Restaurant details
Reviewed September 9, 2017

Party of 8 English staying in nearby Valcros ventured here for Saturday lunch. Timing perfect as we arrived at 12.30pm just before a spectacular thunderstorm lit up the sea and sky. There was a 3-course Menu Decouverte at eu45 or an al carte menu with an imaginative range of Salades, Entrees, Plats and Desserts all with an excitingly Asian-fusion slant. I started with Caesar salad and breadcrumbed grilled, crunchy chicken slices, crispy fresh Romaine lettuce, parmesan shavings, lightly poached egg (yoke still runny) and garlic croutons (eu19). This was exceptional for the quality/freshness of the ingredients, the contrasting flavours and the outstanding presentation. I have not enjoyed a Caesar salad more since my last visit to San Francisco's Italian district.
For my main, I chose Monkfish served in a moderately hot and piquant Thai green curry sauce with perfectly cooked rice (eu25). This was another great dish and again highlighting the use of really fresh ingredients. Our group tried each other's food with similar race comments so one can be reasonably assured of a superb meal whatever is selected. Those having dessert especially enjoyed the mango soup with strawberries and basil (eu9) and Gourmet coffee with a selection of tiny desserts (eu12). Total bill with a few Belgian beers and some local Provence rose came to eu500 including a voluntary tip. Great value!
The roof leaked during the storm but staff were ever attentive and made sure our visit was not overly disturbed. What a magnificent find and I just hope it is still going successfully for our visit next September. Full marks to all involved.
