One of the best restaurants in France is located in a small fortified Provencal town known as Lorgues. Chez Bruno is run and owned by the master of the truffle also known as the truffle king, Chef Clement Bruno. It is three kilometers away from the centre of Lorgues in the Var Back country of the French Riviera in the South of France. The cuisine at Chez Bruno is based on the prized truffle, which is included in almost every dish, if not all, served at the restaurant. Chef Bruno uses more than 5000 kilograms of truffles per year in his dishes. The restaurant has a large terrace, three dining areas, aromatic gardens, and an outdoor swimming pool. It is a favorite hangout of some of the most acclaimed and famous chefs in France including Bocuse, Ducasse, Troigros, Loiseau, and Verge who are all friends of Chef Bruno.
An important town during the Middle Ages, Lorgues still has much of its ancient structures and buildings in tact including a medieval wall and defensive portes. At the heart of Var in the midst of lavender fields, ocres, cicada-airs, and sun-laden vineyards, sits one of the most desirable dining tables that gastronomy fans flock to from all over the world. At the entrance of the restaurant is a fresco that reads: “Share the, the wine and the truffle. According to him. It is a must that food should speak to the heart.” Unlike other restaurants that scrimp on truffles and place only a pinch on a dish that you can hardly taste it, at Chez Bruno, the prized fungus is generously and lavishly used on the dishes.
Rooms are also available and include a continental breakfast. Other amenities in the premises include a sauna and a hot tube, a stylish bar, and an on-site shop selling truffles.
