Food and Drink
At Crillon le Brave, you can savour traditional Provençal cuisine in two unique settings, all thanks to the astounding talent of young chef Anissa Boulesteix. Enjoy a gourmet meal at La Madeleine or sit down for a casual dining experience at bistronomic restaurant La Table du Ventoux.
La Madeleine Gastronomic Restaurant
Cavaillon melons, Carpentras strawberries, Provencal lamb, Ventoux truffles… not to mention all the delicious fresh vegetables that you’ll see lining the stalls at Provence’s colourful markets! Inspired by the wealth of Provence’s local terroir, Anissa Boulesteix carefully selects products sourced from the region’s very best farmers.
La Table Du Ventoux Restaurant
At La Table du Ventoux, Anissa Boulesteix serves up another fine celebration of Provencal terroir, this time through bistronomic cuisine: the very best local produce enjoyed within a relaxed, friendly setting.
The sardines with piquillo pepper, the ceviche, or the pissaladière served on a wooden board are all perfect for sharing with friends whilst admiring the view from the terrace. The journey through authentic Provence continues with a selection of classic dishes reinterpreted with Anissa’s own refreshing twist: reworked bouillabaisse, sea bream with pea purée, vegetable linguine and vegetarian risotto.
On the ground floor of Maison Roche, the oldest house of the hotel, the Bar is the perfect place for relaxing in a calm and intimate atmosphere, for enjoying a Pastis, as dictated by Provençal tradition, or a cigar for connoisseurs. With its new cosy and elegant décor, the entirely vaulted area has recently been renovated for greater comfort.
Don’t miss the delicious spread laid out for brunch every Sunday: it’s an institution at Crillon le Brave. Come and indulge in the generous selection of products from the local area and beyond. The menu offers something for everyone, with a range of sweet and savoury treats perfect for sharing amongst friends and family: tuck into the fougasse, marinated meats and fish grilled outside “à la plancha”, fresh salads, and regional cheeses and desserts.
Once you have reconnected with yourself and charged your vital energies in contact with the unspoilt nature, it’s time to enjoy the region’s resources. Provence offers a multitude of experiences and opportunities to appreciate its exuberant nature and its art de vivre, through its cuisine, wines, art, history and, of course, its people.
Bicycle excursions (available to rent on site), strolls in nature, picnics in the garrigue, flea markets or painting galleries and trips to authentic Provençal markets.
