Our Christmas shopping in Avignon had gone on 'til nightfall. We began back in the direction of our parked car but got hungry shortly after starting off. My partner spied the sign of a tapas restaurant that led us across a tiny place, through an...More

A rather contemporary decor with excellent food. We were quite impressed with the pairings of some tastes that were sometimes unusual together. Nice house wine. A bit difficult to find as it's just OFF the street tucked back sharing a patio area with another restaurant.

The food is good but not exceptional: above average. Service is slow. I have been to better restaurants in Avignon.

We dined here after seeing all of the positive comments on this site. We were disappointed with most of our meal. My risotto was undercooked and I could not eat it. My mother enjoyed her fish entree but the accompaniment was too spicey to eat....More

A delicious restaurant at affordable prices near the center of Avignon. Service was extremely good. The waitresses came by quite often to check if everything was alright and were very polite and always smiling (something rare in France). I would recomend you order the crème...More
