Fine Dining in Saint-Tropez – Top 3 Luxurious Restaurants
When you travel to the South of France, you already know that you are in for an exquisite culinary journey. However, there are some things that are truly a once in a lifetime experience. This list brings you the very best fine dining in Saint-Tropez; visit all three to take your French Riviera gastronomic pilgrimage to the next level.
For a culinary explosion
La Vague d’Or at Résidence de la Pinède is where we would eat every night if we could afford it. Famously opulent and renowned for its three-Michelin-star Chef Arnaud Donckele, named Chef of the Year in 2013, this St-Tropez restaurant offers a mind-blowing menu, combining locally-sourced ingredients in extraordinary ways. Book a seat on the terrace overlooking the ocean and make the most of your time thereby ordering the 7 Act Balade Epicurienne taster menu, which takes you on an adventure through Donckele’s culinary philosophy. If you’re a wine connoisseur – or just enjoy a good tipple – don’t miss the specially selected wine pairings, designed by sommeliers to perfectly complement the meal.
If you’re planning an amorous evening out and want to wow your beloved, look no further than Rivea at Byblos. The restaurant offers simple yet incredible dishes, which will leave you feeling extremely satisfied without ruining your diet. Its classic flavours marry French and Italian cuisine, with inspiration from Provence to Nice, from Liguria to Piedmont – via the Principality of Monaco. And whilst the food charms, the beautiful setting – whether you dine alfresco or in the ambient indoor area – is the perfect place to toast your blossoming relationship.
Top hint: to really impress your loved one, look for a vacation villa to rent with a chef in St Tropez and enjoy gourmet meals like these every day, from the comfort of your holiday home. After all, who doesn’t like a Michelin-star breakfast in bed?
