Most of the party of 8 had the 31 Euro menu which was delightful. Our dog was accommodated with no fuss, as is the norm in France. Very good value and great service.

My friends and I had a break for lunch in between winery tastings. It was a beautiful sunny day, and we decided to walk up the rocky flight of stairs. It was well worth the effort. We had an omelette and a pasta dish with basil (?) that was very yummy. I ordered a duck breast that was perfectly cooked... More

We arrived early which was a good idea since it filled up quickly! We had a wonderful table overlooking the entire Rhône Valley! The service was elegant but not overwhelming and the food was very good. The menus are a little restrictive and there I wished there was more choice. The wine list was impressive but quite expensive even though,... More

Best meal we have had during our three weeks in France! Located on the pathway going down hill for the Papal castle ruins, Le Verger des Vapes enjoys a regal view of the Rhone valley and countryside. We stopped by for lunch before a tasting at Chateau Beaucastel. Both of us opted for the Menu du Jour (20 Euros). A... More

Had read about this place and wanted to eat here. Tried to book for the Saturday night of our 2 night trip to the village but it was already fully-booked. However we got in for the Friday night instead. Had the 32 euro fixed price menu and for the main course we both had the lamb which was a selection... More

Great views from inside or on the etrrace.., a great way to start your segue into an afternoon of "degustation" (tasting). And right below the restaurant is one the best places to do that! The cellar is situated in the foundations of the Chateau (under the restuarant), as well as having vestiges of Roman presence, and vintification, Fun visit &... More

This is an absolutely beautiful setting high up over looking beautiful countryside. Even if the food wasn't as good as it was it was worth it. Fortunately the food was as good as the view was magnificent. This restaurant is out of the way but worth the trip. You want to go when it is warm enough to sit outside.

We sat on the patio, which was just steps away from a stone wall overlooking the valley that the Popes of Avignon looked over from their summer home. It's no wonder that this setting has been loved by so many. Make sure to set aside some time before or after your meal at this restaurant as the location is just... More

Had a nice lunch there enjoying the view and the excellent food! I was very happy with the foie gras and the mussels with butter plus lamb chops!! Definitely worth going.

Rick Steeves said it was great and the TI agreed but even in September weekday couldn't get in wo a reservation. The patio looked lovely dappled in sunshine. But the maitre hardly looked at us when we didn't have a reservation.
