We stopped for lunch and had an OK meal. The crepe with ham and cheese was good, and the tian of vegetables was OK too, but nothing special. The nice touch was the little lemon liquor that accompanied our coffee.

We had been to this restaurant twice previously, although it was a number of years ago. Great location, and previously delicious french fare, so, I have to admit, our expectations were high. We knew as soon as we arrived that this place had changed hands. We ordered the menu formule, with a risotto (fine) and 2 steaks (thin, fatty, poor)... More

Regretfully the start of a gorgeous day in Provence was marred by a grumpy, throw your food at you young woman. Perhaps we were too early?? However she did say she was "ouverte" when we quietly asked and it was 9:45 am. No forgiveness for service in the centre of town with tourists their prime clientele. Choose differently - there...

We did not eat in this restaurant. We asked for a table early in the evening and the waitress tiredly looked around in a circle at the dirty tables that had not been bussed yet and said, "No." Not a smile and a pleasant, "Can you wait 10 minutes?" Just, "No." I didn't even need to translate for my family.... More

Stopped in after long drive from Gordes. Had a salade Caesar. Salade was tasty but very small portion. Felt a little expensive, given salade nicoise in other towns like Orange or Avignon were easily twice the size. Wouldn't pick it as first choice.

They tried to impose desserts that we didn't order, service was unpleasant and very slow. Fruit salad was so acidic it was impossible to eat.

Good location near village square.Had omelette for lunch which was reasonable quality.Did not have desserts but coffees were excellent.As noted in other reviews the person who appears to be the owner has a somewhat brusque manner.Acceptable but not fine dining by any means.Serving staff were quite pleasant.

Called here for lunch I ordered fish and my partner steak ( medium rare). The waitress brought us both steak, although I said it was the wrong order I said I would have it anyway as I don't like to cause a fuss. What a mistake that was both steaks was as tough as old boots and the chips tasted... More

Worst food we had so far in France. Bread reminds cheap US one, rather then amazing French bakeries. Cesar salad with watery iceberg salad rather than Roman. It was just very low quality and probably worst touristic experience. Cranky waitress. Overpriced for what it was. Wouldn't come back ever.

Le Castrum in the main village square looked the place to be on a sunny week day at lunchtime. The two restaurants nearby were virtually empty but this place was buzzing. We grabbed the only table available and settled in to peruse the French/English menu. The "sandwiches" came in burger buns and the fries were more like sliced baked potatoes... More
