French Miso Café

The restaurant is the creation of Tomoko Jones and Eric Bovy. and the name “French Miso Café” reflect the diversity of their origins.. Eric is from the south of France and runs the kitchen and menus, Tomoko is from Japan and manages the dining room. The result is an adorable setting where one can enjoy a traditional Japanese and French breakfast at the same table. A romantic French café with wonderful Japanese influences. (Note: Check before you go as they often close in the summer)

Le Vallauris

Dine in a restored historical landmark, but it’s no dusty schoolroom. You’ll feel as if you’ve entered the home of a French relative who wants nothing better than to make you happy. Flemish tapestries and Louis-XV furniture sets the mood that carries through on the menu.

The daily offerings are handwritten on a large board brought to your table to stand like artwork on an easel while you make your selections.

If you prefer to dine al fresco, the large garden patio is complete romance. Here you are enveloped by the colors of gorgeous fresh flowers, lupe ficus trees and the scent of the sweet desert air.

Combine that with first-class service, good food and the intoxicating hospitality and you are in for a real treat.
