This small restaurant is not fancy and there is only one waiter, but the quality is outstanding. There were four of us and each ordered something different. Appetizers and main courses were all delightful. The meal was reasonably priced, as well. As an added bonus, music came from a record player.

Lovely small restaurant. The fish was cooked to perfection, accompaniments were all ideal with fresh fish. I will return.

This restaurant has a very relaxed atmosphere. It is located on a quiet corner away from the tourist flow. Most of all we enjoyed the relaxed feeling it somehow gave us. The menu was short and interesting, fish and local produce were central. A reasonable price and a happy occasion.

Such a lovely restaurant! Our hotel recommended it as "simple but fresh" and that is a good summary. It is not fancy, but is elegant and the food is high quality, well prepared and delicious. No English translations (a good sign of it NOT being a tourist trap), so you need your French to make out the chalkboard menu. Highly... More

We had this small fish restaurant recommend by our hotel. The fish dishes were superb and the staff so friendly and welcoming. It's a bit hidden away but worth finding for sure.

We live in central London and nearby there are a lot of restaurants that are trying really hard to be 'edgy' : mismatched furniture, tired decoration, concept menus, stick on beards. All contrived and combined with poor service, the food so-so and overpriced. The same cannot be said for le petit peche! We had a very good fish supper one... More

Firstly I was told there was no table and then, OK you can have that one. I assumed that I had been forgotten about as I was not approached for around 15 mins and then I was asked if I had chosen but I hadn't seen the menu so then I was left with the blackboard. Eventually I was invited... More

This is cute little restaurant in Avignon. There are so many great choices in this city, that I will not consider it among the best choices (especially in this price range). It is very good for lunch because the service is very quick and it is close to the Pope's Palace (our meeting venue). The city is also filled with... More
