Good quality small French restaurant that should have fared much better. Another promising restaurant falls to the finicky transient and demanding dining public. Sad to see it close. Wish the next owners better luck.

We love French food and La Provence would have to be THE best restaurant in Australia! I can highly recommend it, if you want a wonderful Friday lunch or a dinner Tuesday-Saturday. Co-owner Derek greeted us and provided wonderful service throughout our meal. Chef Chris...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
