“Lovely respite from the crowds”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Had noticed L'idylle on my way to the famed bridge and was ready for lunch on my way back to catch the train to Arles so I wanted lunch not a production. This small spot fit the bill perfectly. The waiter/crepe chef was very efficient and even seemed to deliver to nearby offices. My salad was perfect: greens, tomatoes and at least 2 types of cheese. The basket of French bread was a bit sparse but I didn't ask for more. A glass of white wine, a reasonable check and a quick skibble got me to the old train station in plenty of time.

“Tucked away place”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Tiny place, but a real french experience. Really reasonable for Avignon. Although more of a cafe than a restaurant. Quite a few French people eating here. Not too busy though. Don't expect to stay too long as the galettes and crepes only take a few minutes to cook.

“Great little find”
Reviewed 19 September 2011

On our trip to France in August we found eating out to be very expensive. In Avignon we discovered this wonderful little place. The food isn't anything fancy (salads, crepes, burgers etc) but it is easy on the budget. We ate here about 3 times and had a lovely meal every time. The crepes are delicious as are the salads. Would recommend this place over eatin gin the main square.
