Once found, this restaurant seemed an oasis to us - tourists with a limited knowledge of the city of Avignon, and with limited time to research options. We felt fortunate indeed to enter the door below the L’Epice and Love sign and encounter Marie, the owner/operator (also, greeter, interpreter, chef, bon vivant, world traveler, art dealer, etc.). Although the main... More

This atmospheric small restaurant provides a unique experience. We went for dinner after it had been recommended by our hotel, and we weren't disappointed. It was part restaurant and part antique and curio shop, and that was a great combination! The lovely lady owner is super warm and friendly. She waits on the tables (there were only five tables when... More

My mother and I loved this restaurant and its warm, generous hostess while staying a week in Avignon. The food was sublime. We ended up eating dinner here three times! It's a small, intimate place; I recommend a reservation.

Lovely small restaurant with a charming hostess. The menu was very reasonably priced, particularly if you order the entree+plat+dessert combo. The portions were generous and thoroughly delicious. The menu can vary week-to-week. Other diners we spoke to were also very pleased. We were so glad to finally make it there on our last night in Avignon. It was the perfect... More

Great food, great service, convenient location and homely atmosphere! The lady who runs this charming little place is super friendly, happy to help and produces good quality food. My main was cooked just right, meat falling off the bone. Dessert was great too! Super nice cheesecake with berries and berry sauce wth whipped cream. Highly recommend. A warning to travellers:...

We found this place through Yelp and thought it looked like a good place to try. The restaurant is small (maybe 8 tables) so it fills up fast. We had our hotel make us a reservation. The owner is a very nice lady who does the cooking and waits the tables. She speaks very good English for those whose French... More

Food is delicious, home made with local ingredients. Service is great, the decoration is fun (posters from the sixties) and the place has a nice ambience.The entree/main course/cheese plate/dessert combo is 22.50 euros. Great value!

You could probably get away with not booking a table here, but there are only about 8 tables in total so there's no guarantee. There's definitely that dinner-party, rather than restaurant feel and the food is great at really reasonable prices too. A three course meal with wine will cost about €30. The food may not be adventurous, but they... More

Found this little gem by accident and went back 3 times and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. The food and interaction with our fellow diners made it more like having dinner at a friends home, so much so we all met up on our last night in Avignon for one last meal together. Madam, in front of house was fabulous... More
