Restaurants in Avignon and surroundings
Avignon's gastronomic heritage
Avignon is famous for its history and culture, but it also has a great restaurant scene. This beautiful, fortified town owes its food culture to the popes who made it their home in the 14th century, when they built their magnificent gothic palace. Today, the chefs at the best restaurants in Avignon proudly serve up this precious gastronomic heritage. Their menus are filled with Provencal, Mediterranean-inspired cuisine which is as gourmet as it is creative. Even the most exacting foodies will be thrilled.
Cuisine in Avignon: a riot of Provencal flavours
As a town of art, culture and history, Avignon is a unique place to relax in a restaurant while sampling authentic, original, contemporary cuisine. Much like Provence itself, the menus are a riot of colour and flavour, and vegetarians will have plenty to choose from. There are few greater pleasures than brunching in Avignon on a terrace overlooking a courtyard or garden, or dining in a romantic restaurant nestled at the foot of the town's walls. You might like to end your day with friends in a lounge bar, sipping a cocktail or enjoying a meal beside the pool. The City of Popes reveals its full splendour when welcoming guests for a delicious meal.
