Delighted with the food, wines and service all five star. Ate here two consecutive evenings during a four night stay in Avignon. Staff very helpful and attentive. Very reasonable prices for food and wine. Salmon and mango starter together with Duck confit both finger licking good!

I can't speak more highly of this charming restaurant. The staff were delightful and helped us match perfectly wines to our meals. The cheese plate was just amazing and the chicken main meal was probably one of the best meals I've ever eaten. Oh and don't skip dessert either. Just a really excellent find!

This resto has its menu and wine list scribbled on a black board - there's no printed anything. I had hard time reading wine list (extensive!) on the board, so I asked the bald thin waiter for the print. He got irritated, banged the board few inches closer and stormed off. When I told him that I still can't read... More

Excellent restaurant close to the main attractions in Avignon but slightly off the beaten track. Great food, slick service, casual atmosphere and comfortable ambience. Booked a table for 8pm and dined with family (17 and 11) who all enjoyed the food and atmosphere. An excellent stop off after the sites, not expensive, but a good way to spend the evening.

This is the perfect place to unwind after a long day wandering the streets of Avignon. The cheese selection and wine list is superb. I would highly recommend it. The staff is friendly and is happy to provide an English menu.

"Cozy" and "charming" are appropriate descriptors for this restaurant. The menu features mostly dishes involving some variety of cheese or other. The tartiflette was very rich but tasty; the chicken was also very good. The staff is friendly and knowledgable; the wines are affordable and offer an impressive variety for the size of restaurant. Off the beaten path and worth... More

Went here for a business dinner. It was the third visit and again wasn't disappointed. Great meal and service with a very relaxed atmosphere. Had the Camembert fondue with cold meats, potatoes and bread with a beautiful bottle of local Ventoux wine. Perfect.

Not a lot is open for dinner on Monday evenings in Avignon, so we were very fortunate to have stumbled upon La Vache à Carreaux. The staff were very nice, and dinner and dessert were delicious. We both had the duck entree with a glass of wine each, followed by the mi cuit au chocolat (lava cake) and espresso. The... More

La Vache à Carreaux is not easy to spot, unless you know about it. Which we did, thanks to the owner of the B&B we were staying at and who suggested that we eat there. You walk past the synagogue, past Place Jerusalem and, after a maze of alleys, you get to Rue Peyrollerie. Once inside the restaurant, you can't... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend, and we enjoyed our meal so much we went again the following night. Very friendly and chatty staff. We had two different salads on different nights, plus I had a half Camembert cooked in garlic and white wine. My wife particularly liked her red berry crumble, which was nicely judged to... More
