Great spot for lunch. I've only ever had a salad there actually but they are enormous and delicious. A bargain at Eleven euros. Served by the very busy couple I assume the owners so not fast food but well worth a short wait. Excellent.

One of the only places open after 2:30 that we found and we had a great lunch of pasta and pizza! Extremely reasonable prices too for being right in the center of town.

Perhaps caught the lady on a bad day but she was rude, had an attitude that resembled a Rottweiler and seemed keen to avoid serving or work. So I walked!

We visited the extraordinarily beautiful hilltop village of Gorde on a Tuesday morning when the weekly market was being held on the Place du Chateau. Immediately across from the market we found this charming restaurant and were fortunate to secure the last table for lunch. With views looking west over the Luberon, we enjoyed a lovely lunch with a massive... More

Had lunch here today and i have never seen a salad (€11) like it...It was huge!! You definitely get your monies worth here - see pictures. We also got a pizza (€12) which was delicious. Restaurant is small but don't let this put you off as it's friendly with quick service and polite staff. This would be good for lunch... More

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.

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.

Thank Susan B
