Six of us ate here in June 2015 and had a lovely Provençal meal with some reasonably good wines. Located just off Popes Palace Plaza, it's an easy walk from an downtown hotel.

All around unmemorable and disappointing. Let's start with the Sommelier as others have had the same experience (see hib2008 & martinidoc in the last few weeks). We were so brazen to bring (with phoned in approval) a fine bottle of California Rhone and offered a...More

Given the restaurant's Michelin star rating we expected exceptional food and service. The food was good, not great. The service was spotty at best. I was very disappointed that this was my dining companion's first experience at a Michelin rated restaurant, as I know from...More

This restaurant came highly recommended. There were some lovely dishes but only one stand out from a degustation and the delivery far too theatrical for us. We just couldn't relax. I think there are better choices in Avignon. Try Hotel d'Europe. Sensational food and ambience.

How can you not give this restaurant five stars? The location is prime, the food incredible and for the Bridge Menu (a shorter tasting menu available at lunch) it's all priced very reasonable for a restaurant with a Michelin Star. My husband and I had...More

Great Provençale atmosphere, in a classy and sophisticated environment, with a view on the Palace of the Popes courtyard. While she was still polite with me, the person welcoming me was still pretty condescending. The rest of the staff was polite but cold, the Sommelier...More

Description
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.
