Fodor's Review

If heaven had a restaurant, this would be it. Arched bay windows, checkered marble floors, live jazz, and exquisite garden views create a stunning backdrop. The 14 chestnut tables surround a sunken gazebo where orchids bloom. Doubling as a gallery, Le Basilic displays paintings by local artists, and, each Friday and Saturday (by request), an artist paints while you dine. The dishes here—created by French chef Henri Charvet—are served beneath silver domes by tuxedoed waiters. The menu changes every four months but is always comprised of fine French-Mediterranean cuisine. As a keepsake, guests are presented with a box of French truffles and refined recipe cards recapping the bill of fare. Note that the dress code is "resort elegant," reservations are recommended, and children are not allowed. Since this restaurant is rather intimate, expect quality service, meaning that some people might feel uncomfortable being watched by the attentive waiters.
