This is an institution in Avignon and might be worth a visit only to have a drink (to see the original decoration). But avoid the food at all cost as it is rather bad, as previously described. Unfortunately I didn't read the TA reviews before going, following a suggestion from the hotel receptionist. Service was OK as the place was empty. Won't go again.

Food was awful - we had the following:

> crevettes a l'ail - (shrimps) - which looked like they'd been sitting around for a day. And unlike proper Spanish 'Gambas al ajillo' there was no sizzling hot oil, and small headless shrimp.
> Tortilla patata (spanish omelette) - burnt on the bottom. Greasy. Orange colour ???
> Manchego (cheese) - 2 of 4 slices of cheese were the chalky end of the cheese. Two unlovely slices of bread slapped on top.
> courgettes gratin - looked worse than it tasted.
> beignets pois chics (chick pea) - greasy and heavy.
> horchata (almond drink) - from a bottle

Food probably tastes better if you're drinking, but we weren't, cause we were driving.

Toilet didn't have a seat ???, and smelt like it hadn't been cleaned all weekend (we went on a bank holiday Monday).

Sat outside on a table that was sloping, and drinks kept sliding off !

Service was indifferent.

We live in the area and eat here about once a month. It's always a relaxed vibe in an eclectic environment. The service is fast, friendly and priced reasonably. I recommend it for anyone who wants a fun easy place to share an evening with friends.

Had a lovely evening here, the owner was very friendly and the food delicious. The atmosphere was pleasant as well in a rustic way.

We went to this restaurant and were struck by the appalling rudeness of the waitresses and waiter/owner. The food was OK - cheap and reasonable quality. But I'd rather pay more and have a more pleasant experience
