The food here is very accomplished technically and yet quite simple in its flavourings and ingredients. We had the tomato based tasting menu (there was only one other tasting menu on offer) at €75 each. About 7 or 8 small, very yummy and interesting dishes....More

We had a lovely meal at Christian Etienne while staying in Avignon. The views from the outdoor seating area are very nice. The service and food were quite good. We had the tasting menu.

I'd like to know why perfection trumps comfort. The very haughty maitre d'hôtel reprimanded staff who didn't meet his exacting standards, something we found very unpleasant. When he saw we were uneasy, he engaged one of our party in banter about the crass Americans at...More

Probably the most disappointing fine-dining experience we've ever had. We are happy to spend quite a bit of money and time for a delicious, creative, high-quality, well-served meal. This meal, while expensive, offered none of the rest. Avoid. The service was so inattentive and slow...More

My daughter and I ordered the spring menu, several wonderful courses, each one perfectly executed. The recommended wine was a perfect match. The service was incredible. We ate on the outside patio and it was a great evening.

We dined at lunchtime and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service is outstanding and the food was amazing. I loved the retractable awning that kept the bright sun from heating us up too much.

Set next to Avignon's magnificent Palace of the Popes, Restaurant Christian Etienne is a divine dining destination with sweeping views of the city and of the Rhone valley. Michelin-starred chef Christian Etienne is passionate about food, and his seasonal menu – themed on tomatoes in summer, truffles in winter, asparagus in spring and mushrooms in autumn – has been inspired by the kitchens of his mother and grandmothers. This is a sensational spot for meals with a view, and the food certainly lives up to the restaurant's stunning setting. Etienne's signature dish is the roasted lobster claws served with asparagus and a confit of fresh ginger root and sesame seeds, and the restaurant has a superb Cote du Rhone-led wine list.
