Reviews / Restaurant

The charming town of Castellane is a popular stop for travelers visiting the famous gorge of Verdon.

 

La Taverne sits right on the pretty central square, with outside tables under umbrellas. It’s one of a number of restaurants in this stretch, but stands out for the number of tables occupied, always a good sign.

 

The menu leans heavily on French and Italian classics, with a whole section devoted to pizza. There are also a number of set menus at varying price levels, ranging $15–35.

 

I tried the green salad and an anchovy pizza with a smoothie, which went down well for $17 total. Service was quick and efficient, and the quality of the food was great for the price.

 

If you order á la carte you will probably spend around $24 for two courses and drink, so stick to the set menu if you are on a budget. It’s a lovely spot to spend a lazy afternoon looking out over the square, so don’t feel like you need to rush off after eating.

 

La Taverne isn’t the most stand-out restaurant in this part of France, but you will get a good, honest meal at a decent price.
