As a last minute booking (11am for noon), we didn't have time to read reviews and so our party of four friends had few preconceptions when we turned up at this wonderful location for a cheap (well €35!) lunch. We were delighted - the food...More

How does this restaurant retain its Michelin star? We visited for dinner in July and the first disappointment was the service, or lack of it. The staff were indifferent and extremely inattentive. After waiting for 10 minutes or so, I had to leave my seat...More

The restaurant was an interesting find. It is open air, with covering as needed. It was warm early and then became pleasant as the sun set. Staff was slow to respond at first but then got better. Food was excellent and several dishes were specialties....More

The food here is very accomplished technically and yet quite simple in its flavourings and ingredients. We had the tomato based tasting menu (there was only one other tasting menu on offer) at €75 each. About 7 or 8 small, very yummy and interesting dishes....More

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.
