A gastronomic temple celebrating local cuisine
Super chef Arnaud Donckele makes local produce the centre of attention at the hugely acclaimed restaurant within Residence de la Pinede, an opulent hotel on Bouillabaisse Beach.
There’s currently a culinary movement happening in St Tropez and leading the way with three Michelin stars is La Vague d’Or. Come here to sample some of the most revered cuisine in the Riviera with a beautiful backdrop over the Bay of St Tropez.
Since his arrival in Provence, Normandy-native Donckele has been exploring the richness of his natural surroundings and transporting diners on a rustic journey through the Mediterranean.
Using ingredients from the Var region, he orchestrates an a la carte and prix fixe tasting menu of locally-inspired dishes with a Mediterranean twist. The chef’s genius cannot be underestimated, in 2013, he was the youngest chef ever to be awarded a Michelin star at only 35 years old.
Pick from the likes of zitone pasta stuffed with black truffle and foie gras, lobster ravioli, rabbit with absinthe and bacon, and lamb serviced two ways. And leave room for one of the mouth-watering desserts, such as nougat ice cream with caramelised almonds and citrus tart topped with meringue.
There is also an outstanding all-French wine list and the service is exceptional.
As Residence de la Pinede has its own private jetty, travellers can take a short tender ride from their superyacht anchored off the coast directly to the venue. To see the types of yachts to rent in St Tropez, view all luxury yachts available for charter in the South of France.
