Good place for lunch

We ate at this restaurant on the recommendation of the owner of the apartment we rented. It was very good - the burgers are what they are best known for and don't disappoint! The dinner menu was a little less attractive and the sea bass I had was not very good but overall it is worth checking... read more

We ordered from the blackboard outside , the waitress misunderstood completely our order and served the wrong food to each of us, one of our party was then not able to eat the food proffered ( not ordered) Left us disappointed as we chose our restaurant by the choice of food we wanted. The waitress was apologetic and the uneaten... More

After several days of indifferent food in some of the "tourist trap" restaurants in Avignon's main squares (not what we were expecting in Provence!) we finally came upon this little gem in an historic street just a short distance from where we were staying. As non-meat eaters we were aware that our choices might be limited, but we found something... More

I wasn't sure what to expect as I knew that if you wanted great food you have to stay away from the normal tourist restaurants. Anyway we were in a side street with loads of locals and the restaurant and food looked good. The restaurant had a Trip Advisor award. We gave the restaurant a chance and we had the... More

Staff were friendly, they always approached us with a smile. We waited a long time for our food though which was a downer, but once the food came, I forgot about the long wait. Good portions, I ordered the Zinzolin burger since I'm a huge burger lover. Was delicious even though it lacked salt in my opinion. What I loved... More

A little bit away from the touristic centre square of Avignon is the rue des Teinturiers. A string of small restaurants and bars with Le Zinzolin almost at the end. We had heard about the place and decided to have lunch there. A very nice experience; friendly and correct service on a small terrace full of local French people. We... More

we needed someplace late - welcoming and friendly - we had just fine rather tasteless fish and nice vegetables - the street is worth going to just for its antiquity and the canal - quiet non-touristy .. that makes it worth it too

This restaurant is located on a great street with old watermills along a canal. Lots of restaurants, bars and an overall lively atmosphere that does not feel very touristy as it is away from the main Avignon sights. The service was friendly and attentive throughout the meal and the food was DELICIOUS!!! The gnocchi with cheese and spinach that my... More

I had dinner there last night. As a solo diner I was made to feel very comfortable. The waitress helped me translate the menu and I choose the pasta dish of the day. It was simply prepared and exactly what I was looking for. The service was good and the ingredients were fresh and tasty. I also loved being I... More
