In 1992, thrown together on Cape Cod by political circumstances none of them could have predicted, four young Yugoslavs founded Pain D'Avignon.Their goal was to recreate the Old World Traditions using baking techniques and recipes barely changed in centuries. Their founding principle: fine breads deserve to be at the center of the dining experience, not a mere afterthought. At their Hyannis bakery, the timeless art of bread making is both revered and respected. Everyday salt, flour and filtered water are combined – like the bakers themselves – with a distinctly European flavor.

    Last night we dined at Pain D’Avignon which is tucked away near the airport in Hyannis. Joseph was our Bartender/Server accompanied by the Manager/Hostess Chloe both providing exceptional service! We started with the Beef Tartare and a crock of the French Onion Soup. Being completely honest the Tartare was actually better than what we recently had in Paris and the soup was delicious! For dinner we had the Steak Frites and Pan Seared Scallops, both meals were nicely plated and prepared perfectly. No room for dessert but we did sneak in an espresso martini and Chloe was certain we left very satisfied! Great food, an extensive wine list, cool Modern French vibe and a friendly staff! What more could you ask for? I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    My food was cold while my husbands was raw and undercooked. Excellent service and had a great menu but the food was below expectations. Also, the seating was very uncomfortable and the chairs any average size person can barely fit into.

    We had a great time here. Have been wanting to try it out for a while and it did not disappoint. Food and wine were delish, (buratta, burger, sirloin) and our waiter was fantastic. Thanks Eduardo! Reasonably priced for the quality of food. The only thing I’ll mention is the close proximity of tables to one another - personally prefer more space. Overall a great dining experience, will return

    Service was very good. Menu was "different" from the run of the mill which was great, but- the open face steak sandwich was very light on the shaved steak and very thick on one small slice of bread. Not worth the $22 price tag. Friends had a quiche and the croque monsieur and they both enjoyed their choices. We stayed too long at our table and our waiter was very patient with us- for which we tipped him very well. He was very good.

    Made reservations for a prefix Christmas Eve dinner. The place was completely understaffed and packed with diners. It took a half an hour to get our drinks. The pour was barely an eighth of a quarter full in the wine glass and they charged $21.00 for a glass of Pinot noir. We said something to our server but, it took another 10 minutes to come back with a little more wine. We ordered the halibut as one of the three choices on the prefix menu. The help it was completely overcooked and dry as a bone. It was barely edible. If we weren’t there with our children I would’ve sent it back. Vegetables were complete the other cut and mushy. One of the dessert choices was a pumpkin cheesecake which came out as sandwiched in between to overly cooked Filo slices and in the middle something that barely passed as “cheesecake “. Overall, the food and lack of service was extemejy disappointing. So much so in fact, that we’re going to call the restaurant when they reopen on Monday to discuss it. Overall, it was a horribly disappointing dining experience on Christmas Eve.

    First time visitors and we were so pleasantly surprised. Once seated at a very nice corner table we had a great view of the surroundings and they were very nice. The waitress came over after about a 10 min wait with apologies. She asked if we wanted to order and we asked start out with some cocktails in an effort to avoid the fast flip of the table. We had a wonderful time despite the interesting start. The food and service were great and we were all very pleased with our meals and the ambiance. The only complaint was we wished we had discovered this restaurant sooner. We will definitely be back. A very special night for certain.

    Christmas Eve. Really good, and creative. Generally, when filet mignonette , or any meat is covered with brown sauce, the chef is hiding something. Not so, here. As good as the meal was, a meal simply of their crusty French bread and butter could have been a great meal, in and of itself!

    No white asparagus on the lobster salad and the music would be a nice touch if the acoustics were better. We were seated as far from the musicians as could be but we were unable to carry on a conversation.

    Like many other restaurants, Pain d’Avignon was understaffed. This led to a significant number of issues that made the birthday lunch for my husband very disappointing. We waited a very long time for the meal. His soup and croque madame cane at the same time. The latter was cold and and clearly been sitting for some time. We weren’t asked if we wanted bread (I had a salad for lunch). I had considerable difficulty getting a plain glass of water. I did express my concerns to our waiter and he was very apologetic. We left with a complimentary loaf of lovely bread. But the lunch had been such a disappointment.

    Only issue I had is that it took 20 mins after being seated for the waiter to come over and ask if we wanted a drink. Other than that it was a great experience.
