You'll spot this beach side restaurant when driving from St Aygulf to Sainte-Maxime. It's usually busy, and especially so on a day like today, Grand-mother's day!

On the chalk board, the menu shows the classics of the Cote d'Azur: Loup Grillé au fenouil (Sea Bass with fennel), Daurade sur legumes (Sea Bream over a bed of veggies), Gambas shrimps, Carré d'Agneau (Lamb) and always a respectable "Plat du Jour". In 2008, most dishes here ran around €20, with the Plat du Jour usually the better deal and tasty. The dishes are not exceptionally creative, but fresh, tasty and well-presented. Save some room for desserts, with the Tarte Tatin apple upside-down tart being sooo good as was the Emotion chocolat.

Eat on the outside terrace overlooking the sea and waves that rumble, or inside where the all-round bay windows let you enjoy the sites.
