“Avoid.... overpriced and awful quality”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Okay, so the location is amazing but I suspect that this restaurant is trading on that and isn't worried at all about the quality of the food they are putting out as they don't need anyone to return, there's always a fresh batch of tourists at the door.
Given the amazing produce available in and around Provence, I have no idea how they even found the poor quality ingredients that arrived on my plate. Turbot is an expensive, meaty fish but most of mine was fatty (!) and with very little meat. My husbands starter and main course were average at best. Our meal wasn't cheap but it was so, so disappointing. We left after the main course .
There are many, many amazing (and cheaper) places to eat in Avignon so do yourself a favour and avoid this one.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

On a recent stay in Avignon we enjoyed the wonderful food at this restaurant which is attached to the Hotel Du Palais Des Papes. The choice on the menu was interesting and varied with some set menus of very good value. We had a la carte meals there on two nights straight and it was full of satisfied diners on each occasion. Lunch is also available. Highly recommend.

“Dont go anywhere near !!!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

To be quite honest...this is the worst food I have ever come across. They cant even cook a simple ormlette. It was cold and definatly not cooked.My wife had the salmon. Again cold, rubbery and totally dried out. There are many good restaurants very close ie. just around the corner with lovely views of the Paple palace..etc
