REVIEW

La Terrasse

Résidence de la Pinède is one of the finest luxury hotels in St. Tropez, the former Mediterranean fishing village that is now the playground of the international jet set in summertime.  With a private beach and a Michelin two-star restaurant, it provides suitably sumptuous surroundings for those unfortunate enough not to be possessed of a yacht.  La Terrasse is the lunch-only al fresco restaurant in the hotel.  It is set on a gorgeous terrace under pine trees overlooking the Gulf of Saint Tropez. 

Chef Arnaud Donckele, who trained under Alain Ducasse, offers a varied menu of pastas, Asian dishes and sandwiches (lest you think this is a downmarket menu, consider the €38 croque-madame, comprised of an organic farm egg, Comté cheese, white cured ham and truffles).  You can mix and match pastas (tagliolini, green tagliatelle, penne, gnocchi) with the dressings (veal and beef Bolognaise, white cured ham carbonara, tomato sauce, sauce poulette à la ciboulette) or stick with lighter fare like a traditional Niçoise salad.
