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.
