Tips for where to eat and recommended restaurants

Au Caprice des Deux

Caprice des Deux is the story of a brother and a sister, who had a common passion: the love of cooking and sharing.

In 2014, the famous Gault & Millau guide awarded the restaurant a second Toque, which was for sure very well deserved! Twentyfive years of happiness and love of cooking, guests can feel that atmosphere every evening.  Our waitress Crystal was incredibly charming so we came back three times during our Holiday!

La Vague d'Or

With three Michelin stars, Five Toques and a 19/20 Rating by Gault & Millau, Chef Arnauld Donckele invites guests on a fantastic food journey between land and sea. Arnauld's Cuisine is a rustic journey through the Mediterranean, celebrating the deeply rootes traditions of the region.  Unfortunatly the service is really stiff and might not display the wild heart of Chef Arnauld Donckele.  It seems, the French Riviera didn't t realise, that worldwide, professional Chefs such as René Redzepi, Sergio Herman or Claire Smith  celebrate nowadays an innovative kitchen, though in an informal modern and fine dining setting, which also encludes a professional  but still natural service .

Le Schpountz

This is a casual nice restaurant for a lazy lunch! The location is at the top of the old town just below the Citadel.
The mains such as moules and fish stew are simply divine. In terms of price/value this is one of the best choices in St Tropez. The service is excellent and efficient even though the restaurant is usually quit full.

La petite Plage

The legendary L’Escale restaurant has recenlty received a facelift and becomes La Petite Plage on the Port of Saint-Tropez.
Always feet in the sand but in a brand new authentic decor with warm and natural notes of wood and wicker, the spirit is chic and cozy, ideal for a friendly moment. In the kitchen, the menu, signed by the Michelin-starred chef and best worker in France ERIC FRECHON, offers a fresh and modern summer kitchen with Mediterranean accents. Also a cocktail bar on the shaded terrace. At nightfall, the musical atmosphere will make you experience the warm nights of Saint-Tropez.

Tips for where to sleep and recommended hotels

Hotel des Lices

SMALL LUXURY HOTEL AT THE HEART OF SAINT-TROPEZ

Different from the sterile stereotype hotels, Hôtel des Lices is a very charming choice in the heart of St. Tropez! It has a very lively atmosphere, during our stay of course it was packed with lots of sporty sailors, due to les Voiles de St. Tropez. Being near to the unmissable Places des Lices guarantees a constantly changing show where boules players get together every night. It's just a 5 minutes stroll to the old port, so the location is really unbeatable!
