While this is not one of Avignon’s Michelin starred restaurants, it is elegant and luxurious. Housed in the Hotel La Mirande, a renovated 18th C mansion, the hushed restaurant has high ceilings dripping with chandeliers, scalloped walls, tasteful wall papering and tables covered with crisp white linens, flowers and candles.(It was too cool to sit outside, which I’m sure would be lovely on a warm evening.) The servers are respectful, with impeccable timing. There were three of us and we all decided to have the five-course chef’s menu (a much better value than ordering a la carte) and were glad we did. We spent several hours sipping a lovely rose and a robust Gigondas (the wine list is extensive – 60 pages!). Each plate was like a work of art and tasted as good as it looked. Stand outs were a starter composed of brioche, melt-in-your-mouth duck foie gras and fresh mushrooms; the lamb entrée served with fresh figs and sausage in a spinach puree deep-fried humus cubes (surprisingly good); and the mille-feuille (buttery pastry layered with thick whipped cream). A sweet touch was the flower pot filled with chocolate shavings and wafers and capped with a hazelnut truffle lollipop.

Best drinks and cheese selection to go with your cocktails.
Waiters are charming and very pleasant.
Stay at the bar and listen to French music.

We just returned from a 3 hour lunch at La Miranda restaurant located in the hotel. It was a preset menu - chefs choice - and there were no disappointments . Start to finish everything was absolutely delicious not to mention the ambiance . We chose to eat in the garden area and it was very peaceful even though other tables were occupied. The red mullet fish was my favorite course served with vegetables in a delightful foaming sauce. All the dishes were excellent and we enjoyed the sorbet served after the last main course and prior to our dessert. The special drink made from garden herbs was very unique and the perfect ending to
a magnificent meal we will never forget. Merci to all the staff !!!

This place could be a 1-star. The food and service both warrant the rating. We ordered the Chefs menu (vegetarian and non-veg). Both meals were exceptional with each course better than the previous. Oyster, fish, asparagus app, desert...all awesome. Wine was super too. Fo here and take your time to enjoy the experience. You will luv it.

Dear Guest,

We thank you for your feedback following a recent visit with us.

We are glad that your experience was overall a positive stay as much by the hotel as by the restaurant. However, we are sorry for the inconvenience you had finding the hotel. Our property which is located in the heart of the city, where our neighbor is the emblematic palace of the popes, is reachable by a cobblestone street that adds to the history and charm of the city. This narrow street is accessible by all vehicles and can only be borrowed by the residents of the hotel through a system of bollards that are managed by the team at the front desk. This permits to limit the noise of the cars and enjoy even better the close surrounding of the hotel.

We hope to have the great pleasure of welcoming you again at La Mirande.

Kindest regards
