One if the best places in Avignon. Nice staff, cozy place, good music, good prices. Try the tartines chaudes! My favourite: 3 fromage et poire. And order a salad with it, you'll need it ;) And try all of the desserts. They are all wonderful.

"Bistro à Tartines", perfect for a drink and a light meal. In France, we often eat our main meal at lunch time, not an uncommon practice but then finding some place in the evening without the full-on three or four course offerings in the evenings can be harder than one might think. Here is the answer. Located on a pretty... More

This restaurant Agee blocks from the tourism office specializes in tartains , open faced sandwiches. They have variety available but the hot cheese tartains are especially good and a vegetarian option. Ate in the plaza and a warm fall day for a delightful lunch. Recommend the chocolate mousse.

It was a warm balmy evening and we were wandering the streets of old Avignon looking for somewhere to eat, we saw this crowded place on the corner of the street with a jumble of tables and chairs with people eating and laughing. We managed to grab a... More

Just outside of the busy center of Avignon but within the walls of the city we loved this little square with it big trees and the variety of restaurants around it. Our favorite was Ginette et Marcel and its menu of tartinettes, salads and desserts. A tartinette is something like an open sandwich and this restaurant offers them with many... More

This restaurant offered basic food, nothing you would call fine dining, but eating outside was relaxing and lots of people watching in this location.Do not expect to be eating in quiet as lots of noise as you are eating on the square, which makes it enjoyable for a more moderate priced eating and drinking experience.

A nice place with excellent tar tines and fresh salads. So nice to sit out in the lively square and watch the world go by. Inexpensive and friendly service.

Wandering the town, we happened upon this quaint place. Very helpful, friendly staff assisted in our selecting 2 hot tartines-French bread with toppings. We had pesto, mozzarella, and tomato; 3 cheese & pears. Delicious. Also, nice selection of wine and beer. All reasonably priced. Would definitely go back!
