Restaurants in St. Tropez
You'll eat well at St. Tropez restaurants, as top chefs take advantage of the bounty of fish from the sea and the farm-fresh produce of southern France. A meal at the best restaurants in St. Tropez may be a blow to your travel budget, so do as the French do and stretch that lunch (ideally on a terrace cooled by Mediterranean breezes) into an afternoon-long event. One place that is comparatively reasonable is La Table du Marche. Christophe Leroy's popular bistro and pastry shop is a design-conscious yet down-to-earth lunch spot. The menu includes dishes such as shrimp scampi, risotto, and salad Niçoise.
The best fish in town can be found at Le Girelier. Situated on the Quai Jean-Jaurès waterfront, this seafood restaurant faces the marina and its multimillion-dollar yachts. The dining room is decorated in a sophisticated, marine-inspired style. Outside, the wooden terrace provides a slightly more casual setting. The classic Provençal menu emphasizes fresh fish, with options like salmon tartare, bouillabaisse for two, and sautéed cuttlefish in a garlic-parsley sauce.
Tucked away in a picturesque courtyard, Le Patio specializes in Italian cuisine, with dishes like grilled antipasti, swordfish carpaccio, squid-ink risotto, "Sorrento"_ seafood salad, and veal with porto sauce. The quality for the price is outstanding.
The dimly lit, retro-chic newcomer specializes in Thai and Vietnamese dishes. Its spin-off cafe, Comptoir, has slightly lower prices and a terrace.
The newest venue in the old port is stark white and mirrored, which helps put its thin, gorgeous, and tanned clientele on display. The menu features light Mediterranean cuisine, such as moules marinieres (mussels cooked in white wine) and seared calamari.
