Reine Sammut is one of France’s leading lady chefs, her fish cookery especially is sublime and the setting of the Auberge, just outside Lourmarin, is excellent. Prices are high, and the wine list, although well chosen, is also quite pricey. She has recently opened a second less expensive restaurant Le Cour de Ferme focused entirely on regional produce. You can also spend the night here in some luxury (see 'Places to Stay').

Useful information: Menus €46 (weekday lunch)-€120. Menus at Le Cour de Ferme €18-€55. Main restaurant closed all day Mondays and Tuesday evenings and closed mid-November to  end of March. Le Cour de Ferme remains open.
