I always look to see the reviews of restaurants before making a reservation. Sometimes because of the reviews, sometimes despite the reviews. The recent reviews here indicated service was slow, never-the-less we went last night. So the result. The cooking was good. The servers were...More

Arrived at this restaurant to a lovely welcome and nice ambience with nicely spaced tables. Staff friendly and helpful. Food and wine was good! However the service was so incredibly slow, we had to say in advance if we wanted the 3 course meal! If...More

The key to fine dining is the atmosphere that exist as the dining facility. I look for all the indicators of a highly regarded restaurant, the presentation of both the food as well as the environment. When I pay for an up market meal whether...More

Dropped in for lunch and regretted having eaten at the Adelaide Central Market earlier. We opted for the "Taste of Duck" entree and it was perfect - duck served 5 ways and each way could not be faulted - and the Burgundy Snails, Duck Breast...More

We booked for six . Three of the party had an entree after an hour then the mains came out after another hour. The bouillabaisse was flavourless, chicken was dry the chips were good however it's not hard to make good chips.

The food was great and the raspberry soufflé to die for. Unfortunately the atmosphere wasn’t like your typical French bistro and the decor rather bland. Worth a visit though for the food.

We had a wonderful dinner at La Provence last night with truly authentic French food prepared by Chef Tarik Marco and restaurant run by his wife Sandrine Maltret. Last November, we had an amazing lunch at their other French restaurant Le Mistral, Willunga. We were...More

Our restaurant is your home – at least, that’s how we like it. We’re French natives, recreating the culinary traditions of Provence in the heart of Adelaide. Think thyme, tarragon, garlic and truffle. Butter – real butter that’s good for the heart! Slow-cooked brisket and steaming hot bouillabaisse, brimming with local seafood. Beef jus, bright green peas and the unmistakable aroma of bouquet garni. Plated up like they do in Provence
