Very centrally located on Place de l Horloge. Friendly and customs orientated staff. Food is good, moules were extremely fresh, prices affordable. Sit outside on the sun, relax and watch people passing by. Nice restaurant, they have my vote!

We were sceptical of trying this place due to its location in the main square and thought it might be a tourist trap. However we were pleasantly surprised to find it was value for money, offering decent food at decent pricing. We had a pizza and the mussels, not bad at all.

Under no circumstances visit this awful place. We went in December 2016 and found their dog running around including the kitchen andwe thought that was bad but on going to the toilet found dog poo on the stairs and when confronting the owner's they laughed and said it was only a puppy. This place is a serious health hazard and... More

We just wanted a quick lunch so had the plat du jour - steak, chips and wine for less than 10 Euros. All Ok, nothing fancy. Very small restaurant. Only problem is they let their stupid dog have free run and it keeps coming to see if it can be fed, rather annoying. Not good in a restaurant.

We found this restaurant by accident whilst wandering through Avignon. The service was quick and the food tasty. The spaghetti bolognese was particularly well received by our resident pasta expert. Recommended for a quick lunch stop.

The food here is disgusting. It's not fit for humans consumption. DO. NOT. VISIT. We ordered the following: 1) Onion soup: Aka brown hot water with artificial beef flavoring, salt and a few sliced onions as garnish. 2) Mussels: This was served in a warm pot but the mussels were still frozen inside. Sick. 3) Pesto pasta: Cold icky spaghetti... More

My husband, son and I decided to eat here as it had reasonable prices and lots of customers. Positives: No waiting for a table. Good food. Quick service. Not so positives: I ordered a Niçoise salad (without those vile anchovies) to start, Italian burger for main. Husband chose set menu of snails, then salmon, then fruit salad. Son chose carbonara...

Not recommended, surely waiter obviously didn't want to be there. Starter ok but both rare steaks were well done, second attempt one was a bit better, the other nearly inedible. Final issue was the addition of items to the bill we had not had. Don't bother with this one.

We ate lunch outside. Service was good and the food seemed to be made from good ingredients, but I ordered a rare steak and it was grossly overcooked. I didn't send it back because I hated to waste the life of the cow. I don't know if the waiter pressed the wrong button or the chef was incompetent, but it... More
