Beautiful restaurant specializing in fish, vegetables and Mediterranean products. Open for lunch or dinner, outdoor terrace in warmer weather.

Directions: Right on the main road between Gordes and Coustellet.

Charley and I went for a special lunch out at L'Estellan on a Tuesday in late March. We went here on the recommendation of the owners of our house, who say this is one of their favorite restaurants.

The setting is very appealing. The weather was a little drizzly, so we were not able to eat on the beautiful terrace. We were the first ones at the restaurant at 12 noon, but several other tables were filled during the next hour. Although we had a reservation, it wasn't needed for lunch, at least not on that day. They do recommend reservations for dinner.

We both ordered one of the lunchtime "market menus," selecting from a list of main courses and desserts. We could have had an entree instead of dessert. Charley had the rabbit and I had the duck, and we were both very pleased with our meals. The service was friendly and efficient (our waitress didn't speak English, which we actually preferred), but the place seemed a little too sterile and quiet since there were just four or five tables occupied.

There is a gift shop attached to the restaurant with some very interesting items.

We would return here again and I'd be interested to eat here at dinner. Our meal, including a bottle of wine, was 63Euro, much more than we would normally spend for lunch, but we felt it was well worth it.
