Grand Cafe Restaurant | St Tropez, France | Located at the Hotel Saint Lamour la Tartane, this Asian Restaurant with dishes inspired in Thailand and Japan has a nice atmosphere and the final product is very good. I love my Tom Yong, and I must say they made it very well with fresh prawns from the Golf of St Tropez. The ambiance is very nice, low lights and a center chandelier take over the room. To enter you will go through the bar area. I felt that the service was rather informal, and my waiter in particular was a bit patronizing, trying to explain me or make a point why they only offer one choice of White Wine by the Glass. Excuse me…. Asian Restaurant with huge Thai influence and you only offer Chardonnay? Quick note for you, how about a good Chenin, the best appariement Monsieur. Great Tom Yong above, as I said with enormous fresh tasteful prawns aux French Riviera. (photo above) As my main course I went for the Tuna Tataki with steam vegetables over coriander and ginger. Nothing better in my own personal gastronomy choices than to have the combined flavors of this two. Food wise I give then and 8 out of 10. Presentation wise, well I think they’ve got a bit lazy, and take advantage of the low lights concept. Another point was that I ordered my classic Filthy Vodka Martini, as you know I always do, but it was not possible, since they had ran out of olives and olive juice. Anyhow, Bon Appettt. !!!

Plage des Salins in Saint Tropez | Saint Tropez, France | Another alternative options to Plage Pampelonne. Less crowded or commercial, with a nice restaurant Les Salins which I am planning to try today for lunch. Ten minutes by car from the Port of St Tropez. Ride the Route des Salins which is the prolongation of Rue Gambetta, and you will be there in not time.

Hotel Check IN at Hotel Saint Amour la Tartane | St Tropez, France | Approximately 10 minutes from Saint Tropes Port, is Hotel Saint Amour la Tartane, on the Route to Plages de Salins. A lovely villa based concept hotel, on a classic Provence style. 28 Suites and Villas settled around a clear blue swimming pool (which I wish would be heated to jump in right now). Definitely a complete Saint Tropez experience compared to my previous stay at Rue Gambetta close to the port. Tonight dinner at their Asian restaurant. Now off to Plage Pampelonne and Le Club 55 for Lunch. More to come upon check out. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
