We were recommended to Fou de FaFa by other visitors in our hotel and we were not disappointed. Lovely decor, very spacious seating. They have taken care not to squeeze too many tables in. A superb meal where all flavours came through individually, beautifully presented. The pace of service was perfect, we did not feel rushed. A wonderful meal at... More

I was here with my wife. One day stop in Avignon on our way to Catalunya. We found this place on trip advisor. When we reached the place it was fully booked, but we got lucky and a couple cancelled last minute. Don't test your luck like we did and remember to book!!! The menu is small, but with all... More

My wife and I ate dinner here in July this year while on holiday. We booked by email which was replied to very promptly. When we arrived we were made to feel very welcome indeed. The food was fantastic as was the wine. All in all a great night.

We had a very nice time here for lots of reasons. The lady co-owner is a fantastic host who has a wonderfully calming demeanour about her; she is informative without patronizing e.g. 'I don't know if you've discovered this area yet but this wine....'. We had the carpaccio of vegetables and gazpacho to start with, both of which were nicely... More

We arrived in Avignon late and after a quick scan of trip advisor set of to find a restaurant. We came across Fou de Fafa but after reading the reviews and its number 1 ranking on trip advisor thought we would have no hope of getting a table without a reservation. We asked anyway and to our surprise they had... More

We chose this restaurant because of the excellent reviews it has received and were certainly not disappointed. We booked via email, receiving a very fast response and were really looking forward to the occasion. We were given a warm welcome and our aperitifs arrived quickly. We waited a little time for the starter and main course but they were cooked... More

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

My husband and I visited this restaurant last night after reading all the reviews. We booked ahead as we were visiting from Sydney. We weren't sure what to expect so we we pleasantly surprised by how simple, fresh and delicious our meals were. The highlights were the gazpacho, jamon melon salad, duck breast with raspberry sauce and the pistachio chocolate... More
