La Vieille Fontaine: Gourmet restaurant in the center of Avignon

La Vieille Fontaine

La Vieille Fontaine restaurant is one of the best in Avignon (1* Michelin Star).

As one seasonal market follows another, traditional and rare ingredients enable our Chef to create and serve original and subtle Provencal specialties. Today, these delicate combinations have propelled the restaurant to the very top ranks, one of the best in this region.

From a cellar with a distinguished and outstanding selection, our Sommelier recommends wines suitable for the dishes you will have.

In fine weather, the courtyard is shaded by its centuries-old plane trees. Beautiful scents pervade the air. In winter, our guests are welcomed by a superb dining room, decorated with wood paneling dating from the 18th century, accompanied by paintings from the early 20thcentury. This is not just a culinary journey.

Bar and tearoom

The Hotel d'Europe is more than a hotel. Located in the most beautiful part of Avignon, it includes a bar and a tearoom which can be calm or buzzing with energy, depending on the time of day or day of the week. The people of Avignon like to gather here amongst themselves or rubbing shoulders with our international clientele.

Open from 7 a.m. for breakfast and serving hearty dishes until late at night, it is an ideal place where time is forgotten and the city seems far away.

Every afternoon from 3 p.m., the Salon de thé offers home-made pastries as well as a large selection of teas from all around the world.
