To taste high gastronomy in a dream setting: The Passenger
In terms of culinary excellence served in a dream setting, it will be difficult to find better: here everything is beautiful and everything is good.
Mosaic floors, Carrara marble, sculptures, and a terrace that opens onto the sea will satisfy even the most demanding.
On the kitchen side: 1 star in the Michelin Guide, a Chef Aurélien Vequaud, elected by Gault & Millau Grand Chef of Tomorrow 2019, and Steeve Moracchini, the Pastry Chef, elected by Gault & Millau in 2016 Pastry Chef of the Year, gives you a glimpse of the quality of the cuisine you will taste.
Whether you decide to weigh anchor with the Rouffe Impérial de Méditerranée with the perfume of Roses Belles-Rives, to take the sea with the Moruette cooked with hot sand, or to touch ground with the Oriado with Bio chocolate, this meal will transport you in the crazy years.

Every Sunday, starting at 12:00, the famous brunch will enchant your weekends (resumption January 2020).
