It’s cosy, inexpensive, friendly, and usually full because it’s the place where the locals eat. There can be no higher praise than that. Food ranges from tapas, charcuterie and salads to steak and chicken curry. La Trinquette has a lovely terrace but it also has one of the best-placed tables in Provence, squeezed onto a tiny balcony up high with magnificent views to the west. Two courses at lunch for 17 euros.
