Excellent Italian restaurant in the heart of Gordes. Really good quality produce and ingredients. Lively atmosphere and great for people watching if you can get a place on the large terrace. Share a platter of charcuterie or try their amazing pasta with fresh basil pesto served in a copper pot.
Authentic local cuisine using fresh ingredients and produce, and specialising in fish dishes. Lovely setting in a 14th century vaulted dining room. One of our favourites!
Great semi-gastronomic menu that offers a new stylish twist on local ingredients. The welcome is friendly and professional, there is a decent wine list, and a variety of menus. Try and get a table outside on the terrace overlooking the square.
Not a Gordes tourist-trap. Popular with locals and tourists alike. An authentic restaurant with excellent service and delicious food. Eat inside, or outside on the pretty terrace.
There is a lovely 10 minute walk through terraced gardens from the car park just outside the village to the old village itself. La Petite Café is a very unpretentious and reasonably-priced little place with an inviting outside terrace area. In the evening they light the terrace area and play jazz music. The food is basic, but it’s a lovely setting.
Goult is a must-visit village, and Café de la Poste, is an unassuming location for a delicious, care-free lunch under the canopy in the summer. The food is simple but the prices are very reasonable. There is a good mix of tourists and locals. It has recently started opening for dinner in the evening and you can also order pizza from Gino’s opposite while having a drink and then move over to consume your purchase once ready!
Coustellet is not the prettiest of villages, but this is a great little eatery. Always open, with friendly service. Good food, ranging from simple open sandwiches to an always- lovely “plat du jour”. Good also for coffee and croissants on Sunday market morning.
Only open at lunchtime, but well situated just off the main square near Sotheby’s estate agency. Great location from which to people watch over a coffee on market day. Simple menu, but good value. They do a great burger and chips!
A simple, but popular little bistro that is only a short walk
away. The menu is small, but usually includes a large salad, a meat dish, and omelettes. The terrace has a wonderful view of the valley below Joucas, including Le Mas de Rosemarie.
