Auberge Postillion de la Provence (popular: La Provence or Auberge La Provence) is a defunct restaurant in Laren, in the Netherlands. It was a fine dining restaurant that was awarded one Michelin star in 1974 and retained that rating until 1989.[2][3][4][5][6]

Head chef in the Michelin period was Han de Wijs.[7][8]

The restaurant was founded in the 1960s by Martin Fagel.[9] In 1969, he sold the restaurant to Han de Wijs.[10][11] In 1989, De Wijs sold the restaurant to Stage Door B.V., who went bankrupt in 1995. In July 1995, shortly after the bankruptcy, the restaurant burnt down.[12]

In December 1989 the restaurant was hit by fire the first time. Main victims that time were the administration and the thatched roof.[13]

Nowadays, restaurant La Place is located on the site.[14]
