Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited this place for dinner whilst in Avignon. I was pleased to be able to get in as a walk in, especially considering this place is so well-regarded. The food was very tasty and the service was prompt and efficient. Highly recommend!

Fou de Fafa was recommended by our Chateauneuf du pape wine tour guide and I am so glad we had the opportunity to eat here! The owner is from London and the night we had dinner she was both host and waitress!. She is super...friendly, and made us feel welcome right away. The food was absolutely gorgeous and so delicious! My sister and I enjoyed our time in this quaint cozy restaurant and the lovely village of Avignon. If you go, email the restaurant for a reservation as I don't believe you can make them online.More

The restaurant was cosy yet light and airy. The food and wine were excellent as were the two wines we tried. Service was attentive and friendly without being intrusive. Value for money was excellent for this quality. I would recommend unreservedly.

Fantastic experience from start to finish. Received a lovely reply to my email reservation. Arrived for our meal and was greeted with such a lovely welcome. The food was exceptional. I had trout starter. The skin on the fish was so crispy. Main was lamb,...cooked to perfection. The accompliments with the lamb were original and so tasty. Finished with a lemon creme brulee. A lovely light finish to an outstanding meal. Please don't missed out on this gem of a restaurant.More

This is a small restaurant owned and run by an English couple who have lived in Avignon for 20 years. The wife is the server and she is delightful, very friendly and sharing. My husband and I had the 3 course option with a bottle...of wine. Everything was delicious. We were not rushed so that we could enjoy our food and the ambiance of this lovely place. I would recommend making a reservation as it seems to be full most evenings.More

This is a gem of a restaurant and not to be missed if visiting Avignon. The food was delicious, the service immaculate and the ambiance delightful. Antonia, the hostess, is very charming and her husband is behind scenes doing the cooking. It is small intimate...restaurant so you need to book in advance as when we were there Antonia was turning away so many people. This restaurant is a must and totally unique.

My wife and I had dinner on aSaturday evening and the experience was perfect. All of the food served was of very good quality and reasonably priced. The owner/hostess was very helpful and keen to please her diners. Although she could clearly speak excellent English...she was patient with us when we tried conversing in our rusty French. Highly recommendedMore

On a quiet pedestrian road just south east of the centre. On our evening - half of the diners were French and half non-French. Quiet music in the background and tables spaced so nice and quiet inside and out. Owner/waitress speaks English and French. Service...pleasant and timely. Food excellent - a limited number to choose from so the chef can be sure to make them well. Websites shows types of things that might be on offer - very nicely cooked and presented. All in all recommended.More

This place is truly special. It is a small, unpretentious restaurant with truly spectacular cooking and a friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable hostess who makes everything shine. Antonia speaks English (she IS English), but is just as happy to let you practice your French and listen graciously....And she knows her stuff. She knows detailed information about the wines and menu ingredients, and her patience and humor put you immediately at a ease. But the food!! The menu was small, but everything we tried was absolutely wonderful. The people at nearby tables were just as smitten as we were. You must reserve. We saw many people turned away as the place was fully booked, and I gather this is the norm. This meal will definitely be one of the most enduring and pleasant memories of our three-week trip to France.More

Fantastic little restaurant (book ahead) with good food from a set menu with several choices. The fish of the day was excellent. Good selection of wine which was reasonably priced.
