While living in Avignon I ate hear a few times. What I liked is that the food reminded me of what I might have eaten at home had I grown up in the south of France. The restaurant is attached to a boulangerie where you can also get some very good bread. Everything is reasonably priced and a good value.

This place pretends to have a set menu for lunch but the bill came to far more and their excuse was unfathomable.....far more than i would have paid for anything they provided....watch out !

The cuisine was very fine but with a limited selection. We were the only customers and actually felt sorry for the hard working people who ran the place. If you don't need lots of choice, this could be the place for you.

Nice outdoor patio. It got a little chilly in the evening so staff brought out blankets for our group which was a nice touch. The food was very good although a very limited menu.

The food and service was excellent for dinner - glad we rejected the tour recommended place - menu as usual. We stumbled on this place on our way back towards the main road. The outdoor eating area was quiet, clean and bright with good looking people walking by. We were looking for something unique and good. The thinly sliced squash... More

We ate there last night and what a great experience. Very well looked after by Gwendoline. Small menu but every thing very fresh and local. You could see all the dishes being prepared. Speciality is local dried beef which was delicious and the plate of desserts was wonderful. We enjoyed the meal very much as it was so good to... More

This was the best restaurant experience we had during our shorth stay in France and this was due to the excellent, friendly service and attitude by the restaurant staff - something we haven't experienced in many other restaurants. In addition to the excellent service, meals, desert and wine we had were all excellent. There are not many options in the... More

"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.
