Saintes-Maries de la Mer

While long weekending in the Camargue, I was given the name of an excellent restaurant by the owner of the B&B where I was staying, who knew the owners and the quality of their local fare. And so it was that I ate at Le Fleur de Sel, not one but two evenings!

A gastronomic delight with excellent, friendly service:  Chef Alexandra spontaneously created a two-course vegan dish for my friend, while I enjoyed the menu fixe – un regal!

  1. What a wonderful menu for 28 euros. At this late stage in my life I have decided to become a foody! I have denied myself so much pleasure food wide, all in the name of economy, that I think I have many pleasures in store. Starting from today I am going to start experimenting! Thanks for sharing!

    Bonne journee

    As a retired restaurateur I adore reading about restaurants in far away places. The name is wonderful. A Fleur de Sel. Salt is such an important ingredient in cooking. In a large tray by my stove I keep a selection of salts from all over the world.

    • In the markets here, you can buy all types and flavors/colors of salt, which I am slowly discovering. Thanks so much for commenting and wishing you a bonne semaine (good week)!
