Very pleasant restaurant on the main square in Gordes. Authentic local fare and pizzas made on a wood-fired oven.

We had a very pleasant lunch here in mid-March 2006. The restaurant is located on the main square in Gordes, across from the war memorial. There is an outside terrace, but the weather was chilly and we ate inside in the rustic dining room. Most of the clientele at this time of year seemed to be local people.

The menu features Provençal specialities. The plat du jour that day involved half a roasted chicken, which we observed several other people ordering. Some information from their menu is included on the website. There is a children's menu.

I had stuffed mussels and excellent fries, Charley had a big salad with goat cheese, and Kelly had a very good pizza made in the wood-fired pizza oven. The service was very friendly.

Our lunch was €47 for the three of us, including a demi-carafe of house wine and a sirop for Kelly.

The following week we had breakfast here with two couples from Texas (including Sandy from Slow Travel). This was on Tuesday, the market day in Gordes. There were no decisions to be made except how we wanted our coffee. We were brought baskets of fresh bread, butter, jam and local honey. The bill for the five of us who ate was €32. I was impressed that the server remembered Charley and me. While we ate, we watched one of the owners bring in several boxes of fresh produce from the market.

We would definitely eat here again.
