Open in the garden for dining in fine weather!


Restaurant opening hours outdoors

The main garden area is  only open for dining in the dry summer months, but you can still often enjoy lunch outdoors on the upper terrace of the Maison de Mallast restaurant in fine weather in spring and autumn.  Our indoor dining room will be open in the evenings and when outdoor dining is not possible. Remember to reserve your table in advance, as seats will be limited in order to comply with COVID-19 hygiene measures. The garden gate will only be open for entry in good weather.

From 21 May until 9 June we open earlier than normal in the evening due to the 9pm curfew. From 9 June onwards we will revert to opening at 7pm.

Our intimate Restaurant at Maison de Mallast serves both visitors to Montolieu and residents of the local villages, indoors from autumn through winter until the beginning April.  We offer a simpler menu outdoors in our beautiful walled garden from spring to summer, subject to fine weather.  From September until spring there will be some outdoors dining in good weather at midday, on the paved upper terrace but the downstairs garden will be closed until summer.

The restaurant remains available for exclusive use by groups of 10-16 for private evening celebrations all year round, subject to availability. Please email us with your enquiries.

Themed evenings & special offers will be announced from time to time.  Make sure we have your email address to be kept up-to-date.
