If you want to impress people, invite them to Yamato and enjoy the quality of the drinks, the food and the wine. The nicest tables to reseve are the ones with a view on the garden.

We visited Yamoto for lunch in July during our south of france tour. The restaurant is a little hidden at the end of av. de Bleges. Once entering the small iron gate, the small zen-style garden is the first nice welcome. Inside and outside seting...More
