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 €.

We had fish, lamb and mussels. All dishes were excellent, and the mussels were some of the best we have tried. Evening breeze and view of water made the whole experience outstanding.

We stumbled in for a July lunch and left with a smile. The fish soup was as good as the waiter said. The sea bass likewise - although stretching the limits of the price for a main course for lunch. The atmosphere relaxed - maître d handing out straw hats for those that were too exposed to the sun and... More

Whilst others may have been 'unlucky here, we have to say, we had a 'Good Experience' during our recent dinner ... A full restaurant, one table just cleared, front corner with view of sea, couldn't have been better ... breezy on a 'stuffy night' ... Charming hostess, we felt 'welcome', chose the 3-course .... when she noticed I finished my... More

Fantastic lunch spot with a sea view in the old town. Leave the harbor behind and venture into the old town and soon after City Hall you will find this gem at the bottom of a very arty street. Service was very friendly, they have a menu in English for those of us who struggle with more than the basics... More

We visited here for lunch on 9th September. I had made a reservation some weeks in advance as it was my girlfriend's "big" birthday and I wanted a table "face a la mer". The hotel is only about a five minute walk up the hill from the harbour opposite where the Bateaux Verts arrive from Sainte Maxime and well away... More

Lunch at La Ponche was lovely. Fantastic view. Service was a bit slow especially with two small kids. Ate off the set menu which was 31€. Food was lovely and desserts excellent. Would recommend.
