Concierge.com's insider take:
The flavors of Provence and the ocean commingle here in dishes like turbot with a light ratatouille and pigeon stuffed with foie gras. The hot tables are on the terrace overlooking the busy town below, with vistas of the sea and mountains. Don't worry if you get stuck in the main dining room: It has a Goldfinger-style retractable roof decorated with Provençal heraldry. The restaurant and the attached hotel are in the hills between Antibes and Nice and not easy to get to, but they are worth the drive through tortuously narrow roads and the town's medieval citadel.
Open Wednesdays and Fridays through Sundays 12:30 to 2 pm and 7:30 to 10 pm; Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 7:30 to 10 pm.
