Classic Charme and Incomparable View

Great menu, state-of-art execution, gentle staff and attentive service in this old S. Trop gem; The restaurant and the hotel still belong to the founder's family and are part of the celebrities-filled, decades-long history of the fishermen's old settlement.

As a food lover i am going around the world to explorer a lot of restaurants. La Ponche is one of my favorites in France. Still no star of Michelin but very nice food indeed. A very nice location and of course st tropez so a stunning nightlife.

Another return to la Ponche after a year proved well worthwhile. In St Tropez for the Voile (regatta) we chose the worst day when the wind was too strong for the boats to race. Perfect consolation was a meal at la Ponche, situated in the Old Town overlooking a small beach and the bay. One . Large Sole and one... More

Very good food and excellent service make this one of our favourite restaurants in St Tropez. It's easy to find, right by the Citadel.

Very average restaurant, average quality service, interior and way of serving. I do not understand how this restaurant could get honorable mention in the Michelin Guide!We have tried 4 dishes a la carte and each of them were boring, bland or bad. Among other things: Foie gras with Eggs on our entrees, fish served with potatoes. All of this was... More

I recently went to St. Tropez with a large group of friends. We agreed to meet up on our first evening at this landmark of the town. We struggled to find it at first not because it is well hidden but because we are clearly a bit dim. Anyway, it was worth the trouble. We were not sat at a... More

We've been coming to La Ponche for the last three years whenever we visit St Tropez. The owner is delightful, and the service is very good without being overtly fancy. The view is wonderful, and food is delicious. We'll be coming back for many years to come.

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 35 €.
