Family run for 60+ years. Starters of green salad and Shrimp (heads and shells on) Mayonnaise were substantial and very good. She had a perfectly cooked Sea Bass (whole) served on a vegetable compote and I had the Escalope de Veau in a Mushroom Cream gravy served with Frites (fries), both absolutely delicious meals. I finished with a fantastic Crème... More

We had 3 meals in this restaurant and had excellent food and service every time. Most of the other customers in the restaurant were locals and well known to the proprietors. Even "out of season" the restaurant was mostly full. We were always made to feel very welcome and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The food on each occasion was... More

I'll keep this short and sweet: If you're looking for somewhere with absolutely charming service and excellent food (and cuisine which, whilst not exactly 'elaborate', is not nearly as simple as the surroundings might suggest) and, most importantly, fresh food - not frozen! unlike so many of the tourist traps down here... France isn't what it used to be... -... More

Fabulous place to eat and would highly recommend. Staff welcoming and efficient, food fresh and beautifully cooked, wonderful vibrant atmosphere. Ate here four times in two weeks and was never disappointed, in fact no other restaurant meal we tried met with the same standard. Will return with no hesitation, a real find in a fabulous, beautiful town.

We had a couple of meals in this charming little restaurant during our stay in Sanary and were very impressed with the warm welcome from the owners and with the freshness of the seafood. There is no sea-view and very limited outdoor seating but it's worth a detour to Le Provencal because the cooking is good and honest, and is... More

We went to this restaurant twice (something we rarely do on holiday) it felt very French to us and the welcome was extremely friendly. The food was delicious - do not miss the fish soup with all the trimmings - absolutely to die for!! We didn't feel like tourists here - more as though we were friends in someone's dining... More

We have visited le Provencal twice having discovered it last summer. On both trips we ate the most delicious authentic French food with a flair. The proprietor and his staff are most welcoming and we will certainly return.
