Had lunch with the extended family here (6 adults) on a windy September day.
The location is perfect, with a view beautiful view of the bay and the boats sailing in and out of the harbour.

The food was lovely, if a little boring, and the chorizo bread-rolls were amazing. The wine list was interesting, with some very good finds to descent prices.
However, there were some basics I missed from a Resturant of this standard. Aged wine was not decanted, resulting in a lot of sediments being pored into our glasses as the wine was pored way too fast. When ordering the second bottle, we had to request that the wine was decanted, and even then, all the bottle was pored into the decanter, which the waiter then again pored into our glasses, with sediments.
When the wonderful bread-rolls were served, I would also have expected them to be served "baker warm", but they were served cold, making us assume they were made out of house.
In additions the restrooms were very "standard", but I give a plus for individual towels for wiping ones hands.

All in all, a nice Resturant, slightly stuffy atmosphere, good food, but I'm not sure it was worth the price compared to other excellent choices available in Sainte-Maxime

Excellent meal, wine and service, excellent ambiance, should be Michelin starred. Converted me to a fish eater, fantastic sea bream, thick and delicious. Recommend to gourmets! Loved it.

We reserved a table for 4 and were offered an excellent table with a panoramic view of the Marina and St Tropez across the water. Thee menu 42 Euro and one 62 Euro, all stunning! Wine recommended was first class, both red and white from Provence. Each course was just so good, far better than some stared restaurants. Staff were friendly and helpfull. Very good value indeed.

Nice and cool under the vaults, close to the pool and beach. They only serve lunch here but we had a great family dinner, certainly not cheap but still good value because portions were quite big. Don't hesitate to share a dish: the chef will make two plates. Service was very relaxed and fun.

The food is incompatible with the price. Common food too expensive. The waiter didn't explained well what I asked to him. If you dont care for the food and just want a nice view, this is a good place.
