Cap Estel hides one of most discreet, and insanely pricey Riviera hotels, a place where older A-listers stay. We’re not recommending it as a hotel, but we do like chef Patrick Raingeard’s Michelin-starred restaurant within, set in glorious, seafront gardens. Food becomes theater by way of zucchini flowers on verbena ice cream and crayfish atop Gewürztraminer wine jelly. Raingeard is big on local produce, sourcing carrots from above Nice, girolles mushrooms from Provence forests, and red mullet from the local coast. Just beware the initial offer of Champagne, which clocks in at 30€ or more per glass.
