Formerly the "Maison des Pêcheurs", this Michelin-starred restaurant (1 star) was already an institution in the 1940s. Today, it offers sophisticated, creative Mediterranean cuisine, with a magnificent view of the Iles de Lérins and the Estérel foothills from the terrace. 

Chef Nicolas Rondelli offers a "menu of the day", based on the treasures brought in by local producers. Red mullet, capon, St. Pierre, pigeon, Sisteron lamb... For yachting enthusiasts, "you'll embark at Les Pêcheurs as if aboard a turn-of-the-century yacht". Marble floor leading right out over the Mediterranean. Varnished mahogany walls glistening in the water's reflections. Majestic mahogany staircases, too, for an exceptional picture that will take you on a visual and gustatory voyage.
