L'Oustau de Baumaniere-inside or out?

We will be having dinner at L'Oustau de Baumaniere in July. When we were there many years ago, it was Autumn and we dined indoors. I am wondering if it is preferred to dine outside on the terrace in the summer? Thoughts?

  1. Definitely outside when Les Baux is lit up and the pool is shimmering. During the summer, no one sits in the vaulted dining room. And if you find that outside is not to your liking, just ask the staff to move you inside.

    1. I agree - definitely sit on the terrace. We were in France a week or so ago and never found one person sitting indoors in any of the places we ate. Needless to say, it was not raining. :-)

      1. In summer? The terrace, hands down.
