Fodor's Expert Review La Reserve

$$$$ Beaulieu-sur-Mer Mediterranean

The first impression of old-world grandeur given by the beautiful pink building is carried through to every opulent corner of La Reserve. Its Michelin-starred Restaurant des Rois, a marvel of light and color, with a chandelier-bedecked salon lined with bay windows that offer views of a watery nirvana, has been a crown jewel of the Mediterranean since it opened in 1880. Chef Yannick Franque creates original recipes from fresh Mediterranean products, and does not disappoint: the Egg Mystery—whisked egg whites, crispy brioche crumble, slightly creamed truffle juice—is so delectable you'll overlook the fact you've paid €86 for a starter. For the price, go for the menu fixe for €155 or €205 (or try the vegetarian menu for €105). To save a few euros (barely, spaghetti is €46) on lunch, head to Vent Debout, perched over the pool. Reserve well in advance during the summer season.
