This is one of the few truly French restaurants that has never bowed to the whims of fashion. For 26 years, Chef Roland Passot has enjoyed a passionate following. Opt for the five- or seven-course tasting menus and you'll understand why: meticulously prepared updated classics such as frog legs with trumpet mushroom ragout and butter-poached lobster with carrot sauce. The Provençal decor and attentive staff add to the charm of this delightfully haute but not at all haughty establishment. The adjoining Green Room is a good option for intimate dining.
