Roussillon (/ˈruːsɪjɒn/ or /ˌruːsiːˈjoʊn/; French: [ʁu.si.jɔ̃]; Catalan: Rosselló [rusəˈʎo], Occitan: Rosselhon) is one of the historical counties of the former Principality of Catalonia, corresponding roughly to the present-day southern French département of Pyrénées-Orientales (Eastern Pyrenees). It may also refer to Northern Catalonia or French Catalonia, the first used by Catalan-speakers and the second used by French-speakers. A 1998 survey found that 34% of respondents stated they speak Catalan, and a further 21% understand it.

We happened upon this beautiful cafe, on a sunny September afternoon, in need of some refreshment. We were serve fairly quickly despite them having a full sitting outside...and although we were only having drinks, the Asian/French waiter was jovial and had time to crack a joke or two. We loved soaking up the ambiance of this wonderfully positioned cafe...

Its the view! A place to sit and watch the world go by whilst looking out towards the attractive perched village of Roussillon and to the magnificent ochre cliff.
Food was perfectly OK. We had a salad and a pizza followed by an extraordinary Ice-cream which attracted astonishment from other tables followed by requests for photographs. Kids of all ages will love it.
Service was efficient and friendly but this was the beginning of April.

Our group of 8 including two children were returning from a Monday morning visit to Abbaye de Senanque, and stopped at this very pleasant village. We had been advised to visit the Cafe de la Poste for lunch, but we learned on arrival that it was closed Mondays. Le Carillon was right around the corner and the posted menu looked inviting. We were not disappointed. The pasta dishes were tasty and al dente. Nicely accompanied by a house wine, or a biere pression. The service was excellent, and the Terrace with awning was attractive, but we opted to sit just inside the restaurant. In view of that great lunch (menu 2 plats + cafe for 21 euros) we will definitely return when in Goult !!

Excellent (quality and preparation) food worth the price in a touristy and charming Gordes. Lovely poultry (guineafowl) and lamb and fabulous desserts!!! The only thing was a starter which was a lobster and I naively thought it would be the entire or at least half of a lobster but it was three little pieces of a lobster with vegetables. The quantity of this starter was quite disappointing, nevertheless it was tasty. The wine , we had a glass of white from the area was fabulous. The service was "impeccable" and with a nice smile.
It was a beautiful experience and I was ready to forgive the minimalistic lobster salad :)

The food here was simply stunning all around - presentation, smell and taste. We picked the 7-course tasting menu for our dinner and, as it happened, we picked the opposite dish from each other for each course. Despite the mighty 18 dishes between ourselves, we pretty much cleaned our plates ... Top marks to the chef and his team who are clearly hugely talented and passionate about their cooking. Each dish was a piece of art on the plate - a feast to the eyes, the nose and the taste buds (whoever made that amazing avocado dessert and that classic dish pear and chestnut should be awarded with a medal - they were truly a labour of love!). It should definitely be rewarded with a star on the Michelin's list.

it's a Creperie and bar. À break for lunch, we serve salty pancakes and salads. A desire to break the afternoon, you will find in this sweet crepes, ice cream restaurant.
We make a quick stop in this pretty restaurant in the main square of Roussillion. Speedy service and nice prices. Good crepes, salad nothing special.

We enjoyed a light lunch at David during our visit to Roussillon. Located in a local hotel, the staff is nice and easily accommodated us on the outside deck. We had a wonderful Caprese Salad with Buffalo Mozzarella and a neat melon salad with a cantaloupe shell filled with bulgar, feta, mint and cantaloupe. A surprisingly good mixture. Stop on by Restaurant David, it takes you away from the hustle of the tourist crowd.
