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 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

Went on Saturday night with friends which we had booked the day before - so got a nice table in the terrace overlooking the beach and sea. Good service and set menu all washed down with a couple of bottles of some local rose. Not inexpensive but good value for what we had. If you want to get away from... More

Very good and refreshing Ceasar salad. Nice place to enjoy lunch on a typical Saint-Tropez summer day. There a nice seaview from the terrace and a small beach downstairs, very French atmosphère!

It's a bit off-center in the old fishermen's quarters & more quiet than the Place des Lices or the port that burst at the seams in the summer. I love the little beach at the Crique de La Ponche. The restaurant and hotel are also filled with history which gives them added charm. Clearly not inexpensive, but their soupe de... More

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' ...

We always come at least once in this old and traditional restaurant in front of the old port of St Tropez,but this time was a bit disappointing.The service quick and not professional as it used to be,they almost spit the fish soup on my husband's pants ...My stuffed vegetables have been reheated too high so they were hard and dry...
