French cuisine, very good food.They have only set menu as far as we understood, but if you do not eat something from the menu the are flexible to suggest something else.
Nice interior. If the weatheк permits you can sit outside in a very nice walled garden.
The restaurant is not on the central street, we asked for a recommendation from a local person in a shop. And we all know that locals know better where to go :)
Favorite Dish: All was very fresh, very tasty and the amount was just OK.
Sunday lunch: 40 euros per person
Lunch other days: 35
Drinks not included
Closed on Tuesday and Wednesday
The restaurant is situated a little way away from the main run of the towns eateries, though still on the river. This was where the old tax office used to be for the industries moving their goods in and out of town. This was abandoned in 1923. The same family has been running the place since the 1950's and it shows by the number of locals eating here. We both went for the block of fresh Salmon followed by a home made tart with red fruits.
All in all with a carafe of Cotes du Rhone came to just over 50€. The two coffees were offered by the waitsperson, who was the son of the owner.
This is the cafe in all the pictures of L'Isle sur la Sorgue. It stands in the shade of two fabulous big plane trees right across from the Church in the Main Square. It is a great spot to sit and have a coffee or a drink and people watch. By day it is a cafe and serves breakfast and lunch, whilst by night it becomes a very popular bar.
Favorite Dish: I ate here a couple of times and both times had the Croque Monsier which was superb. I guess it could be said that Croque Monsieur is something that can't be botched, but I would disagree. I've had some very good ones and some very ordinary ones indeed. The Croque at Cafe de France is exceptional and comes with a lovey salad garnish on a wooden tray. The coffee I had was very good as well and the prices were no cheaper or dearer than what I would expect from such a lovely old establishment.
All in all I would return if ever I was lucky enough to go back to L'Isle.
We were immediately attracted by this sidewalk café. It had just a few tables on the street with colorful napkins and an old olive tree in the front.
Favorite Dish: We had lunch here. My husband had a salade chèvre chaud (warm goat cheese) and I had a salade auvergnate with cantal and jambon cru. Delicious! With two glasses of wine and a bottle of water our total bill was 30 euro.
Café restaurant de la Sorgues stands along the promenade, on the other side of a canal.
We had a “joue de porc confite” (pork cheek), with delicious home-made chips. A bottle of red Côte du Ventoux was perfectly fit with the dinner. The desert was a “general”, a lemon ice cream sprinkled with pear spirit
“le Cours d’Eau” is a hotel, a restaurant and a bar. The menu of the restaurant was fine, with reasonable prices but we chose to try elsewhere. There had been two hours of heavy rain and we did not feel like dining on a terrace close to more water!
