La Cour de Ferme de l'Auberge La Fenière

Located in the old stables of La Fenière and doubled in size by a nice guinguette-style terrace (a wood pallet bar, parasols and straw hats), the new bistro from the Sammut family puts a cheeky spin on high quality ingredients for its fine dining restaurant: vegetables from Lourmarin, fish from Sète, lamb from the Alpilles, rice and duck from Camargue, etc. The day we went for lunch, tested and approved on the €32 menu: very fresh melon carpaccio with shiso and Timut peppercorn – or a very simple green tomato gazpacho served in a Duralex glass; perfect grilled mackerel fillets with sautéed zucchini and onions – or a hearty shakshuka served piping hot in a Staub skillet; before a white peach soup in keeping with the tone. And to help you survive the heatwave: a white Luberon from the Château la Canorgue (€6 a glass), a Coteaux-d’Aix rosé from the Château de Beaupré (€30 a bottle), and a red Vaucluse from the Domaine de Maslauris (€30). Menu €32, à la carte €38-41, brunch €39 (Sunday). // A.S.
