Restaurant "L'ISOLETTA"
La Bastide de Saint Tropez*****
St. Tropez, Var, France.

A delightful small, intimate restaurant with modern cuisine that drips with the products Provence served either in the Victorian "conservatory" glass and girder dining room or in the shade of the ancient olive trees on the terrace outside. One of our favorite eateries in France.

Since we did this story in 2019, there is a new chef, Francesco RUGGERI, and the restaurant renamed "L'ISOLETTA", the cuisine has changed to an Italian influenced menu and the color scheme has morphed into a riotous color palette of primaries and bold warm tones with comfy chairs and rustic tables - moving away from the grey/neutral former approach.

The hotel La Bastide de St. Tropez is a place that you never need leave since the restaurant and hotel is open all year and serves neals from the time you arise to the time your head hits the pillow. And since the hotel is small, it allows very personal service from the chef for both the main restaurant "L'ISOLETTA". Formerly there was the main restaurant plus a less formal bistrothat but now they have been combined into one larger restaurant. More on this hopefully after our Spring/Early Summer trip.

But this pleasant eatery is accompanied by the fairly new "BBQ By the Pool" that has an outside, open to the sun combo wood fired pizza oven and grill/plancha where they serve, yes, pizzas that are to die for, fish, chicken, lamb and other meats that are first browned on the grill then baked in the pizza oven where they gain that delicate wood smoke aroma. But their grilled vegetables in many incarnations are simply fantastic. You can eat right from your chaise longue alongside the pool or under the umbrellas at low tables with a view of the pool and the buildings that surround it. You can see more on our video page >>.

For the cooks amoung you, outstanding former chef, Michelin starred Chef Colinet, prepared one of his favorite refreshing summer recipes for us - see the preparation video >>
