Philippe Da Silva, a generous and enthusiastic Chef, has turned the Hostellerie des Gorges de Pennafort into one of the most sought-after restaurants in the Var. This lover of fine foods prepares a neoclassical cuisine that is always elaborate and delightful. Among others, his creations include foie gras and parmesan raviolis, a lobster salad with tomato confit and fried scampi with chanterelles and arugula cream... An invitation to a delicious, tasteful moment.

One of the best restaurants in France

I like everything and described it in my hotel review of the same place. Mr. Da Silva and his Gorges de Pennafort is one of a kind and a place you will not forget and you want to come back.

We had booked lunch with a group of friends and unanimously decided it was one of the most generous and delicious meals we had shared. Between the courses we expected the chef kept sending out extras for us to try, we lost count of the plates that arrived at the table. Everyone ate very slowly savouring every mouthful , this...

This was quite possibly the finest dining experience I have ever enjoyed in my entire life. The restaurant, and adjoining hotel, are situated out in the country in a beautiful location. The weather was perfect, so we were able to enjoy eating outside as well. We were tipped off in advance that the chef here likes to deliver extra courses... More

Our visit to Les Gorges de Pennafort was indeed a total experience. A gastronomical palette supplemented by a number of "surprises" from the chef. Fantastic wines. And not the least - the service and friendless from all members of the staff.

Stayed here one night and had dinner on the terrace with a view of the floodlit gorge. The food was superb - chose the €90 menu which should have given us an amuse bouche, starter, fish course , sorbet , main course , cheese and dessert. Were hopelessly confused but delighted when two surprise starters courtesy of the very talented... More

We came as a couple for a celebration, and we were not disappointed! we had a large table with a view on the whole room, and after a Champagne happy hour with lovely petits fours, we selected the basic 90 euro menu and were amazed by the number of surprise dishes served. The cuisine was traditional with a twist, very... More

As many people before have stated, this was one of the best dining experiences ever. 4 of us had the 90 Euro menu - 16 dishes and three & a half hours later with seamless service we were in heaven. The whole experience was excellent, the food was diverse and full of flavour and they kept the best to last,... More

Restaurant is nicely located in the countryside. It has a la carte menu or 3-4 different menus to choose from. We all choose 7 menu course. Got some good advise on both red and white wine to go with the different dishes. Polite and good service and there was a perfect flow. Almost needless to say that all dishes (including... More

Came here with my family for lunch, and ordered the 90 euro menu. Easily the greatest meal I have ever had. Each dish was more delicious and imaginative than the one that came before it! Great food, and even better service. A beautiful setting as well. Simply a perfect meal!
