Enjoy flavor from ProvenceThis unassuming courtyard looked normal from the outside, but once we stepped inside we were magically whisked away to the French countryside. The owners have lovingly recreated a picture book perfect vision of Provence with white washed walls, high paneled windows and bowls of daisies on the tables.

The food got our thumbs up for refreshing, unaffected flavors. The pumpkin soup (RMB 20) was sweet and nutty, complemented with a tomato and basil salad (RMB 15). The jambalaya (RMB 60/100) gave us a hearty blend of flavors, complete with home made sausage. We polished it all off with a great coffee pudding (RMB 20) and home made hazlenut ice cream (RMB 20) so thick and creamy it stayed thick after it melted. Spoilt by the attentive, friendly service through our meal, we whiled several hours away in this rustic idyll before reluctantly drifting back out to the real world.
