Mighty Salads..

I had remembered how excellent and the salads were on a previous visit to Gordes so didn't hesitate to go again. I think it's a husband wife team running this restaurant and they were as friendly and efficient as before. Would definitely recommend for lunch. Lots of croutons are supplied with salad... read more

After one week in Southern France, I knew they considered vegetarians as incomprehensible aliens. I was happy when a restaurant had one dish for me. Thus, I was overwhelmed when I saw the menu of L’Encas in the heart of the picturesque Gordes – the first time there were so many options for me I didn’t know if I preferred... More

While the food was good, it wasn't great but the atmosphere and friendly staff made up for any deficiencies. We loved enjoying the people watching we were able to do from this perfect spot in the middle of the village. Prices were fair and we were treated very well. We returned to Gordes a few days after our first visit... More

If I could only go back in time I would ask them for the recipe. We wander into this restaurant on our first day in Provence and it certainly set the bar for the rest of our trip. Great location, attentive service and great value. Ordered from the fixed price menu, everything was fresh and delicious. The rosé did not... More

The restaurant is in the middle of the village, in a very practical place! They serve very nice salads in good prices (10,50 per salad)! We tried the Luberon salad and was verey tasty! Their coffee was very good as well!

We ordered 4 formulas, ( beef, lamb and 2 salmons) fish came uncooked, we send it back, they put it in microwave, and brought back a fem min later, both meets were unchewable. They were really busy, but it is not an exuse when you sped over $100

We arrived just a few minutes before they opened and the waiter saved a table for us for when they opened. They promptly put a large container of ice along with a carafe of water on our table on an extremely hot day. Service was excellent and the formula menu was delicious as well as a great value. With so... More

It was a real disappointment on a return visit to L'Encas after a reasonable lunch the day before. We were passing through town and wanted to have a coffee and a creme brulee. On sitting down in a half empty restaurant (there was at least 20-25 seats free) we were told in a grumble that we could only stay if... More
