We really can't see why this restaurant has such good reviews. We went tonight, Sunday evening and at the beginning of service. We were concerned about the constant beeping of a microwave in the kitchen!!! Not without reason, when we could see two from our...More

Great service in this small restaurant in the center of Avignon'. We had a soup os pistou, a local recipe and it was great. The profiteroles dessert was memorable. Loved the food and the friendliness of the service

Not an extensive menu, but that means they do everything well. Portions were enormous and the food was superb. Service was excellent. Would advise you sit outside, because there's not much room inside and you are right next to the kitchen. Highly recommend.

"Le Petit Gourmand" is a typical french food small restaurant providing home made meals cooked by the Chef close to you as if you were at home. 16 seats inside and double possible outside during the beautiful season (outside terrace here may be used more than 6 months per year from Easter).We have a special meal called "Secca d'Entrevaux" (thin slices of dried beef with pesto, potatoe in a owen, hot melted cheese and mesclun). Other "must": fresh pastas with truffle, or fresh raviolis with foie gras inside and a few desserts that you may find all in our "Café Gourmand".The rest of the dishes are proposed according to the season.
