La Mirande, Café Roma, Le Bercail... Avignon's top 10 terraces

Spotlights not to be missed

Facing the majestic Palais des Papes, in the grounds of a private mansion or on a barge with a breathtaking view of the Pont Saint Bénezet, let yourself be surprised and seduced for the time of a drink on one of the most beautiful terraces in the city of the Popes.


In a building steeped in history and adjoining the Palais des papes, this gourmet restaurant with Provencal flavors welcomes you to its intimate, sheltered terrace for an exceptional culinary experience.

The grocery store

Just a stone’s throw from the Palais des papes, on the city’s most picturesque square, in an original and colorful setting, with a terrace overlooking the square in front of Saint Peter’s Basilica, a woman in love with Provence offers generous, family-style cuisine.

Le Bercail

On Barthelasse Island, enjoy a shaded terrace on the banks of the Rhône with an exceptional view of the Pont d’Avignon, the ramparts and the Rocher des Doms. Our cuisine is 100% homemade, and the restaurant’s cocktail bar is open seasonally from 5pm to 1am.

Péniche Vinotage

Vinotage is a gourmet wine bar on a barge on the banks of the Rhône, opposite the Palais des papes, offering more than 50 different wines, local produce and other specialities to go with them…and the view!

Café Roma

Restaurant, bistro, café, wine bar, tea room… all with an Italian touch and quality! Enjoy chef Italia Palladino’s inventive, gourmet cuisine in the majestic mirrored dining room or on the splendid terrace in the shadow of the Palace of the Popes.

La Mirande

Florent Pietravalle, chef of the gastronomic restaurant, 1 star in the Michelin Guide 2023
1 green star in the Michelin Guide 2021 and 4 Gault & Millau toques in 2022, offers elegant, refined cuisine in an exceptional setting. A chic, intimate garden, fragrant with Mediterranean essences for a timeless moment.

Le Violette

Located in the grounds of the Hôtel de Caumont, home to the Collection Lambert d’art contemporain, Le Violette offers a fusion cuisine with Asian flavors. The restaurant’s terrace unfurls in the inner courtyard, shaded by century-old plane trees and set back from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Le Moutardier du Pape

Opposite the Palais des Papes, on the terrace of this majestic square or inside the 18th-century building… don’t hesitate to stop for a coffee, a drink with friends, an artisanal ice cream or an aperitif. The effect will be the same… a precious moment out of time!

In the heart of Avignon

This guest house welcomes you to its wine bar. A wide selection of quality wines is offered, along with accompaniments such as charcuterie boards, salmon, foie gras and fine cheeses, in a very pleasant inner courtyard.

L'espace du Griffon

Opened in May 2023, the Griffon space in the gardens of the Palais des Papes is a cool, relaxing place to admire the grandiose architecture and take a break during your visit to the monument.
