Location, location, location... I had tried to reserve this restaurant only the night before and received an email back to say they were full. The day itself they were kind enough to call me back to say a table had become available. Funny enough they couldn't locate our reservation when we arrived but were shown to our table a few... More

Dear, Effectively, I remind your arrival, your booking was not written on the planning by the person who called you back, and we are sorry about that. Despite the fact that we do offer quality fruits juices from « Avignonnaise » Company Kookabara, you asked for fresh orange juice and you had to receive the Fresh juice like we usually... More

Unbelievable. Stunning gorgeous food that was equally delicious. Great Service. Multiple courses at a reasonable pace. Thought I would never eat again after so much food - but of course I did!

We opted for the full degustation menu and were only at our 2nd course 2 hours into the meal. I mean I recognize that this is the way of life in Southern France but we've done 8-10 course Michelin meals in other parts of Europe before and it's never been this long. Granted that we could have communicated our how... More

Dear, We remind well your arrival, you were at the most beautiful table, the 25 on the corner of the terrasse. I really do not understand, cause 2 dishes in two hours is just impossible. Morever that it was an uncommon earliest finished service, Our maitre d’hotel spent approximatively 10 minutes per table to explain the cheeses tray, and I... More

Our first and only night in Avignon arriving mid afternoon on the train from Paris. I will write about our funky hotel later. Beautiful sunshine streaming onto the elevated restaurant terrace next the Palais des Papes. A choice of two set menus, Menu Tomates or Menu du Palais. With summer in mind we chose the Menu Tomates and were not... More

Already how very disappointing for a Michelin star restaurant. When the menu came, NOT A SINGLE STAFF explained how it worked. We had to ask and figured the menu... More

June is tomato time in Provence so what better way to celebrate the tomato than with a 7-course menu using about 11 different types of tomato? The food was excellent and the service was good too.

We walked to this terrace restaurant next to the Palais de Pope for lunch this last Monday. All tables were empty except for one. A guide had suggested that we try this restaurant for lunch because of its high quality French food. We greeted the Maitre'd in French and asked for a table for two, please, all in French. He...

This is a very smart restaurants on a terrace next to the Palais de Papes. Had a wonderful supper there and ordered the tomato menu which was seven courses of amazing tomato recipes. The only thing we weren't sure about was the tomato pudding/desert. Otherwise delicious food.
