Plage Keller à Antibes

Gigi Saint Tropez restaurant in Ramatuelle is one of the restaurants of Laurent de Gourcuff and his company Paris Society. There are 360 seats on a two-hectare site. The restaurant which opened two years ago has met with exceptional success. 280 people are turned away every day, for lack of space… Italian cuisine, a magnificent setting… 
The restaurant opened in 2020, so it has few reviews on Trip Advisor. The 69 reviews give a score of 3 out of 5.

The main qualities of the restaurant are the setting, the decoration. The main complaints are the quality of the cuisine, the prices, and the sometimes unfriendly staff. 18 opinions are “Excellent or Very good” and 23 opinions are “Poor or Horrible”… The cuisine is rated 3.5 out of 5, the service is rated 3 out of 5, and the quality/price ratio 2.5 out of 5… We tried Gigi ourselves in Saint-Tropez. The setting is superb, the atmosphere warm. Indeed, the prices are unreasonable, but unfortunately, the Côte d'Azur is full of very expensive addresses...

We find that the setting is really worth the detour. Our Pardo 38 can drop you off in front of the restaurant, a tender from the restaurant can pick you up on board.
