    An amazing dining experience from beginning to end. Upon arrival, we were lead to a charming patio and had the most amazing appetizers and champagne. The wine list is superb - a leather bound volume containing the best wines from all around France. We did the tasting menu - each course was better than the last. Creative, yet simple. An amazing combination of flavors, textures and colors. Visually stunning and delicious. We have been in France for 10 days, and eaten at a number of Michelin restaurants. This was hands down the best meal we’ve eaten. I could not recommend this restaurant enough!

    La Mère Germaine (Owner)

    If you like pretentious service and food that looks good, but has no actual substance, then this is the place for you. They have taken trendy nouvelle cuisine to some place it should not have gone. It is overpriced and while the 10 lbs wine list is big, there is no point in having over 1000 different wines to choose from, when you are in one of the best wine regions in the world. Focus on what you have locally, ignore the rest. I don't care how many Michelin stars you have, that does not give you the right to talk down to me because I can't eat 90% of the things on your menu, which there is no way of knowing that until I am sitting at the table. We have dined at many Michelin star restaurants, far better and with service and a menu that was approachable and in fact something we would want to eat, not just look at. This was something I would expect in New York, I have much higher expectations of a restaurant located in Chateauneuf-du Pape.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal today. We loved the variety in the Chef's "improv menu" -- delicious to taste and to see. This was our first visit to the restaurant and we will return if we come back to the south of France. The lively and colorful paintings on the walls were also wonderful. Merci beaucoup!

    We arrived shortly after the new chef had arrived. On the basis of our experience we would recommend La Mère Germaine without hesitation. The food was spectacular and beautifully presented by charming staff. Everyone made a great effort to make the experience as enjoyable as possible and the recommendations of the sommelier were fabulous. Can’t wait to return.

    Everything was amazing. The food was perfect and the service was fantastic. We did not, however, appreciate that people smoked when we are our food.

    My wife booked this restaurant for my birthday. She sent an email to the management to get a table with a view and also mentioned that it will be for a special occasion: my 40th birthday. We arrived and we had to be persistent to get the table we asked for… After being sited, I received the wine bible (very impressive wine selection) I didn’t know what to get so I asked the so-called sommelier for his advice, he said he will get a white wine first then a red and then another red for the dessert. Before getting the starter the sommelier came and simply said: « here’s the white wine » and poured, we tasted and then he left… not a single word about the wine, nothing. We received the starter which was nicely presented but no special flavour or taste. Then, the sommelier returned with the red and said: « here’s the same wine but in red » I almost started laughing ???? my wife then asked what kind of Chateauneuf-du-Pape wine is it? He then said: « this is from our own Domaine » and that was about it. The main course: the lamb was beautifully cooked, congrats to the cook! The dessert arrived and not a single mention about my birthday (not something I care but my wife was sad that it didn’t get noticed as it was mentioned in her email specifically). The dessert was good. However, in one of the best wine region and town in the world, in the only 1 Michelin star restaurant in the area I think you should have a proper sommelier that can advise the customers with a minimum of knowledge… I’m afraid this ruined our experience (not to mention the staff forgot about my birthday) we are not recommending this place and would go somewhere else…

    Absolutely one of the best restaurant experiences. The food is incredible, locally sourced, each dish had purpose and history behind it. The wine selection was perfect, and the service faultless.

    We had Sunday lunch here. The food was excellent - fresh Provençal fare, but very inventively presented and delicious. The wine list is comprehensive and good value for money. Thoroughly enjoyed!
