Excellent home cooking and friendly service

As other reviewers have remarked, this is not 'fine dining' but good home cooking at very reasonable prices. Well worth a visit, especially if you are on a tight budget.

Most of the customers were Americans, since it was mentioned in Rick Steve's book. The proprietress spoke pretty good English and did a good job of describing the menu. The prices were pretty low and the food was OK, but not great. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

We had great food in this small, cosy restaurant. The proprietress had lived in US for a while and spoke good English. Popular with locals but very welcoming to us too.

With only an evening in Avignon myself and my girlfriend stopped in at Bar Z nearby for a drink and asked the local bartender a recommendation and he gave us this place. A small restaurant run by a lady with a single chef in the kitchen turning out some pretty amazing foods. The curry squid was amazing and some of... More

All 4 of us were delighted with this lovely small authentic restaurant, which is so different from most other restaurants. The owner/chef is very friendly and explained all dishes into English for us. The food is fresh and very tasty. We highly recommend and hope to go back!

I've been to this restaurant twice now since moving to Avignon, and both times I have thoroughly enjoyed my meal. The lady who runs the restaurant is very warm and friendly, and went through all the dishes for us to explain what they were and how they are served. The food itself was delicious, and was made especially nice as... More

While staying in Avignon, we made reservations at L'Epice and Love on the recommendation of the owner of our B&B. We were warmly received by Maria, the owner. She went over the entire menu with us to ensure we understood the offerings. We had the pork cheeks and the blue cheese tortellini. Both were excellent, and the pork cheeks in... More

This restaurant made our stay in Avignon just that more special and memorable. We visited this place based on Tripadvisor's recommendation and we are so glad we did. We stayed in Avignon for three nights and ate here for 2 of those nights. Service was very personable and the menu, though written in French only, was happily translated into English... More

excellent home-style cooking, but we grew tired after waiting an hour for the final course (desert). By time it arrived we had lost our appetite.
