Fodor's Expert Review L'Epuisette
Artfully set on a rocky, fingerlike jetty surrounded by the sea, this fine seafood restaurant offers gorgeous views of crashing surf on one side and the port of Vallon des Auffes on the other. Chef Guillaume Sourrieu has acquired a big reputation (and a Michelin star) for sophisticated cooking featuring the fresh catch of the day—Atlantic turbot in citrus rind with oxtail ravioli, and slow-cooked sea bass baked in a salt-butter crust and walnut oil are some top delights—matched with a superb wine list. Save room for dessert: the chocolate tart with bananas and pepper ice cream is amazing. The fixed-price menus aren't cheap (lunch, €75; dinner, €110, €145) but they're a better deal than à la carte.
