A refined cuisine inspired by Provencal produce

Chef Yohan Fatela has put Provencal cuisine at the heart of the Gordes’ L’Orangerie menu, creating dishes with great finesse from local products. Flavours and surprising textures combine to make carefully selected ingredients even more sublime.

In season, lamb is accompanied by aubergine confit, nori and samphire. Roast pigeon is enlivened with cherry pickles, the acidic note contrasting with a salsify gratin. Those with a smaller appetite might like to opt for one of the well-designed salads, such as an artichoke salad with anchovies or parmesan.

Desserts are created by Chef pâtissier and chocolate expert Cédric Rivière. Gourmets will lean towards his chocolate and pear several ways creation, while those looking for something lighter will love his sorbets and homemade ice creams.

The vaulted dining room evokes Luberon feasts of yesteryear: padded banquettes, wood carvings, large mirrors, period paintings and immaculate table cloths are the foundations for the décor of this surprising restaurant.
