Those of us who know and love Theoule-sur-Mer have, for the last couple of years, suffered from a lack of local special occasion venue. This arose as the Miramar Beach underwent a radical refurbishment, now happily completed.
The new rooms that we were able to check, being occupied by friends, are elegant, service is generally good, the location remains entrancing and the beachfront restaurant where we dined achieves that difficult ideal, a classy informality that will surely make it a huge local favourite.
Our crab salad and gambas with noodles were outstanding and the desserts trolley irresistible. There are, of course, cheaper local eateries, but none scales quite this height of excellence.
A tiny grumble: the greeter who escorted us from the reception area to the restaurant was unnecessarily insistent that we should have booked, particularly as the restaurant was virtually empty when we arrived and only 70% full at is peak. The only "uncool" moment of our experience. We'll put it down to youth and excessive keenness.
So, yes, we'll be back.More
