La Boucherie - Mercure Palais des Papes Hotel-Restaurant
Specialist cuts of fresh meat, prepared and matured by butchers. Winter dishes: Calf’s head, kidneys and tripe; Summer dishes: choice of salads, T-bone steak, Rib of beef, barbecued meat, spider steak (unusual cut), skirt steak. Gourmet deserts such as waffles and Nutella tiramisu.
The scene is set, the minute you walk through the door: red walls, wooden blocks, white “metro” tiling, banquette seating. The décor is redolent of a butcher’s shop, but with a warm and comfortable atmosphere. In summer, meat lovers can enjoy lunch or dinner out on the large sunny terrace. Just opposite, you’ll see Avignon’s main square, Place de l’Horloge and if you turn your head a little, you’ll spot the Papal Palace.La Boucherie restaurant, at the foot of the Hôtel Mercure is the perfect place to enjoy a gourmet break, in the heart of historic Avignon.
