A true oasis of freshness and sweetness in the heart of Saint-Tropez, the Bastide de Saint-Tropez invites you to discover all the subtleties of Mediterranean ingredients and gastronomy. Thrill your taste buds with local flavours!

 

A taste alliance between land and sea

Philippe Colinet, chef of the Michelin starred Olivier restaurant here at the Bastide de Saint-Tropez, is once again delighting his guests with a menu combining traditional ingredients sourced from the Saint-Tropez region with his usual original and innovative touch. A la carte, these are classic revisited dishes such as a sublime foie gras with strawberry pulp or the local chapon de pêche with aniseed juice. For a shared experience with your table, choose the menu ‘Entre terre et mer’ (Between Land and Sea), which celebrates the unexpected and subtle combination of langoustine and white truffle shared among four dishes, followed by a dessert.

 

A meal by the water...

In addition to its Michelin-starred restaurant, the Olivier, the Bastide de Saint-Tropez offers a range of dining options with its Bastide BBQ, offered at noon under the fig tree, and the Bistro, ideally located by the pool. Here, in a relaxed atmosphere, you can taste the freshest of ingredients, combined in the purest Mediterranean tradition with that touch of inventiveness that makes all the difference. Choose from pissaladière, shrimp, seabass fillets or saint-pierre (John Dory), as well as langoustine to enjoy flavour-filled moments away from the hustle and bustle of this most fashionable of seaside resorts. Whether you're with your partner or friends, enjoy the best of the local gastronomy.
