The sense of taste is the winning in this restaurant. Once the plate gets to you table the aromas are mouth-watering and the flavors are so tastily unexpected.

The wife was similarly delighted with... More

We ate at Metropolitan while we were in Avignon. If we had not been recommended it, we would not have found it. Immediately we knew we wanted to eat there when we spoke to the chef and when we asked about a menu, he said he was still thinking about the menu for dinner, but gave us an idea of... More

Three ways to stumble over this somewhat secluded restaurant: a) you went to visit the great contemporary art exhibition of Collection Lambert... (because it is located in the magical courtyard of this absolutely splendid 18th century hôtel particulier), b) you have heard about it from a friend (quite probable, because anyone would want to return to it) or c) you...
