We had the lunch menu for 35 euros. The first course was disappointing but the second course and dessert were excellent with seasonal ingredients and refined flavors. Great value for money.

We dined at Christian Etienne for dinner one of the evenings that we stayed in Avignon. The restaurant itself is beautiful. It appears that it was built into part of an old castle. It is very close to the Pope's palace, so it was probably part of the same structure at one time. When we looked at the menu, we... More

The food was excellent, well prepared and innovative. The wine recommendations were also good, as were aperitiv and digestive. The setting is charming, on a terrace right next to the Pope's palace. The service was very friendly and discreet.

We had a marvelous evening at Christian Etienne. This is a special restaurant. Christian greets you at the door and his entire staff makes your dinner very special. The restaurant is partially historic with a wall and ceiling dating back centuries. What is new enhances the old. Tables are well spaced and the noise level low. there are 3 tasting... More

This restaurant deserves its Michelin rating, if not a higher one. Service immaculate, menu priced accordingly $$$$, and well worth the fine cuisine.

I went to this beautiful restaurant on a short visit to Avignon. It's location, adjacent to the Palace of the Popes, is ideal and central to the historically vibrant city center. We had a tasting menu. We asked the sommelier to pair wines with each course and she did a fabulous job. Starting with a white Chateau Neuf de Pape... More

Stay away. Four menus to choose from. 75, 80, 90 or the 130$ menu. We chose the 90$ lobster menu. The 2 lobster claws were about 2 inches and very tough. I feel we were taken. People go to other restaurants in avignon as this is not worth the 315 U.S. dollars we spent.

My husband and I were lucky enough to get a spot for lunch (we were able to get in because of a cancellation that day). The food was sumptuous, the service excellent, the surroundings charming and tranquil and the whole meal an experience to be remembered! Make sure to reserve beforehand.
