This tiny but deluxe bistro across from the château has daily aioli, a smorgasbord of fresh cod and lightly steamed vegetables crowned with the garlic mayonnaise. Evenings are reserved for intimate, formal indoor meals à la carte—roast Luberon lamb, beef with truffle sauce, and the like. The '30s-style bistro tables and architectural lines are a relief from Gordes's ubiquitous rustic-chic, and there is a revolving array of paintings by local artists, many of
which are for sale. There are only 26 seats, so book well in advance.
Pl. du Château, Gordes, 84220, France
