I can't believe a place like Provence Town exists in Shantou, a small tier-3 city far removed from the cosmopolitan areas of Shenzhen and Guangzhou!

I absolutely love the cocktails and the beef tenderloin is outstanding. Truly authentic and the service is great and attentive. Ask for Jay, the bar manager. He speaks great English, understands what foreigners want, and is quite friendly.

I don't mess around, and this place is as good or better than the majority of Western restaurants I've been to in Shanghai. As an American businessman often in Shantou, I consider this place my kitchen, living room, and social gathering venue.

One of the very rare western restaurants that served both real western food and classic cocktail in town. I tried a few cocktail such as mojito and bloody mary and ordered ox tail soup, risotto and vanilla pudding, all of them are surprisingly good! Will definitely go back!

This is probably the place in town where you can currently find the best steaks and also a very affordable menu in general. On top of being the rare place with good foreign food, they speak English, listen to comments and always try to improve on things. They also have a wide selection of snacks which are really good and cheap. Try stuff, you won't regret it.
Definitely a place to go when in Shantou for drinks, food or just hanging out and meeting new friends!
