Good food and a nice setting

We, 3 adults and a child, spent a long lunch here relaxing and enjoying the views and the food. The food was all very good. Service was also very good. A pleasant end to our meal was the café gourmand. I would definitely eat here again.

Excellent food and service! Definitely worth a visit. The hosts make sure they offer the best service possible. Though always skeptical about set menus seeing the food offered we decided to opt for it and it was perfectly served . Well done and keep up the good work.

Excellent repas et service - prix très correct. Everything is perfect about this restaurant. Choose between sitting outdoor facing the Place du Château or with a view of the beautiful Luberon landscape or sit inside with a nice decor. Pick from a varied menu card, but you probably get the choiciest meal if you pick from the menu of the... More

Our tour guide, Morjalaine, directed us to L'Encas and I am so happy she did. It was quality fresh French food I was hoping I would get for our 1 day in France. YUM! It was good quality food at a great price. I can only hope that one day I will be in the area again to eat here.

Stopped in for lunch and we were very happy we did. They have huge salads and the mains are also great. They also have pizza and pasta which we did not get involved with. The service was quick and very friendly and prices reasonable. If you are looking for a filling and good lunch then this place is great. Enjoy

This restaurant provides huge salads....huge! It must be one of the best restaurants we have visited. We asked for a portion of french fries with our meal.The owner replied you wont need them.When the salads came out there were enormous. The other food was also good but the salads were unforgettable. We would not think twice about visiting this restaurant... More

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 so beware of you are incomprehensibly offended by... 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
