Provençal cuisine is based both on the quality of its local produce and the chefs that make you sniff the air and tickle your taste buds.
Come and enjoy yourself in the restaurants of our famous chefs, as well as the small authentic restaurants and bistros both on the coast and further inland.
Provençal cuisine – taste the sun on your plate!
