After travelling for the past two and a half weeks and wanting something more than cafe food we turned to Trip Advisor to help us during our stay in Avignon
We were fortunate to get the last of 5 tables in this delightful little restaurant run by a young husband and wife team. He cooks and she attends to the front of house, beautifully!
Not being fluent in French she was very happy to explain the menu to us and recommended we try the local beer La Cigalette (I liked it, my husband was less enthused, but I'm not a beer drinker usually) as well as recommending a local wine which we both enjoyed immensely
We opted just for mains and dessert and were both very pleased with our choice. My husband had duck in red wine sauce and I chose a Moroccan styled dish of lamb and fig wrapped in a light, crisp cinnamon flavoured pastry. Both meals came with lightly steamed fresh vegetables including roast potatoes with the duck.
We shared our meals and both found each other's choice delicious
We both chose creme caramel for dessert, we've been in France for 8 days and had yet to have dessert - was expecting it to be a little warmer, but again, we both loved it
We enjoyed a lovely conversation with our hostess after the other diners had left, learning about her background and the evolution of their delightful little restaurant which by the way is open seven days a week
One of the regulars popped past whilst we were there, making himself quite at home with another lone diner who was almost finished his meal. Very funny but shows how comfortable he feels in this place
Thank you for a lovely evening
