Book ahead & ask for the upper table for 2 on the balcony - you won't find a more romantic setting! Unfortunately the night we visited the bora was blowing which made it a bit wild! Food & wine - wonderful but it's really about the amazing setting! Would love to go back...

The restaurant is fantastic, service impeccable and the view from the balcony table is second to none. We will definitely be back!

The owner of our B&B recommended the restaurant to us. It was one of the best meals of our 2 week trip. I am a vegetarian and sometimes it is hard for me in the South of France to find something to eat other than pizza or salad. The server was warm and welcoming and even recognized us 2 days... More

Had a very pleasant meal here on a one night stay in Gordes. The proprietor was very welcoming and gave us a free drink due to a short wait for our table to become free. The food was very good and so was the wine. It was very good value for money. The restaurant had a relaxed and friendly atmosphere... More

Made reservations a day ahead because we had 5 people and wanted to make sure we had a terrace table. The meal was perfect. As Americans with little French vocabulary, we needed our translation app to get through the menu but that is to be expected in another country. The food was cooked perfectly ( pork, chicken and cod). Dessert... More

Having decided to have dinner on our last night in the area up in Gordes as it had been a pretty quiet day, we soon realized that everyone was coming out of their hide hole for dinner and had made a booking. After a couple of rejections as they were fully booked, we headed down for one last try, bingo... More

It was a windy evening and insight it was fully booked. Outside the extra heater was started by the staff and we had a nice evening with good local food, friendly service and nice view

The owner of our inn recommended La Trinquette and once again we were not disappointed. It was a charming place, small and cozy. The service was excellent and two dishes really stood out - the steak with foie gras sauce and the grilled vegetable terrine. Outstanding. Our inn owner made reservations which are probably needed. Warning to women-the walk down... More

They have excellent wine, tapas and location. They also do some simple main style courses but smaller dishes were the stand outs in our experience. The local cheeses were especially nice. If you book ahead there's an upstairs terrace.

If you like proper French cuisine then this is a must visit restaurant. Don't expect the menu in English. Friendly staff, atmospheric and unusual. The food is just wonderful and very good value. Do need to book. Fully booked on a Thursday in September. Most produce appears to be regionally & organically sourced.
