I'm traveling to France in about a month and am looking for affordable, good quality restaurants in Provence (Avignon, Arles, Aix, St. Remy) as well as on the French Riviera (Monaco, St. Tropez, Eze, Cassis, etc.). Any recommendations would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks,

-Eric

    Eric,

     

    Here are some recommendations from a colleague who lives outside of Cannes:

    Ahhh...The Negresco !! Fantastic hotel on the Promenade Des Anglais, with lots of art and features from the Napoleonic period. I once had a superb lunch there....someone else was paying :)  (From NewHiltonMembr: this is in Nice)

     

    In Nice , worth a visit is the Cafe de Turin. Seafood

    is a speciality and is just off the usual tourist

    trail to be authentic Nice. Staff only speak French

    most of the time. Adds to the experience :)

    Website gives an idea of the place. But advise to get

    there early, as they don't take reservations. Best

    deal is the oysters...

    The same site gives a list of all the 'best'

    restaurants in Nice.

    To be honest, there are so many, your sister will be

    spoilt for choice. If she's never been to france

    before, just remember that the French don't rush their

    food. You can take 2-3hrs to eat and it's OK. As a

    result, don't expect the waiters to always be at hand

    every minute. You need to catch their eye. And expect

    to wait 5 mins for them to return with your

    request....but in most cases , they know how to serve.

     

    For Paris, again...too many good places to mention.

    But one that's worth a small detour. Le Cafe Du

    Commerce in the 15th arrondissment.

    Used to go there from time to time when I lived in the

    city......

    Have a wonderful trip!  I think I'm doing the south of France next year so please post here when you get back and let us know all of your wonderful findings!

    This is really helpful!

    If people will share real stories it helps so much when traveling.

    Will be staying at Marriott in Cap d'Ail in mid-September as well as time in Provence for a couple of weeks.  Then in Paris for a week.  Any recommendations you can make from your trip would be great.  Am interested in restaurants in both areas as well as hotels in the Provence area.
