Grain de Sel

Address: 6 Rue de 11 Novembre, 83310 Cogolin
Tel: 04 94 54 46 86

There are only 20 covers available at this small bistro-style restaurant with an 'open' kitchen and a small terrace. The owner chef, Philippe Audibert, used to work at the famous Byblos in Saint Tropez and has created a menu here which changes daily depending on what is available at the market. The food represents a modern take on traditional Provencal – artichoke soup; fresh tuna with goats' cheese and sun-dried tomatoes, farmhouse cheeses. Madame Audibert is on hand to help suggest the wines, but the wine list, while good, unfortunately lists very few from the region.

Useful information: Menu €29. Closed Sundays and Monday. Closed for three weeks in February and two weeks at the end of October.
