Excellent food well executed, short but interesting menu, good and affordable wines, friendly (but very rushed) servers, nice setting. They even created a kid's menu for our young son, unasked. We loved it here, and the packed dining room suggests the locals are in the know. Highly recommend.

Having an appointment in a nearby village we had just an hour for lunch. The staff was very accommodating and we made it through main course and desert. Now, this place deserves more time. This is a place for a good three or four course meal. Food is excellent, service impeccable. We're definitely coming back again!

I was working on a wedding planning and we visited the restaurant more than once to make a deal for the wedding. What can I say…the location and view are great as is the atmosphere. Sandrine and her staff are super. Friendly, care taking and incredibly passionate about their job. And then I didn't even start on the food. I... More

Due to an error on my part, we arrived without a reservation for lunch. Luckily, they had one free table by the kitchen. We didn't get to enjoy the world famous view but, we got to eat a wonderful meal. We started with the house appertif/cocktail that sounded better than it tasted. Skip it. We had the menu du jour...

We stayed in a small B&B in Chateauneuf-de-Gadagne and were looking for a nice place to eat. Tripadvisor led us to La Maison de Celou and we were so pleasantly surprised. A beautiful little restaurant with a terrace overlooking the hills. The food is outstanding and the best value by far compared to all the different places we've eaten during... More

La Maison de Celou is an excellent neighborhood restaurant-but elegant ambiance and food. Lovely views of the Luberon and surround area. Good service, nice people and they served our party of 12 very well.

Called in on the way to Avignon TGV. Hard to find, off the main road , but worth the effort, for the lovely terrace and excellent views it affords. €18 euro menu with no choice is excellent value. We had mackeral galette, cochon , and then a bread and butter pudding with vanilla ice cream. May sound simple, but was... More

We stayed in this lovely village and had lunch at La Maison. Absolutely excellent -- the food, the setting on the terrace with a view of the valley, and the service.

A large group of us (12) were accommodated on no notice for a dinner one September evening. We sat inside and had a variety of appetizers and entrees. The view is spectacular, but our group had the pleasure of staying at the chateau itself, so we were focusing more on what was on the table, which was tasty and fairly... More

This bistro is in the heart of the village (parking is not easy), the team and owner are smiling and you feel that all are happy and willing to do their best. The products are fresh, local and the menu has a right choice between dishes and excellent pizzas. The terrace is just a dream overlooking the valley and offering... More
