We had one of our best meals ever in France at this restaurant. The atmosphere was peaceful and relaxed. The service was impeccable. The food was honestly prepared and delicious. Highly recommended.

“An amazing night!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I obviously can't speak for everyone as we all have different tastes, but for me this was an absolutely amazing night. The front of house hostess is flawless making every table feel as though they are the only guests in the restaurant. The food is delicious I had the salmon tartare and the lamb main, my friend had the chicken main and the Bonoffee pie for desert all were amazing. A perfect night made special with perfect service and delicious food. Have I made it clear I liked it? ....... Good :)

“ok, but no so local”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

nice place but you don't feel in Provence as you have so many tourists, specialy english speaking ones. I understand they really like the food, good but too much english cooking style to me. If you come to Avignon to discover France, taste french places and savours.

“Simplicity cooked to perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

We decided to stop over in Avignon on our long way down from Manchester to Sicily. Being big foodies we selected this place for dinner based on the reviews on TA.

The restaurant feels personal and one gets the impression to be invited to the owners own home. The menu featured local produce in season cooked to perfection. The texture of each dish was stunning and we will remember this meal and Avignon for a long time. Enjoy your meal!

“A Must Do Restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We only had 2 nights in Avignon and so pleased we were able to eat here. Lovely restaurant run by husband and wife team who both deserve the excellent reviews.Booking is best advised to avoid disappointment.
Our meal was delicious and so very reasonable for the quality. We never felt rushed or neglected despite the hostess working alone in the restaurant The English lady who served us spoke excellent French.
If we ever return we will definately revisit..
Wish it was closer to home.
