Fodor's Review

Sunny Provencal flavors reign at this unpretentious restaurant, a La Jolla fixture since 1998. The light and airy dining room, lined with 1960s French movie posters is comfortable, if not romantic, an ideal setting for acclaimed chef Jean Michel Diot’s ever-changing menu that emphasized fresh ingredients, delicate sauces, and seafood. Classics like Coq au Vin and scallops Saint Jacques vie with more unusual fare like wild boar stewed in red wine, lobster with white corn sauce flavored with Tahitian vanilla and huckleberry-and-wine-sauced venison with spatzle. Among the desserts are crepes Suzette gilded with mandarin caramel. The daily two-course lunch special at $21.95 is a steal. The restaurant is moving in early 2015; check the website for the new La Jolla location.
