We had dinner at La Vielle Fontaine on a recent visit to Avignon. It is located in the lovely
Hotel D'Europe. When we arrived at the dining room there was no greeting. We
got the attention of a waiter who said to sit anywhere. The very casual and unprofessional
service was not in keeping with the formal atmosphere of the room. One of the appetizers,
white asparagus was very nice, but the mackeral appetizer was not good. The waiter
brought out the sole and fileted it tableside then took it back to the kitchen because he
said it was not cooked enough. I finished my main course of lobster before the, now over
cooked, sole was returned to the table. We were asked to pre-order desserts so we wouldn't
have to wait if we wanted the Grand Marnier souffle. The souffle was presented, but the other dessert didn't arrive until I finished the souffle. Overall, not a great experience. We will not return.
