Opera season ...and Orange is bursting at the seams, and offers lots of expensive Opera menus only. We chose to dine at this perfectly situated and characterful restaurant, not only because we thought the food looked good but because the set menu at 29.95euros was good value. We were not at all disappointed.
The service was smiling and delightful, and whilst the restaurant was very busy, we did not at all feel rushed or hassled. Our crab and seaweed nems were aromatic and delicious, and our main courses of Duck and Beef equally so. The Wine list was compact but with good local reference, and we enjoyed a local Rose and a spicy Crozes Hermitage. Puddings were refreshing frozen lemons filled with lemon sorbet, and imaginatively presented fresh pineapple.
Le Saigon was a great choice for our pre opera meal. Great location, great food and genuine, charming service

On a hot evening this was an introduction for us to Vietnamese food & we were not disappointed. Great service with lots of smiles & we were made to feel relaxed & welcomed. Only thing to point out is the huge portions, we asked if one rice between 2 would be enough but were told we would need two, mistake so much we couldnt eat it all, but thats not a slight, we are just not used to it.

This Vietnamese driven restaurant offers a fair selection of Asian dishes and is a welcome variation on the average French restaurant. Great location, next to the Antique Theatre. Some of the staff members were a little rude, others very very friendly. We could eat here again.

Historic Sites in Orange, had lunch at Le Saigon. Wide menu selection including Liquor and Wines. Large portions, reasonably priced, service prompt and courteous.
I had Duck and my wife had sweet and sour chicken. Both were great.

We were overwhelmed with the choice of places to eat in Orange and had been dying to try frogs legs in France that we decided on this restaurant. This was early July and it was hot hot hot...but that didn't stop us buying a hot dinner and we weren't disappointed, they were surprisingly yummy, yep, a little like chicken. My husband had the Dorado fish and also very good with a side of rice. I also enjoyed the local favorite of Pastis, really developed a taste for this one and finished with a complimentary Sake that was also a first. They were very busy that night, both inside and outside where we sat but they were always attentive and friendly, we really liked it. Thanks
