When you wish to experience a little of Italy in France, this is the cafe to go to. Although, I found the risotto pasty, they had one salad on offer (which cannot be ordered as an entre, only a meal) which was divine. Order a...More

It is one of the nicer restaurants in the plaza. The staff were very friendly and welcoming to all nationalities. We went 4 times in the week we were in Avignon. The wine choices are good as is the beer, very cold on hot day....More

Stopped for coffee and cake. Ordered Le Cafe + que gourmand (coffee with the best of the lot), an assortment of miniature cakes served on a plater with cream and chocolate sauce. Just Devine. Service friendly and prompt.

Very nice place for Lunch and dinner, their dessert selection is excellent so is the cocktails menu. Great location, just next to palais du pape, so after an interesting history lesson you can relax in this restaurant. Would i visit this place again ? Absolutely!!!

We ordered the oyster and goose liver for appetizer then lamb and La Bulle for dessert. Everything taste above par. I will definitely recommend to my friends and family. Love the service too.

Had a tomato and mozzarella starter, and a steak. Everybody else seemed to be drinking wine or soft drinks, but decided I would prefer a beer. Not something that they actually had on the menu card, but they were able to offer an Heineken. The...More

Came here on a local recommendation but it was the worst meal we've had in Avignon. Slow service - 50 minutes to get our food, surly waiter, wrong order (for 1 of the meals) and terrible food. For a burger and steak we paid €46....More

We stopped for a bit of afternoon tea. Very interesting decor inside and shared toilets between men and women (a bit strange ). Ordered 2 café viennois and a jug of water with a raspberry sorbet and a meringue dessert. Took ages to be served...More

Did not eat here but just stopped for drinks in the evening. Not the cheapest but worth it. Sat on the covered terrace with heaters and blankets for the legs if needed. Resto itself looked busy with locals which is a good sign
