Le Zinzolin, Restaurant Avignon | BKWine Pick

Zinzolin is apparently a dark purple colour. What it has to do with the restaurant we don’t know. You find the Le Zinzolin restaurant in the part of Avignon that use to be the cloth dyers’ and printers’ part (that must be the link), where there is still an old canal. A good ten-fifteen minutes walk away from the Pope’s Palace. But it is worth the excursion (both for the site and the restaurants here).

You will see an entirely different part of Avignon (and one where there are many new restaurants since a few years back). Le Zinzolin has a big terrasse on to a cobblestone pedestrian street. The perfect place to sit on a warm summer evening.

It is a classic café-style restaurant with a bit of extra colour and imagination. Cooking is classic with a twist, we have had the Corsican Burger (excellent) and a delicious risotto. Other things to choose from: grilled meat of course, gambas, duck’s breast etc. All served fresh, often with a small salad. Nothing spectacular but well prepared and good. Prices are very reasonable.

A short-ish wine list with some good names as well as some unknowns on it.
