Best Dining Room
Prévôté The stone walls and fine linens are lovely, but the real star is the Sorgue River, which runs right through the center of the dining room. On my last visit, I had a sublime rabbit salad and fine quenelles of salt cod (4 rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue; 011-33-4-90-38-57-29).
Le Bistro de France This café in the village of Apt may look simple, but it is the in spot for lunch on Saturdays after shopping in the town market. Try the fresh, plump oysters and other traditional bistro foods (67 place de la Bouquerie, Apt; 011-33-4-90-74-22-01).
Worth The Drive
Le Mas des Vignes A long way from anywhere, but worth every kilometer. Local fruits and vegetables shine in this kitchen (try the fresh apricot desserts), and the view--which takes in a dramatic limestone rock formation nearby and Avignon and Orange in the distance--is unbeatable (Route de Mont Ventoux, Bédoin; 011-33-4-90-65-63-91).
