My wife and I dined at Le Mas Tourteron on September 16, 2005. The setting, presentation and quality of the meal were all memorable. The restaurant is in a stone building, a renovated silkworm farm, down a country lane off the road between Gordes & Les Imberts. We dined inside in a warm and convivial atmosphere, complete with a large shaggy dog. Many, if not all, the vegetables used in the meal were from the adjacent garden. The single page menu was passed around the room on a small easel. For our Entrees we chose "Terrine do poireaux et artichauts en salade comme une barrigoule" and "Duo de petits maquereaux grilles, vinaigrette de condiments". Our Plats were "Faranfole de petits farcis mille senteurs" (photo) and "Escalope de pagre du littoral et petits legumes du temps facon bourride".

There was also a cheese course "Le petit plateau de notre maitre fromager" and a very large and excellent dessert table - "Delices et gourmandises de la patissiere".

The staff was young, friendly and attentive. On our way out of the restaurant at the end of the evening, I asked one of the staff if I could have one of the single-page menus. Not only was I welcome to take one, but would I like the chef to sign it?

We will definitely return to Le Mas Tourteron if we have the opportunity. The bill for the two of us, including aperitif, water, 50cl bottle of wine and coffee was 152.
