Cafe de L’Ormeau in Lourmarin is a curious looking restaurant had our attention as it made us anticipate the unknown.  Walking through the rusty iron gate  into the dim tunnel in suspense.  When we reached the restaurant, we were dazzled by what we saw.

The restaurant is in the courtyard and is encircled by an impressive vine wall – the most massive piece of vine wall throughout my journey in France.  The kaleidoscopic  colors of chairs, glasses, tables and lamps, together with the vine wall made the dining ambience absolutely breathtaking.

The menu is a simple laminated sheet with back and front page, with risotto, pasta, meats, omelette and  pizza (between 10 – 17 euros).

The daily special is on the board (14- 23 euros).

Gary was feeling rather carnivorous and took the meaty mixed grill (17 euros) with big chunks of lamb, beef and chicken.  The chicken was the best grill on the plate – tender and succulent. The lamb and the beef on the other hand, could have been more tender.  The unevenly sized fries seemed to be home-made and they were really good.

My mushroom risotto (13 euros) was extremely cheesy, creamy and flavorful with the taste of mushrooms infused into the rice and I liked the varieties of mushrooms used.  There was one thing though, that needed some improvement, the rice was a little undercooked.

Overall, the food at Cafe de L’Ormeau is not too bad in general, little improvements needed here and there, but the wonderful ambience does make up for the imperfections.
