On a warm summer night, eating out in a small city square against the backdrop of a floodlit medieval church is what holidays are all about.

Staff were turning away a succession of would-be patrons so this is clearly a successful operation. The menu is probably more "provencal" than most on offer in Avignon.

Service is friendly but on the slow side of casual, and the waitresses seemed reluctant to bring our bill when asked. Even so, we'll remember this more vividly than meals enjoyed elsewhere at twice the price.

This was not our first visit to L'Epicerie and the fact we have come back say a great deal. The food is pretty decent, a varied selection of local specialities, well cooked and nicely presented, also plenty of it, good stuff and very tasty, perhaps not as adventurous as some of the places we have visited but none the less very enjoyable. Service at L'Epicerie is very good, efficient, helpful and at all times pleasant.

L'Epiceries main selling point is its location, it is a highly attractive and atmospheric cobblestone square facing onto a large church, it is at all times a nice place to be but after dark this place really has something, it is wonderful atmospheric and has a real Provencal feel, a cable lit dinner in every sense, very romantic! I guess this is what you pay for, its not cheap but considering the whole ambience/experience it's not unreasoanble. It's also worth mentioning that this is a family friendly spot, somewhere where you can take children to dinner and this is the norm. All in all, a very worthwhile evening.

We stumbled over this place for lunch whilst wandering around Avignon's old town. Food and service both excellent in a stunning setting that couldn't be more French. There are hundreds of cafes and bars in the adjacent squares that are much more expensive and offer much lower quality food -taking a walk into the old town to somewhere like this is well worth it!

We walked by this place during the day and thought it was a casual cafe. Our hotel recommended it to us one night for dinner and we were very impressed with the food and the service.

First the service: very good, very attentive without hovering.

The food was excellent. We started with the Italian salad that was big enough for two or more people. My husband ordered the steak and he claims it was as good as a Morton's filet.

I had the cod over mashed potatoes. The fish was very good.

And the view....be sure to ask for a table facing the church.

Situated in a church courtyard away from car traffic, this wonderful cafe is one of our favorites worldwide. On a balmy evening you will sit outside under the stars and enjoy fresh produce from the local area in generous quantity, not cooked pretentiously (no Michelin stars here) but with rustic flavour and colour. If you have never been before try the tasting plate. Enjoy.
