Trip Report Les bons plans de Whathello - St Tropez - Resto

Jump to last reply

Les viviers du pilon.
Just at the exit of the parking du port leaving St Tropez towards la foulx.
A vivier is some place where you keep seafood alive.
This restaurant used to be a fish shop (how do you say poissonnerie ?) and they still sell fish.
They built a very beautiful terrace around a vivier where you can choose your crayfish should you want to.
I had a seafood platter with half a crayfish a few 'bulots' some oysters some mussels some 'clams' some prawns. No bigorneaux though.
I distributed some of it and had trouble to finish it.
A light dessert was then enough.
My wife had a daurade and my daughter a tuna mi-cuit (half cooked).
The staff is great even when you don't tip them and the view is just gorgeous. You are 20 feet from the St Tropez bay.
We had a magnum of Chablis ... always choose a magnum when you can the ratio gas/volume of wine is better than a normal bottle (oops I don't work for a US newspaper so disregard my advice on wine).
A perfect evening.
Quite expensive though. But we Europeans are cheap so it don't mean nuthin.
