Having traveled extensively for almost 50 years through Europe, Asia and the Middle East, my two experiences at Christian Etienne have been the most memorable. Avignon is one of Europe's most charming historic cities and the restaurant is located overlooking the main square and the Palais du Papes. The decor is fine and understated and the attention to detail is... More

Let me first start off my saying I loved the decor and the people were attentive and friendly. I also want to add that I consider myself quite the foodie after extensive traveling over the world and dining in many 5 star restaurants . Advice here is not to listen to your waiter . Not sure if he was trying... More

Four of us went for lunch and all ordered the tomato tasting menu (seven small courses all made with tomato). It was 75 Euros per person. The service was outstanding, the decor relaxed, the staff laid back (the chef is hands-on and came out take orders and pose for pictures). The food was delicious and creative and the amount of...

We had an excellent meal here, in a lovely 14/15th century conversion. Greeted by Chef Ettiene, and treated to a glass of Laurent Perrier on the house, the welcome made us feel very special. The tasting menu was epic. The food was well executed, inventive and presented with elegance. It was delicious. Service was non intrusive, discreet and attentive. We... More

We like good food as you can see from my other assessments on Trip Advisor and regularly visit 1-2 Michelin Star Restaurants. OK it was our fault that we arrived too early at the restaurant, as it only opens 19:30. This was also clearly specified during the reservation, but I am getting old and I messed it up and still...

We lunch at this wonderful restaurant with our daughter and her boyfriend. The food was fantastic and not at all pretentious. The staff were very attentive. The wine list was very good. The set midi lunch was very good value.

Great location next to Avignon's top attraction (do not miss the Popes Palace) with lovely terrace seating and outstanding food. As is true with Michelin starred restaurants it is not cheap - but service is amazing and the food and wine excellent

Some michelin starred restaurants can sometimes feel a little unwelcoming due to overly serious staff and ultra formal settings. Christian Etienne is the complete opposite of this. The staff and surroundings put you at ease as soon as you enter the place and a personal greeting from the man himself showd straight away that the whole place is set up... More

Came here for dinner with reservations made few months ahead. The place was easy to find as it is located next to the palace. The owner Mr Etienne came out to welcome us and despite his poor spoken English, he tried very hard to communicate with us and thanked us for spending the evening at his restaurant. We ordered from... More
