We chose the 4 course menu (which might as well count as 5 as they offered us a variety of small starters to enjoy with a glass of champagne we chose to start the meal with). Service was excellent. Food was of high quality and nicely presented. Bring two stomachs!!! We hope to go back. Recommended!

    Jardin Secret (Owner)

    Dear Kris, we appreciate your review and we are delighted to read that you enjoyed your time at the Jardin Secret, we will be happy to welcome you back soon !

    We were a table of four for lunch. Our introduction on entering the restaurant was to our own private room, simply decorated but homely and welcoming. The food was excellent, the service excellent - every detail catered for. To anyone who may not have been before - well, well worth the experience. Well done !

    Jardin Secret (Owner)

    Thank you Anne for this beautiful review, we are so happy when we read your lines. We hope to welcome you again soon, wishing you a happy end of the year and a wonderful 2022.

    Another wonderful evening and delicious meal at Jardin Secret. It is really a delight. We were privileged to meet the original chef and creator of the restaurant who made a guest appearance. Everything is delicious and the team is so welcoming and friendly. As great in the winter inside as in the summer garden

    What a great find! We are so happy to have found such a lovely restaurant just within our dinner driving area. Most unexpected to have a lovely private dining room, great ambience, fabulous food and wine. Our waitress was absolutely sweet and very attentive. The service was a perfect speed, we were not rushed and each course (4) came at the perfect time after the first. We are looking forward to coming back in the summer to take advantage of the terrace and garden, which looked lovely with the lighting. Many thanks to all of you for giving us such a lovely, memorable evening.

    A really nice place in this wonderful village. Service very friendly, food quality superb. The choice on the menu is limited, which I understand as they started only this year. We definitely come back !

    The Jardin Secret has the perfect ambience: it really is a secret garden with a view over Cotignac and the hills of Provence. Sadly however the service does not live up to the ambience. It took sometime before anybody came and offered us a drink, and then equally some time before the staff member explained that the menu (48 euros) offered no choice at all. We had to ask for the blackboard to be brought to us. It happened to be bouillabaisse (fish soup) to start, and yet more fish for the main course, with no vegetables to speak of and yet more of the bouillabaisse in a bowl with more fish in it. le Jardin Secret makes a point of saying they use their own home grown vegetables which we were looking forward to, but other than the little tomatoes served with our aperitif there were none. There is no Maitre D’hotel and one was needed, the staff did their best (Nathalie and Roland our waiters were charming) but at times most of the tables were waiting to be served. The dessert was a clafoutis, which was good but very small. The chef came out at the end of the meal but failed to come and talk to us. We gave our feedback to our waiters, but it’s really at management level where the problem is. We were very disappointed as we live locally and were looking forward to a special meal at a special place.

    Nice place, friendly service, limited choise of dishes but use of good ingrédients, sauces tasty but to dominant so they hide the basic taste of the méat/fish that is served. Icy glass of red wine was served, not a good idea. Lights on the table are disturbing in the evening.

    Jardin Secret (Owner)

    Dear Ronald, we are glad you liked the location and the service, We are sorry that the food and wine did not live up to your expectations, this does not reflect our usual comments, so we hope to see you again soon so that you give us another chance. Best regards.
