A true icon of Gordes village, the Italian restaurant La Bastide de Pierres is an invitation to experience indulgent transalpine cuisine in a classy and authentic trattoria.
Italy has come to the heart of Gordes in Provence. Since 1820, La Bastide de Pierres has offered a refreshing pause to gourmets looking for authentic and generous cuisine in the area. After a morning or an afternoon spent exploring the region’s pretty villages, it is a delight to take a break on this charming terrace in the centre of Gordes.
Beneath the canes of the pergola, candlelight, mismatched vintage chairs and colourful crockery give this Provencal restaurant a true trattoria feel.
Take your seat on the beautiful terrace with a view of Gordes Chateau for a lunch packed with traditional Italian flavours. Focaccia, bruschetta and exquisite salads are on the traditional and authentic menu created by the Chef, plus fresh pasta cooked to order and Neapolitan pizzas.
At cocktail hour, start by sharing some antipasti made from carefully selected ingredients from Italy: speck from the Dolomites, mortadella from Bologna, roast peppers and pecorino with a reimagined Italian cocktail, especially created by La Bastide’s barmen. In the restaurant, Pascal and his team offer friendly service and will be delighted to help you choose your dishes. Don’t miss the Chef’s specialities; Milanese veal, lobster linguini or aubergine parmigiana, a real treat.
