Within the Hôtel de Paris, the Louis XV offers one of the finest dining experiences on the Riviera, and thus the world. Superstar chef Alain Ducasse oversees the refined but not overly adorned cuisine that has three Michelin stars to its name. The restaurant reopened after a mammoth renovation in 2017 with a menu lighter, and more contemporary, than ever before. Head chef Dominique Lory presides over the painstakingly sourced yet awesomely executed starters like San Remo shrimp on a bed of rockfish jelly with caviar. Everything is light and attuned to the seasons, with intelligent, modern interpretations of Provençal and northern Italian dishes. The old-school service, decor (the frescoed ceiling includes the portraits of Louis XV’s six mistresses), and the sheer amount of cutlery used makes for a memorable evening.
