On night five of our Provence Biking, Food, and Wine Adventure we have what is usually the best meal of the tour.
Granted, the food is usually excellent throughout France and this is doubly true in Provence. But the Restaurant Montmirail in the Hotel Montmirail where we spend the night serves delicious food in an elegant atmosphere with outstanding service. We have been staying in the hotel and eating in the restaurant for half a dozen years and the owner Marc and main waiter Bernard always take excellent care of us.
Below is a series of photos of the menu and the dinner we ate this past April. (Doubleclick on the menu to see it more clearly.)
