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.

Amazing place to enjoy the French cuisine, the waiters were great and knowledgeable and the food was top. Apart from one dish (mushroom soup) that had no salt in it, the rest of the courses were full of flavour and took you down a pleasant...culinary trip. If I'm coming back to Avignon I know where to stop by for an amazing dinning experience.More

This was a wonderful "find". Situated in a side street in Avignon, we had the most wonderful dinner. Great service - the owner was also the waiter - delicious food and wine and a perfect evening. I would highly recommend a visit!

Beautiful prepared seasonal meal, creative and delicious. Server was a little stand offish, but service was flawless with a full house. Reasonable priced for the level and quality of the meal. We enjoyed our dinner and overall experience.

Ambience: quiet place with well-spaced tables on a low traffic road in the centre of town. Every table booked on a Sunday evening. Front of house: the single server was professional and worked hard but the restaurant absolutely needs two staff to manage the tables....Things were that bit too slow - unfortunate. The restaurant could also stagger start times more as they had nearly all tables arrive within 45 minutes and this created a bottleneck with some courses. Food: ‘interesting’ would be a way of explaining the food but sometimes the chef seemed to try and pull something off that did not quite work? His desserts were lovely - as well as the inventive tomatoes in toffee. The cheese ‘course’ seemed to be a miss with a lite goats cheese served with a oily focaccia and a very strong olive mixture. Another ‘interesting’ was risotto with coffee - no doubt some would love it but not to my taste. Everyone got the same dish as there was (basically) just one menu - a nice idea.More

Price fixe is nice so you get to try different things. Presentation was impressive but taste was bland/average. They need 2 waiters for the size of the place. There were 30 customers and only 1 waiter. I wouldn't go again.

Fixed menu is interesting and delicious. We would go again if we were here longer! The Guinea fowl was the best course. What a fabulous evening.

One of the best meals of my south of France trip! I made a last minute reservation on the day of using online booking system earlier this week. We had dinner on a Monday night so it wasn’t completely full but busy enough and impressed...there was only one guy (the owner) managing hosting and Waiter duties. Anyway the meal was delicious from start to finish. We went for the chef recommendation, which was extra (lobster with ravioli). Worth the upgrade! Lobster was perfectly poached. But everything we had was good on the tasting menu for the time we were there. Great price as well. Highly recommend if you can get a table!More

Fantastic restaurant. One of the best price fixed meals we have had in France. From the starters to the dessert, this restaurant was truly a gem. Great service. Really enjoyed our meal and would definitely return.

I made a reservation at this restaurant AND confirmed it and upon arrival on the day of the reservation, the owner showed me my name written in his reservation book with a line through it even though I CONFIRMED the reservation on the phone prior....He had ABSOLUTELY no explanation for why the reservation was cancelled or by whom. And when I asked that he honor the reservation anyways given that my name could not have mysteriously appeared in his book, he refused. Clearly clearly unprofessional and you should NOT rely on the word of whoever answers your call and takes your reservation !More

One of my favorites that I return to every time I am in Avignon. Everything is great - the service, the wine recommendations and of course the food: made with fresh and seasonal ingredients. We chose the vegetarian menu. They also adjust for vegan preferences....Creativity, beauty and taste, all in one place!More

The lone maître d'/waiter/sommelier coped admirably with managing all the diners, but ultimately it did result in some delays. The limited menu included dishes which were well executed and with well balanced flavours. The canapé and amuse-bouche were top class and we especially liked the...excellent monk fish mains served with razor clam. Definitely worth a visit.More

Absolutely fantastic meal! Low key facade and interior but the meal exceeded all expectations. Staff explained each course and were friendly and accommodating. If you are in the area, stop in. You will not be disappointed.

We visited on a Saturday for dinner (reservation absolutely required!) and had a very good evening. We both ordered the vegetarian menu, a rarity in French restaurants and were not disappointed. The vegetarian menu was very good, very imaginative and well put together. We asked...for a wine recommendation as well and the red wine was very good. Service was sometimes a bit stiff but otherwise very friendly and efficient. Our hotel warned us about the additional charge for the one meat dish, but we felt that the menu was clear about the surcharge. Also, since we took the vegetarian menu, it did not apply to us. Overall a very good restaurant among many very good restaurants in Avignon.More
