An amazing and friendly wine bar in the heart of Avignon. We were searching for a nice place to eat dinner and we were really lucky. Friendly staff and very tasty food. We ordered the assortment of cheeses accompanied by a bottle of wine. It was enough for 2 people, tasty and with a lot of variety. We also were... More

Friendly and reasonably priced, it offered just what we wanted - a stylish but informal interior, friendly English-speaking service (the menu in English particularly welcome, just so as to be sure...), tasty little platefuls and a marvellous pudding to share, and a bottle of excellent local wine.

Just one waiter. Plus I have to say we struck out on 2 of 4 dishes. It's hard to mess up on a cheese and steak. Beware of the fish of the day it was awful. But how do you ask questions when you feel lucky to be served.

After having spent a week in the Côte d'Azur, being exposed to anything but the best service on the planet, this place came as a really pleasant surprise. The food was amazing, we had a cheese plate for a start, and then shared a chèvre salad and a Provence style fish, and both were absolutely delicious. Pity we are only... More

We arrived a bit worried given the mixed reviews, but that quickly went away as the food was amazing, service was great (at least on French standards :)) and the wines were good (strangely I thought the food was better than the wines...). We had an excellent cheese platter, a delicious white fish and tomato dish and a chèvre salad,... More

A great French restaurant with excellent food and drink options. We had lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Knowing very little French our waiter assisted us with our choices. Highly recommended option a little off the Main Street in a quant little courtyard in Avignon.

Some nights we like to take three courses, other nights we like to drink nice wine and share some fine cheese and meats. If you like the later...... AOC is the place to be. The staff are so good in helping you to choose from the many fine wines. They ask for your budget and recommend the best wines in... More

Yesterday we said we had the best value meal in France at "New Ground" well today's lunch was just as good. The Plat du Jour was Salmon baked in FILO pastry with vegetables. The vegetables were superb with carrot, snow peas, tomato, and potato on a pesto base with the salmon cooked to perfection in a crispy pastry, yum. The... More

We rated thus restaurant highly because the one person operated experience was efficient, attentive, and a superb value. The wine selection was extensive and well referenced by the operator. The food was delectable and our group of 14 was easily managed without any reduction in expected good service. Rick was consistently attentive and his recommendations were spot- on for each... More
