ZEN Restaurant at Pan Dei Palace | St Tropez, France | Located at the ground level of the Pan Dei Palais by Relais & Chateaux, is this lovely Restaurant, fusion of Thai / Indian with reminiscences of French Cuisine. ZEN is their concept, and you can see in the photo above, very very simple but classy and very tasteful. And come on… once you use French Graine Moutarde, what can go wrong right. !!!! It brings up all the right flavors. Precision, skill, sophistication… the dishes created by Sato, chef at the Pan Deï Palais, reflect a Japanese garden, the mark of serenity belonging to the country of the rising sun. In one word, “Zen”. Bon Appetit !!! CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

Serenity and escapism come together within a tranquil intimacy, making for a totally unique and relaxing getaway. The hotel overall has, same as the tales of St Tropez and big Thai / Indina fusion combined with the classic French style.
