L’Atelier du Vigneron in Provence Alpes Cotes d’Azur

During my trip to the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France (between Marseille and Toulon), I discovered the small town of Ollioules where a fantastic gastronomic restaurant prosper : l’Atelier du Vigneron.

The owner designed a very 18, 19th century restaurant where some of his own family furnitures and old china can be found. The atmosphere was romantic and fun with some old French songs in the background.

We started our meal with a delicious amuse bouche of foie gras crème brulee followed by a carpaccio of langoustines. I must tell you right now, we did not go for the most healthy options but looking at all our neighbours plates, I do not think l’Atelier du Vigneron do healthy and small portion !

Very quickly, we moved on to two very traditional French main course : a daube of wild boar with fresh tagliatelle which was cook to perfection (better than my Mum’s!!) and a beef Rossini cooked exactly how my guest requested.

“Oh God ! Why did I choose to wear that dress ?” was the only thing in my mind !!

To keep us waiting for our desert, a pre-desert of fresh fruit and pistachio cream was offered to us, a glass of Champagne and a plates of chocolates !

The deserts were extremely delicious, pretty and creative. My poir belle Helene was the attraction of the restaurant when the waiter poured some hot chocolate on top of the chocolate bowl to make it melt…devine !
