Interesting restaurant specializing in meat and cheese fondue, located in the historic center of Avignon. Open for lunch and dinner.

Directions: Near the Les Halles covered market

We enjoyed lunch at this restaurant on a chilly Saturday in February. It is located near the Les Halles covered market, on a small side street in the historic center of Avignon. We ate upstairs in a small and pleasant dining room, but there are also tables downstairs in a 16th century cave with a lot of atmosphere (just dark!).

La Salicorne specializes in fondue. I had the cheese fondue and Kelly and Charley had meat fondue with a couple of different sauces. We shared chocolate fondue for dessert. They offer a couple of different "menu" combinations that seem a good value. I don't remember this, but the website says they offer raclette with advance reservation, which I would love! The menu did include other food besides fondue, but we enjoyed the leisurely and fun fondue meal.

They are open for lunch (12 to 2 pm), then open again for dinner. We tried to eat here again in mid-March, but they were closed for vacation. We would definitely eat here again.

This was a fairly expensive lunch for us, but a special treat. We paid 77 euro for the three of us, including wine.
