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

Absolutely delicious food - the most exquisite three-cheese ravioli and a salted caramel creme brûlée. Friendly, attentive enough and relaxed. Fabulous.

We ate here on our first night in Avignon. Menu might look small but it is all superb. Out waitress Gwendoline was brilliant and her English was excellent, she explained all the dishes very well. We are real foodies and all dishes were very tasty. A modern twist on French food. We had an excellent night and would highly recommend.

My wife and I are into week 3 of our holiday in France and have been consistently choosing good quality French restaurants throughout. Our meal tonight at this small Avignon restaurant was very good. The service by the English speaking host was excellent. She was friendly, helpful and had a sense of humour. The menu did not have a lot... More

Great little restaurant, small but the food is really good, service was great, go early or book to get a table. I liked the assiete gourmand, they did a vegetarian version for me which was really great. there are lots of small touches to show they really try, and they were great with our kids

A lovely little find. We managed to get the last table and it was totally worth it. The food was amazing and the service was very friendly. A small selection on the menu but what we did have was delicious. I would definitely recommend the assiette du chef.

Thank filbertstreet

"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.
