La Manutention information
No address better reflects Avignon's inherently artsy soul than this hybrid bistro-bar at cultural centre La Manutention. Its leafy terrace with trees and potted plants basks in the cooling shade of Palais des Papes' giant stone walls and inside, giant conservatory-style windows open on the funky decor of pocket-sized bar, Utopia . Grilled tartines (€4.50) and light assiettes (mixed platters) make ideal companions to pre- or post-theatre drinks. When true hunger strikes, move to the neighbouring restaurant (2-/3-course lunch €13/16, Sunday brunch €15).
