“Gem on Rue Racine”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

A few restaurants on Rue Racine were recommended by our hotel manager. We ventured out without a reservation and found our way to Le Brigadier. We were seated immediately since it was not crowded. My wife ordered crusty goat’s cheese with Serrano ham and eggplant, medallions of monkfish with mushrooms and ham, and gingerbread cake iced with hot chocolate. I tried the crispy salmon/spinach and almond crackers with Parmesan cheese, gratin of potatoes with la brandade de morue (mashed cod). The 3 course meal was 32 euros each; with a bottle of local wine the total came to 109 euros. The meal was quite enjoyable and the service was excellent. The restaurant has a quiet elegance and is a romantic setting. We lingered over the meal for almost three hours, talking with a young couple on an anniversary trip, who generously shared some of their wine. A great evening at a great restaurant. Highly recommended.

“Lovely spot”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

The ambiance here was nicer then many of the restuarants we saw in Avignon. Our food was well prepared and good enough that we returned a second time when friends joined us. In the French tradition we lingered and ate slowly and loved every minute of being there. The service was very good and the gentlemen who served us were very pleasant. We would definitely go back.

“a wonderful find”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

As we wandered the streets late on our first afternoon in Avignon, we stopped to look at the menu of Le Brigadier. A gentleman advised that the restaurant would be open for dinner at 7PM and asked if we would like to make a reservation. We gave him our name and returned to enjoy a wonderful dinner in this beautifully appointed small restaurant just a few blocks off the main square. The meal was a treat from start to finish.

“Excellent dinner on a cold night”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

It was a cold night, and the nicely prepared butternut squash soup really hit the mark. It was very attractively served inside a squash. The other appetizer we had (escargots) was equally good. Nicely prepared scallops for the main course. It was one of the more attractive and formal looking restaurants we visited in Avignon.

“A Real Gem!!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

While visiting Avignon, we were looking for a French restaurant where we could have dinner. A shop keeper (2-3 blocks from the restaurant) and then a couple passing by the restaurant (they had dinner the prior night) both raved about the food & service. The atmosphere was intimate and food exceptional. We placed our name on the reservation list at 6:30pm (restaurant opened at 7pm) and we were glad that we did as the majority of tables (only a few left for later reservations) filled up between 7 & 7:30pm. This restaurant is a must for a relaxed and wonderful dining experience. We were surprised when we had the opportunity to meet the chef who was a young woman - she knew her business!!! We would love to return!
