I was having lunch today at the restaurant La Pesquiere, just beside the restaurant La Ponche. Everything was perfect (by the way, I strongly recommend this one) until the restaurant La Ponche started to disturb the catering service, and especially the customers (including myself)!! It shows a lack of respect for, either, their customers and the customers of La Pesquiere.... More

This restaurant has a beautiful view! That is why we sat down. It was my mum's birthday and we wanted somewhere away from the hustle and bustle for a quiet lunch. The little courtyard area with a view of the sea and the restaurant itself with sparkling glasses and crisp looking table cloths were very inviting. There is a retractable... More

Have been reluctant to try this place in the past with the family as it looks a bit stuffy. However as 4 adults and 5 young kids can testify today, this is a great place for lunch. Great food, amazing views, and chilled rose. Not for the budget conscious, but hey, you are in St tropez...

We visited La Ponche once again, just a few days ago while attending Les Voilles de St Tropez, which is the annual Regatta. Our visit coincided with the veteran sailing ships race, so the delight at being able to see possibly 500 beautiful old sailing boats up to 60m long with up to 40 crew per boat, was truly amazing....

Great place to lunch in Saint-Tropez. Views of the bay, good selection of regional wines, especially roses, and great food. Try the daily specials. If mussels with curry sauce are on the menu they are not to be missed.

We've tried this restaurant in the old center of Saint tropez twice. The first time we've tried the touristic menu, which was cheap, I believe 36€ for a 3 coarse meal. We found it very good regarding the price we've paid. Later we tried it again and ordered something "a la carte", and I must say we've paid a lot... More

Description

La nostalgie du Saint-Tropez de naguere, la petite crique a l'ecart de la foule, la Ponche des traditionalistes et des touristes revant de Bardot. En choisissant soigneusement dans cette carte classique ce qui rappelle la Provence, la soupe de poisson, le marbre d'aubergine au chevre et basilic, la daurade grillee ou l'aumoniere d'agneau, on fait une belle visite sans ruine en profitant de la legende, dans un menu ajuste a 31 €.
