Quality of ingredients, good service, and a relaxed atmosphere is what you can expect here at the wonderful La Table de Pol in Lorgues. It’s a little escape, like something we’d find nearer to the coast here or on a beach. Lots of stretching room, super comfy tables and chairs, benches with cushions for your aperitifs, and a cozy wine bar indoors for a more romantic feel; perfect for couples.
On the menu – there is a choice of moderately priced 3 course menus, but not too much, which is what we like. Dishes include herring salad with crunchy topping, mozzarella and tomato salad (nicely presented), mini octopus in a light dressing, salmon (Asian style) marinated in soy and cooked to perfection, a creamy chicken with lime, and other meat dishes. Desserts were tarte tatin, mango and chocolate mousse, and a salted butter caramel gooey cake which was to-die-for!! As a bonus, they had salt crystals on every table that looked more like large pink crystal rocks but with the little grating dish. You can have “fresh salt”…that’s if you need it, of course, but what a novelty!
They have a good wine selection – for an uplifting rosé try the Chateau des Sarrins with your salad or aperos. Great, attentive service, simple but very tasty food and an uncrowded seating arrangement made for a perfect lunch experience. I give it high recommendation!
Market day in Lorgues is Tuesdays in case you come out this way during the week and wish to shop before hand. Lorgues is a proper town with close to 10K population so there’s a lot going on here: lots of shops, restaurants, and services. It’s about a 20 mins’ drive from Cotignac.
