“Tasty provencal food with a charming view on the garden”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

We have been going to this retaurant for the past 10 years every year. We live abroad and use our house as a second residence, a few miles away from the restaurant.I have read the few comments, and could agree that an extra smile would make the difference. Having said that, the food is tasty and price is reasonable. I have tried many restaurants around and can vouch for their quality . The garden is well kept and it is always a pleasure to eat outside on the balcony.

Most of the times we go there, the restaurant is full, so, give it a try and most important, do not hesitate to let the chef and his wife know if you are not satisfied. I personally believe that our feedback helps the restaurant improve on their weaknesses

I married what we refer to a "cordon bleu" in french and we always liked their food...:)

“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

In August 2011 we had dinner at the restaurant “Les Jardins De La Livrée” in Villeneuve-Les-Avignon.
The terrace is nice, situated in a quiet environment. The cuisine is typically Provençal : lamb, soupe de poisson, pied pacquets, pâté de foie gras, maigret de canard, etc. The dishes on the menu are reasonably priced.
But our experience was not a positive one.
Let’s start with… the starters. The soupe de poisson was nothing special : there were no pieces of fish in it (rather odd for a fish soup), the dish was not seasoned at all and it was not warm. This soup was followed with a salade italienne that tasted indifferent, had no seasoning and almost no vinegar.
Our main course, maigret de canard, was overcooked (it should be served rare, saignant or rosé). The side dish wasn’t warm at all. Even when we asked to reheat the dish, it came back from the kitchen only lukewarm.
Same story when the dessert arrived, a Banon goat cheese. It too was served much too cold. Oddly enough, we had been asked to choose our dessert at the beginning of our meal – this should have given them ample time to prepare it to perfection.
On top of all of that, the service was distant and cool. Both the owner and the waitress were not kind at all. They didn’t ask if the food was good - even a simple “bon appétit” was too much for them.
We had hoped to discover a nice new restaurant, but are sad to report that this place was a real disappointment.
