Abundant seafood with a decadent feel. We wanted authentic local food not for tourists

I could hardly manage to eat the generous range of sea food balanced on my plate. a langustine positioned with claws around a potato towered over the mixture of shellfish . A range of fresh vegetables lurked below. The food was delicious full of flavour stylishly presented. The restaurant was... read more

I went here with my in-laws who live in Saint-Raph and never eat out in their own town. Which I can understand- a lot of the restaurants cater for less-than-discerning beach tourists. But one evening we ate here, and it was actually perfectly fine. Which says a lot in this context.

To us it is unbelievable that this restaurant is not ranking in top in Saint Raphael. Situated in the centre of the old town - away from the newbuild artificial yachting ghettos where the sailors eat probably without knowing which Miditerranean town they are in - you really feel at the centre of life... Close to the old church, the... More

Le Bouchon Provancal was recommended to us by a local couple we met in St Raphael. The restaurant has a great preset menu. I ended up ordering the fois gras and the lobster and both were mouthwatering. Great value as well, 3 course meal for eur 38 (and that was the more expensive menu as well) ... excellent wine list...

This was our second visit in 3 months and we left satisfied. Good home cooking, the chef is talented. Delicious beignets fleurs de courgettes, superb authentic aioli, unfortunately on fridays only. It is oneof the better restaurants in St Raphael frequented by locals who know about genuine good food.

Booked a table after reading the reviews on trip advisor, and was not let down. Great atmosphere friendly service and delicious food. Both my partner and I enjoyed a faultless three course meal and came out of the restaurant with a smile on our face. Not cheap but worth every penny.

Le Bouchon Provencal is perfect for great French food. Located away from the water, near the museum (museum is free BTW), it is cozy (seats 24 patrons inside), and they make their food right there. The desserts and cheeses are fabulous, but so are the other courses. I had the pate de foie gras with chutney on the side, and... More

We were very fortunate to be recommended this authentic place by friends residing in St Raphael. This is not a tourist trap. it is perfectly located in beautiful St Raphael, just by the market, and the short carefully thought menu spoils you with Provençal cooking at its best. We cannot wait to go back on a Friday to enjoy the... More

An easy place to find, away from the tourist strip on the sea front. It is difficult to explain why, but the dining experience missed something undefinable. The food was great and imaginative and Omnitarian Junior was served tasty Gambons the size of lobsters, (the like of which we did not imagine lived on this planet). Overall a pleasant experience...

Very Good quality service & food in the old town of Saint Raphael, close to the new market.Normally excellent food prepared by a good chef owner. In winter very warm and cosy with good local produce although food is good I have only one complaint: In the winter they do not use fresh mushrooms but that is only a small... More
