If you are heading down into the village of Barjols, there is a wide choice of cafés and restaurants. The Café d’Europe dominates the central square, offering classic cheap and cheerful French food and drink. It’s open every day from 6am to midnight, and is generally a lively venue. Just along the path is the Cercle de l’Avenir bar. They only serve drinks, but the atmosphere is more convivial. Still on the central square, Ben & Nat has been getting rave reviews from our friends. So of course we had to test it out. We were also bowled over by the creativity behind the food, the good selection of local organic wine, the price, and the lovely warm welcome. Strongly recommended. A three course lunch costs just €19, evenings are à la carte, with mains around €18. The restaurant is closed on Sunday evenings and all day Wednesday.
