A real treat in Avignon

I booked on the basis of the reviews on Trip Advisor and I must say we were not disappointed. Perhaps they gave us such an excellent table by the balcony because we had booked so far in advance.

We had lunch set menu. For those who are have small appetite, it's really good value. Each dish surprise you how amazing it is. We love it a lot. They also serve homemade bread, which is great.

Lovely terrace overlooking the main square below with good ambience and food and wine to match. We chose the tasting menu with matching wine and weren't disappointed (although we were poorer) at the end of a super evening.

The setting is pleasant; an outdoor patio facing a painted wall on one side and potted herbs on another. The menu is a selection of three menus: the tomato menu, the lobster menu, and a third menu I couldn't get the waiter to explain to me. We don't speak French and he did not really want to explain the third... More

You have to really like tomatoes to order this menu as every course from starter to dessert consists of tomato in some form. Although a speciality of the chef, there were many other choices on the menu. I chose the tomato and was glad that I experienced it but, having tasted it, would probably not choose it again. The staff... More

Of all restaurants (michelin-stared and recommended) this is one of the biggest dissapointment EVER! Upon arriving you are faced with a completely outdated interior and furniture. We had dinner on the terrace. First they wanted to seat us in the back, and when we asked if we could sit in the front where there were 3 tables free with better... More

Definitely worth a visit. Good points: - Interesting tomato menu if a little contrived when we came to the sweet. - Courtyard setting in the middle of a beautiful city. - Unpretentious chef who clearly likes to chat with his customers. - Good place to go if it looks like rain as the rain canopy automatically comes over at the...

It was a steaming hot day so we picked the special tomato menu for lunch. The dishes were all well prepared with the freshest of ingredients, including chicken, lamb and fish. Whilst the tomatoes were the star, the creativity and care in preparation elevated the plates. The dishes didn't only look great, they also tasted so great that we kind... More

This is a dining experience. Come with an empty stomach. The food and service were superb. Nothing is forgotten and no detail is overlooked. Food quality and presentation is world class. The staff are brilliant. The chef also wanders around the tables during the evening having a chat a asking about the food. Brilliant. It's not cheap but what the... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by a friend. Had a little difficulty finding it. But was I glad I did. It was an eating experience. Wonderful food and great service. The owner-chef was even gracious enough to come out to see if we enjoyed our meal. We did...
