It's a simple restaurant that serves honest meals. The outside does not really invite You in. On the inside outdated. But the food is good and not expensive. Friendly waitress. No wifi. Also people come here to pick up pizza. What was the breaking point for us: the waitress and probably the owner/cook too, smoked in the kitchen. So the... More

Consistently delicious pizzas. Kids say they are the best in the world! Other dishes, salads, grills and pasta are also very good

My wife and I have been vacationing near Merindol, and dining at Le Patio Du Vallon several times during each of our visits, for more than 15 years. We keep going back not only because the food, mainly pizzas, but also the best lasagna I've ever tasted, is excellent and quite reasonably priced, but because the owners and the staff... More

My wife and I have been dining at Le Patio for a number of years. The restaurant specializes in pizzas with various toppings, all of which are excellent. The owner/chef also makes other dishes including lasagna which I, a lasagna lover, rate the best I have ever eaten. When the weather is nice dining is outdoors on a roof top... More

We found this amazing little restaurant while travelling in Provence. This pizza is simply amazing. The crust is thin and perfectly done in their bread oven and the chef gives it a special twist with french cheese and marvelous oregano spices. I was impressed, because the chef and his wife give an impression about their dedication and love to the... More

Reading previous reviews we went there for take away pizzas, we ordered four different pizzas and what we got was very disappointing: all pizzas looked the same, with lots of grated cheese on top and very little else to differentiate them tastewise. The pizzas bases were flat and not risen, the dough prior to cooking looked like a piece of... More
