We chose Fou de Fafa, based on its TripAdvisor ranking: 1st out of 440 restaurants in Avignon; we booked via email, and received an immediate confirmation from Russel and Antonia. On the evening of our dinner, we miscalculated the walking time from our hotel to the restaurant, and we arrived about 25 minutes early: we were kindly asked to come... More

It's very quaint. Owner/server is delightful. Regional wines very thoroughly described and recommended. The capresse salad was delightful w local olive oil and pesto. Sesame crusted salmon was excellent. The house banana dessert is scrumptious. Don't miss this dining treat.

We enjoyed a meal here on our last night in Avignon. The service was very friendly and the food was flavoursome and well presented. Bookings are staggered to allow for food to be freshly cooked. This is definitely worth a visit.

The owners are a charming English couple who provide a charming and intimate dining experience. The limit the number of covers per evening so find them as soon as you get there and book a meal with... More

First, we ate here with our daughters, 9 & 11 yrs old, who are adventurous eaters, but this was truly a special and unique meal that may not appeal to most young children. The owner/ host was very welcoming. The environment was very comfortable and the food delicious!

Best dinner we experienced on our vacation to 4 cities! The host (hostess) waited on everyone with great ease. The food was absolutely delicious and perfectly prepared. What we noticed most of all is that they only seat as many tables at a time that they can service expertly. This made all the difference in the world for an amazing... More
