Provence restaurants La CampanaAnother small restaurant in Bargemon, Provence, is the La Campana restaurant run by the wonderfully entertaining Chef Nicholas. Nico is both the Chef and the Maitre D' of La Campana. Perched behind his grillade and wood oven, he is always chatting to guests in English, French and whatever other language he can muster. His wife is also actively involved in the service (and cooking).

I would probably describe the main courses at La Campana as good hearty Provencal dishes - lots of meat, fish and poutlry. If you are a vegetarian, then your choice is going to be a but limited. But it would be wrong to classify La Campana as just a grillade restaurant. The starters and the deserts reveal a lot of finesse and Nico's celebrated Chicken Khmer also demonstrates some eastern influences.

During the summer, the La Campana restaurant has a lovely seating area over-looking the square in central Bargemon. On a warm evening, supping on a chilled rose wine and watching the world pass by - this is the perfect start or end of your holiday in Provence.
