Gordes, gourmet destination

With five restaurants and two bars, there is something for every palate and every occasion. Your taste buds will take great pleasure in spending time in a region that is renowned for its delectable ingredients. Beyond the great classics of Mediterranean cuisine, La Bastide has a number of culinary inspirations that will satisfy food-lovers over the course of the days and the starry nights.

Provençal cuisine at L’Orangerie and La Citadelle

At lunchtime, the classics of L’Orangerie are best enjoyed under the hot sun: stuffed Provencal vegetables, grilled filet of Saint-Pierre, purple artichokes in olive oil… Immerse yourself in the gourmet side of Provence, with the best of local products, enjoyed on the terrace in the shade of the mulberry trees, or in the winter garden. At L’Orangerie, the fabulous buffet takes over the two terraces every Sunday for the legendary Sunday brunch.

When the sun turns the entire valley a fiery orange in late evening, it is time to walk over to La Citadelle for a sophisticated dinner under the moonlight, with the best of Mediterranean gastronomy on offer. The dishes are as beautiful as they are delicious, showing off a range of flavours and textures, inspired by the wonderful products of Provence.

Eating with Jean-François Piege at Clover Gordes

It has a warm decor made up of antique furniture and old crockery, and a dreamy terrace, looking out towards the green hills and the distant horizon. The ideal location for his first countryside venture, thanks to the superlative landscapes of La Bastide, here the menu puts nature in the spotlight, with food divided between Greenery and Fire. The mix of products from the Provencal terroir and masterful cooking is truly sublime.

An atmosphere of fun at LE TIGrr Gordes

Both a restaurant and a bar, LE TIGrr brings Provencal evenings to life, with a festive atmosphere that evolves from the aperitif at the start of the evening until midnight strikes. For a cocktail or a glass of champagne at sunset on the panoramic terrace, for a refined dinner with friends, or to prolong the evening with a DJ, LE TIGrr is always a good idea.

The Chef’s cuisine is refined and Thai-inspired with Vietnamese and Japanese influences. The menu includes all the great Asian classics, but Oth Sombath also revisits Mediterranean specialties with aplomb. The perfect harmony between Asian finesse and Provençal authenticity.

An italian getaway at La Bastide de Pierres

A few steps from La Bastide, on the village square opposite the extraordinary castle of Gordes, sits La Bastide de Pierres trattoria – an institution since 1820. The Provencal way of life takes on the dolce vita of Italy with specialties that will delight young and old alike: authentic Neapolitan pizza, gourmet bruschettas, Roman pasta and antipasti – or a dish of the day created by the Chef. Timeless delights designed to create pleasure, served in a retro decor straight out of a 1950s film.
