Do NOT be put off by the rather shabby entrance, which most of all looks like a door to an apartment block. Once you have rung the bell and come upstairs, you are in heaven. Belle Epoque interior, very competent and friendly service, excellent local wines and very tasty menus with small surprises in-between dishes. The cheaper menu at the... More

Went to celebrate granddaughter's 16th birthday. Wonderful service, thoughtful explanation of menu, very accommodating to the one vegetarian in the group. Food was presented beautifully, hot and fresh tasting. Expensive but a celebration. Decor was formal French and nice.

My wife and I and our 5-year old had a 7-course lunch at this famous restaurant. The food was both excellent and unusual. The waitress explained each dish in detail.

I must correct a previous review (of a couple of years ago): this place has changed, for the (much) better ! The setting remains very traditional (some would call it old fashioned), and the service is still very hands-off (you feel fortunate that someone wants to serve...), but the food is great. That is what a restaurant is for: fresh,... More

We spent three days in Avignon and ate here on our third night. We should have come here first. We had made reservations and were brought immediately to our table. Service was excellent with a waitress whose English was fine and helped explain the menu. We orderd al a carte and everything was excellent. If possible get a seat by... More

We had reserved a table at Hiely Lucullus for our first meal during our week's stay in Avignon. The meal was superb. We chose the six course menu option, the highlights being the fish and cheese courses. But. In truth, everything we sampled was excellent. Wine choices were good also, some very reasonably priced. Staff were attentive and professional. It... More

With our relative inexperience of Michelin starred restaurants expectations were high and they were easily met. The dining room was characterful (Art Deco?) and comfortable. We were walk ins and were able to get a table; I found this a little surprising and wondered if the restaurant is well enough promoted or whether people are forgetting three of the great... More

Everything about this restaurant was of an excellent standard and offered great value for the diner. There were several different menus to choose from and they were fine for diners to choose different ones at the same table. We chose the €33 and the €55 and each came with 7 courses. We couldn't fault the food, especially at that price... More

Old fashioned elegance, wonderful food and superb service. It would be easy to overlook this restaurant in the hustle and bustle of Avignon. But it's well worth making the effort to find it.
