Description: Ate here twice during a seven day stay in Gordes. Quiet setting 300 metres from the village centre, parking easily accessible in the grounds. Limited menu, but seems to be based on Provencal dishes and using local produce. Very friendly and welcoming staff.Good place for a reasonably priced meal in pleasant surroundings away from the more crowded restaurants in the village.

We called for reservations quite late in the day and the hostess ( you could feel the smile on her face) cheerfully took our 8 pm time. We had a bit of a chat on the phone ( me English and her French) and she recalled it when we arrived. A nice touch. We sat on their garden tables, but... More

While the garden is a lovely setting and the staff helpful we were not able to look past the very ordinary food. I ordered the stone grilled meats and had to look quite hard on the plate to find the minute portion of chicken that was overcooked. One of our party (a vegetarian) ordered the vegetable pasta to find it... More

We were excited to enjoy a meal in this restaurant's lovely garden with a crowd of happy laughing people. Perhaps that was the problem, too many guests. We waited about 30 minutes at our table before being offered a wine (although others arriving after us were served). We were warned when we placed our order that our choice would take... More

I feel compelled to write a review after an amazing experience at Le Clos de Gustave. My husband and I had dinner there earlier this week. We knew we'd found a good place when we popped in 15 minutes before their opening time, and were still welcomed with a smile. We proceeded to enjoy an excellent meal in beautiful surroundings...

Had a nice dinner in Gordes on the day we arrived. Gustave is in a converted farm house 500 ft from the village center. Food and atmosphere was B+. The most unique item was meat (prime rib) served on a heated stone slab. Very nice presentation

This place was cozy inside and the staff were friendly but the food was just average. We were there in October for dinner so everyone sat inside...the fire was going and the ambience was nice. The food was just so-so...nothing special.

Lovely setting but the food was very disappointing ..for example, my starter consisted of a whole raw carrot and a whole raw courgette with a very simple dipping sauce . no attempt even to cut the vegetables into crudités . The rest of the meal followed this basic agenda with the kitchen presenting food with little flavour and even less... More

The ambiance, service and food are all top notch. We enjoyed the evening with some delicious Cotes du Rhone red.

Delicious food typical to the region with friendly, English speaking waitress. It was tucked away and we found it quite by accident, but what a find! And to eat in the conservatory open to the garden was quite romantic. A hidden gem!

Was a little disappointed as we had been told this was one if the best restaurants in Gordes. The restaurant is lovely as are the waiting staff who were very professional and helpful. The food was mixed, the small plate option for €27 was good value, a nice fresh salad, a beef dish with veg and a lemon dessert was... More
