My daughter and I ordered the spring menu, several wonderful courses, each one perfectly executed. The recommended wine was a perfect match. The service was incredible. We ate on the outside patio and it was a great evening.

We dined at lunchtime and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service is outstanding and the food was amazing. I loved the retractable awning that kept the bright sun from heating us up too much.

Set next to Avignon's magnificent Palace of the Popes, Restaurant Christian Etienne is a divine dining destination with sweeping views of the city and of the Rhone valley. Michelin-starred chef Christian Etienne is passionate about food, and his seasonal menu – themed on tomatoes in summer, truffles in winter, asparagus in spring and mushrooms in autumn – has been inspired by the kitchens of his mother and grandmothers. This is a sensational spot for meals with a view, and the food certainly lives up to the restaurant's stunning setting. Etienne's signature dish is the roasted lobster claws served with asparagus and a confit of fresh ginger root and sesame seeds, and the restaurant has a superb Cote du Rhone-led wine list.
