This restaurant came highly recommended, and the only reason that we did not give it five stars is that we were not thrilled with the special main. (The multi-hour cooked lamb was ok, but just up to the quality of the rest of the food.)...More

We dined at Fou de Fa Fa based on previous reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant, probably due to its current no1 status, appeared to attract on our visiting night predominantly English speaking diners which detracted from the rustic French charm which we personally look for...More

We had a fantastic meal at Fou de Fafa. The restaurant is very small, so reservations are a must. The food was delicious and the service was great. We never felt rushed and even though one of our party was running late, they were very...More

Limited, but varied and interesting menu. Food superb, and attractively presented. Delightful ambience. Hostess is English, and very welcoming. Cannot recommend too highly. Excellent value.

I am not the manager of the restaurant. But I recalled this restaurant is closed on Sunday. Suggest you email them to check and make a reservation
I meant ask you the other evening, when we had dinner with you (ours is the review from 22 September headed "Bravo!")... ... why 'Fou de Fafa', please? If you're able to settle this little mystery, thanks; but thanks again in any case for a really nice 'farewell to Avignon' meal.

no there is not but trust me the cooler dining is a welcome advantage. Also it's on a narrow street. The resto surroundings are very nice and very clean. They have a small area with a sofa to relax and chat near the back as... More
