Cafe Veranda

"We tried the newly opened Veranda restaurant in Menerbes. For foodies we feel this restaurant has great potential. Owner/chef Laurent Jouin, has experience as well as aspiring to develop a strong team around him here. Coquilles St Jacques (scallops), duck and mushroom followed by an excellent apricot clafoutis. Beautifully balanced curried guinea fowl on a second occasion. Notably the vegetarian among us was graciously accommodated."

"My husband and I barely spoke during the meal we enjoyed at Veranda. We were carried away on waves of joy over the delicious meal. Each bite was bliss! Add to that the very calming ambience, and you have a wonderful evening in store."

Penny Lundquist - 2009
"The fact that my wife and I returned to the Veranda in itself tells the story. The meals were of simple preparation, but very well cooked, and service at table was polite and helpful. On our second visit, we both had the daube as a sort of homage to provencal cooking and it was truly excellent. The wine list, with many local domaines, provided an excellent choice of Cotes du Rhone, Luberon and Provence. And the prices were very reasonable."
Peter Rosier, Sydney, 2008
"A wonderful way to start our vacation-dinner at Veranda. Although we had no reservations (highly recommended), we were happily accommodated by staff. Our first delight was pumpkin soup which was delicious, smooth and creamy. The main course of fresh salmon was heaven. A beautiful spot, wonderful staff and chef and one of the best in the area."

Sandra, USA - October, 2010
"A great place with fantastic food. The service was impeccable! Try the panacotta."

Fredrik Scheide & Family, 2011
"We stayed in Menerbes in October 2011 and ate at this wonderful restaurant twice. Would recommend it to anyone. In fact since we are returning to Menerbes in October 2012 we plan to eat there again."

Elaine H, Perth Australia - 2011
"We dined twice at Café Veranda during our week in Menerbes. The staff were very friendly and the food superb and plentiful. The scallop risotto and filet of beef were wonderful and the baba au rhum and pistachio panna cota were fabulous desserts. The chef checked with each table after dinner and he took great pride in ensuring his customers were happy"

Keith and Lin Klose, Washington - 2013

This is fine dining and we couldn't fault the service or the food. It's expensive, so a good place for a special meal/occasion rather than an average evening out. Lovely setting inside or out."
