This might be the prettiest backdrop we have ever eaten against anywhere. However, this restaurant is on the bottom of my Michelin Bib Gourmand list because the food is only good, not great.
I suppose the first giveaway is that the staff all speak good English. Not that we interacted with them in anything other than French, but that is usually the first indication that they cater to tourists rather than being a "local" dining experience. Still, the view is like a beautiful painting, with rolling hills all leading out to an azure sea.
In general, the French don't care if they fill their restaurant. So when you go to a "local" restaurant, you generally get fantastic and genuine attention from underworked waiters, and chefs who take pride in their cooking. At La Verdoyante that night, there was a full house. Still, that did not detract from the good service. And who am I to fault a French owner who wants to make more money? That happens in every city in the world unless that city happens to be in France.
Don't go expecting Bib Gourmand standards, and enjoy the beautiful views from the terrace while you dine. That's how you will max out the experience.
