Despite being located in a big hotel which lacks local colour, the restaurant setting is classic ‘Med.’ – gleaming white covers exude luxury, further enhanced by being set on a shaded terrace next to the bright blue pool which in turn looks out over the darker blue sea. The food is Provencal but in a straightforward, modern style concentrating on quality ingredients from local producers. There is a good list of local wines. Note: There has been some criticism of the restaurant that it is pretentious and unexciting.
