Three Michelin star restaurants : L’Oustau de Baumanière

All the flavors of Provence at the Oustau de Baumanière, three-star restaurant

First of all, there is the scent of the garrigue that one smells when arriving at the domaine Baumanière. The sun reveals all the fragrances of the Mediterranean vegetation, offering a first contact with the scents of Provence. The experience continues at the Oustau de Baumanière, a three-star Michelin restaurant. The restaurant’s gastronomic cuisine sublimates, with subtlety, elegance and simplicity, the great Mediterranean classics that have made its success.

L’Oustau de Baumanière, a gourmet’s reference since 1945

The establishment, founded in 1945 by Raymond Thuilier, is a landmark in the history of French gastronomy. It has marked several generations of gourmets and remains a first choice address for celebrities and royalty. It was in 1949 that the restaurant obtained its first star. If it is renowned for its exceptional gastronomy in Provence, the Oustau de Baumanière also benefits from an extraordinary setting: the cliffs of the Val d’Enfer, a landscape as grandiose as it is tormented, surround the three-star restaurant. On sunny days, you can enjoy this incredible panorama on the terrace nestled in a green setting.

Refined and original dishes, always in the spirit of the kitchen of yesteryear

When Chef Glenn Viel took over the helm of Oustau de Baumanière in 2015, he wanted to honor the cuisine for which the restaurant was famous, while revisiting it. Originally, the specialties were rich and creamy: one would enjoy a delicious leg of lamb from the Alpilles in a crust served with a gratin dauphinois, before finishing with a millefeuille… The three-star restaurant is now offering a streamlined, more subtle and colorful version of these typical Provencal dishes. In addition to these must-haves on the menu of the Oustau de Baumanière, there are other choice dishes such as the blue lobster cooked in two stages or the “15 year old” langoustine. Glenn Viel highlights products from the Provençal region, such as the AOC olive oil from the Vallée des Baux or the organic vegetables from the Domaine de Baumanière garden.
