Best restaurants in the South of France
French cuisine, the Côte d’Azur, just saying these words out loud can cause you to instantly dream off and picture yourself with a glass of champagne while admiring the unique blue water of the Mediterranean Sea.
Best restaurants in the South of France that you need to add to your yacht charter itinerary
With so many options to choose from, we selected a few outstanding restaurants along the coast of the South of France.
The staff of these venues are ready to intrigue you with their latest local and seasonal dishes, so ask your crew to make a reservation at one of them.
Cafe de Paris in Monaco
If you have time to visit only one restaurant while in Monaco, Café de Paris, centrally located on the Place du Casino should be on your bucket list. This brasserie has been the gathering place for the socialites of Monaco for over 150 years, with its art- deco style and an overall vibe of sophistication and allure. Pick one of the typical French specialties like beef tartare, niçoise salad or vanilla profiteroles, while you keep an eye on who is heading to the casino across the square to try their luck at the tables.
The selection of cheeses and meats and the catch of the day are all sourced at the local market, next to the brasserie. A glass of rosé or a chilled Sancerre to start of your visit and an espresso before you head out are a must while you take in all that is going on around you and make memories to cherish forever.
Le Vauban in Antibes
Stroll through the buzzling streets of the old town of Antibes on your way from the yacht to Michelin star restaurant Le Vauban which will delight you with their contemporary, French cuisine in step with the seasons. Take some time to walk the picturesque streets of this charming town so you can browse the shops and market stalls on your way to your culinary adventure. Chef Raymond Cornelissens uses local ingredients like the famous Menton lemons and fruit and vegetables from nearby producers. The bread comes from an artisan bakery. Order from the superb choice on the menu, foie gras, soufflés, parfait or try their wonderful degustation menu and be surprised by the mussel soup, thinly sliced octopus with a citrus dressing, homemade pate de foie gras with apricot, fillet steak and an exquisite cheese board.
The staff will go above and beyond to make sure you will have a unforgettable dining experience in this beautiful town at the sea. Their twist on a cheesecake dessert, made with kiwis, will make you want to come visit again.

Les Pecheurs in Antibes
Away from the busy streets of the old town and overlooking the gorgeous beach of Antibes book a table with a view at Michelin star restaurant Les Pecheurs. With their imaginative take on seafood dishes and their enthusiastic staff you will have an amazing experience.
Come early so you can visit their lovely pool area and enjoy their 7-course menu with a unique Mediterranean theme. It will be a challenge to pick from the a la carte menu of chef Nicolas Rondelli. Mediterranean red tuna, langoustines, lobster in a zucchini flower salad, those are just the starters after you will continue your culinary journey, inspired by the sea. No wonder this restaurant is called ‘The Fishermen’’.

La Môme in Cannes
Restaurant La Môme welcomes locals and foreigners to enjoy the pleasure of a little tranquility in the heart of the busy city of Cannes. Antoine and Ugo Lecorché opened the doors in 2015 and offer Mediterranean cuisine made with fresh and seasonal products. The restaurant gets its name from the famous Montmartre singer of the 1920s, Lucienne Suzanne, also known as the Môme Moineau.

Another yacht fan!
You can still feel this atmosphere of the roaring twenties while visiting this establishment, especially later in the evening when the DJ of La Môme takes over and gets the party started.
