Great staff, wonderful wines and food.

We were lucky to get in. We arrived early and there happened to be a table for three available. The restaurant was recommended by the desk person at our hotel and he promised we'd not be disappointed. We weren't! Food combinations were modified to match our requests.

We were lucky to get in. We arrived early and there happened to be a table for three available. The restaurant was recommended by the desk person at our hotel and he promised we'd not be disappointed. We weren't! Food combinations were modified to match our requests. Local, and relatively inexpensive, wine was incredible. The place is rustic and charming.... More

The place is nicely decorated, with a traditional but modern style, good music and friendly staff. It is absolutely perfect for having dinner. My girlfriend and me had an amazing experience and were both really happy. The food and wine were excellent, especially the cheese. We had the melted camembert with garlic and white wine, the salad and the cheese... More

We thought that this might be a special restaurant, tucked into the old city. Very cute little venue, with a lively crowd. But the food was average. Portions were large, but with no special presentation. Salad had lots of lettuce, but cheese melted on old toast wasn't appealing. Wine selection was limited. Probably better for lunch. nothing special ...

I probably overdid it by having chicken in cheese after the plate of fromages vieux as a starter, but the latter, all 12 of them & mostly unknown even to this 'fromagophile' was fabulous. The chateauneuf du pape wasn't bad either! Friendly service & very good atmosphere.

Definetly one of the best restaurants without a Michelin star that I have ever been to. The bottle of wine we got seemed a bit off so the waiter brought us another without a fuss. The food is incredible. Duck cooked to perfection and melts in your mouth. Definetly a locals gem that does not cater to the hordes of... More

We went for dinner and were pleased we did. recommended by our B&B as well as a guidebook, but unclear if was a wine bar or restaurant. it is a bit of both. Great wine selections by the glass and defer to their choices. Great cheese and other selections, but all made to go with wine so heavier fare -... More

Well located in a quiet side street behind the Palais des Papes, this restaurant/bar specialises in cheese and wine. If you like those things, you won't be disappointed! The menu contained a good choice of delicious and inventive cheese-based dishes using local produce and the wine list featured several wines from the region. Staff were capable and patient and although... More

We just happened upon this restaurant while filling in time for the Palais des Papes light show. What a great little find! the staff in this restaurant made room for us, because we didn't have a booking, and they also entertained us with their banter. The food was very god, as was the wine they waiter recommended. This was an... More
