Le rocher

I am not unfamiliar with Le rocher now as we had already ate there on July 14th for Bastille Day. Since we decided to make a girl’s trip to St-Rafaël with my grand-mother, I suggested that we go back to this place as there are only a handful of restaurants on the beach.

I wouldn’t put Le Rocher as one of my favorite restaurants in France. I have eaten at better ones but if you are going to St-Raphaël, I highly suggest eating on the beach and as mentioned above, they aren’t a ton of restaurants. The ambiance is nice however. Lots of young and tanned people socializing, drinking and talking with a cigarette in their mouths and a drink in their hands. It’s a young and vibrant atmosphere and I do like it. The decor of the restaurant is very pleasing. Lots of warm and dark colors such as brown purple and orange.

The food is decent. I had a caprese salad (tomato and boccoccini). It was good but I wasn’t convinced by the use of beefsteak tomato. They were too big for the pieces of boccoccini and not as tasty as other types of tomatoes. A smaller and juicier one would have made a nicer dish. I also had some salmon fettucini and those were very good. I am a bit sucker for fish and this one was nicely cooked.IMG_0668The server was nice but he kind of left us in the middle of the meal. A girl took care of us for our drinks and the bill. I think it was because the restaurant was packed, but it was still a bit weird.

Overall, Le Rocher is a decent place to eat at. You mostly pay for the view and the location, not so much the food which is fine for some people who just want some drinks on the beach with friends. The 14th of July menu was much better and watching the fireworks on the beach lying on a beach chair was worth it.
