When you visit St. Tropez, one of the best things about your vacation is the exquisite dining. There are so many wonderful restaurants to explore. It’s difficult to narrow them down to just a few choices. There are so many wonderful places to eat. Here, though, are some of the best.
Plage de la Bouillabaisse
This outstanding restaurant has been recommended by the Michelin Guide time after time. It’s located in a small chateau overlooking the beach and offers the ultimate in Mediterranean cuisine. If you love the intense flavors of Mediterranean food, and appreciate elegant presentation and superb service, then Plage e la Bouillabaisse is a “must visit” on your culinary tour of St. Tropez.
Keep in mind, though, that you won’t be able to get in without a reservation. You’ll want to book a table well in advance, as this is a very popular dining spot that fills up fast. Don’t even think of not calling ahead, because if you don’t have a reservation, you’ll just end up being disappointed.
Au Caprice des Deux
This restaurant is located down a side street and offers French country cooking. The chefs refer to the food as ‘bistronomique.” The restaurant has been in business for more than 20 years, serving good, honest food with a highly creative flair. If you stick to the main streets, you might miss out on this culinary gem, so make sure that you take a map with you when you’re investigating the streets of St. Tropez in search of fine dining.
La Table du Marché
This is a traditional restaurant that really hasn’t changed its style in years. And why would it? It works! It’s a wood and brick building containing a restaurant, tea room and deli. This charming establishment is wonderful just as it is, so the owners have wisely decided not to tamper with perfection. Keep an eye out for the signage, though. There’s a chance you’ll miss it because it blends into the rest of the neighborhood.
This restaurant serves good, hearty fare like scrambled eggs for breakfast, and Moroccan lamb and spit-roasted chicken for lunch or dinner. Daily specials are available, and will not be printed on the menu, so when you visit La Table du Marché, be sure to ask your server what’s on offer.
Brasserie des Arts
This restaurant is arty, hip and very charming, with a lot of local art on the walls. The prices are a bit on the high side when compared to other restaurants in the area that offer similar fare, but it’s well worth it because the food is excellent! Try the scallops with salmon eggs, or the lamb chops with goat cheese. If you love great food (and who doesn’t?) served in a relaxing atmosphere, Brasserie des Arts is sure to please. You might want to visit more than once because the menu changes daily and you never know what new delights Chef has in store for you.
This eatery offers good, basic food in a welcoming atmosphere, and if you want to drop in for a beer, this is the place to be – it’s a very popular watering hole in addition to serving hearty fare. Try the pasta or the lamb chops with trimmings, and wash your meal down with a refreshing mug of ale.
These are just a few of the best places to eat when you visit St. Tropez. You might also investigate further, and find places that please you.
