The menu is exquisite and all the options we tried were simply delicious. The service was unusually friendly and highly qualified. Hint: the place is small and very popular so reservations are recommended.

It's a must when in Avignon

What wonderful food. Quite a small restaurant - counted 26 covers. Greeted by Antonia and shown to our reserved table. Lots of room around the tables so very comfortable. Selected a Cotes du Rhone White; Antonia knew the vineyard that had produced what turned out to be a by nice wine. Made our choices from a quite small but interesting selection. Had an 'amuse bouche' whilst awaiting our starters. For main I had filet mignon of pork in a mushroom sauce with stir fried vegetables and crushed potatoes. It was excellent. All the food is prepared and cooked by Russel, so the restaurant is a real family affair. Saw quite a few people,turned away as the restaurant was fully booked. Would highly recommend eating here but book first. Not open for lunch.

Fantastic traditional French food in the centre of Avignon. Extremely attentive and friendly service from start to finish in an intimate setting. Would highly recommend.

The vibe is just as important as the meal.
We were made to feel at home and special guests in a small, intimate space. The four of us felt pains were taken to ensure our night was perfect. The food... We all had the pastry parcels with jambon, fromage, and onion jam for entree. Simple and perfect. Chicken dishes and duck for the plats. Mouthwatering. The suggested red wine, Camille Carvan from memory, was superb and quite reasonably priced. Our hostess was the lone staff on floor in a full house, but we never felt ignored. I
Make sure you book ahead. Many people who didn't were very politely turned away.
