Great location, great view , great food (three courses for 20 Euros) ,great wine and waiters with a sense of humour. Sometimes you are lucky and everything works. I think this restaurant and location would work even on a bad day. Put it on your list of must visits when in Chateau Neuf du Pape

We sat out on the terrace, which has an amazing view over the surrounding countryside. We ordered a platter of starters/small bites (foie, smoked salmon, etc.) and every item on it was really nicely done. Service was fairly poor for a nice place (we live outside the States and are very used to the European pace of service - that wasn't the issue here.) It felt disorganized and was an odd mix of very slow (to get anyone to the table) and then very rushed when actually AT our table.

So wow what an amazing view from this restaurant. Just amazing. We were lucky to sit on the terrace and could see the lovely hills and vineyards. Gorgeous. We were there with our 9month old and we were also delighted to discover the high chair that the restaurant has. The food was lovely, we didn't have the plat du jour as it didn't sound yummy, but opted for smoked salmon to start and then the lamb. Delicious.

The down side was that the service was achingly slow. We arrived before three large tables and somehow were served after them. It was clear that there weren't quite enough staff as people seemed to wait a while to have tables cleared etc And certainly when you have a baby it can be difficult to sit back sip wine and relax.

Anyway definitely go for the view if nothing else!

We were lucky to sit at the best table on the terrace overlooking the entire valley without making a reservation. The weather was perfect (Mid April), and the service was very good. The food was nothing to freak out over, but if you just go for the view and the experience, you will not be disappointed. Also, what you get for the price is really quite good.
