Having noted that it was rated the #1 restaurant in Avignon we were keen to try it, so were pleased that our hotel was able to secure us a table given it appears to always be fully booked. Like many others in the area it was relatively small which is good with person only handling all front of house functions.... More

booked to eat here a couple of months before I came to Avignon after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was not disappointed ! The best food I've had all year by far & the service is something that Fou de Fafa should be proud of !

My fiance and I went here on Saturday to end our trip in Avignon off right. We had previously spent 6 nights in Paris where we were SOOOOO sick of the food there. Honestly, I was so disgusted by the thought of food in France after eating bread, bread and more bread for a week that I was desperate for... More

An excellent experience all around. Exceptionally well set up with a very relaxed and calm environment. Our hostess was a particular delight .... And then came the food! Superb! Salad with walnuts - yummy. Pork with apple very, very good, and my wife's Gnocci was excellent. House wine well selected. Terrific value. We are just so glad we were able... More

Eating out when you have a food allergy can be a stressful experience. Seeing the reviews for this restaurant on TripAdvisor and reading that the owners were English, I contacted them in advance of our holiday to ask whether they were able to cater for someone needing wheat-free and gluten-free food. They replied speedily to say that it would not... More

We booked this restaurant as it was highly regarded on trip advisor and also personally recommended to us. The decor and ambiance in the restaurant is lovely and the food was wonderful - we had a delicious salad to start followed by the superb duck. My only criticism would be the service. Though relatively efficient, there is only one lady... More

We went here hoping to make a reservation for later in the week as everyone here said you needed to book, but by utter chance someone had cancelled at the last minute so there was a free table. Hurrah! Small but nice menu which was very good value. Main course was cod with a spicy coconut sauce and camargue rice... More
