L'Estelle en Camargue

Saintes Maries de la Mer - Food guide restaurant

Set inside Hotel Estelle, a luxurious establishment built around a peaceful lake, this modestly-titled eatery overflows with generous sunshine and good manners. You can enjoy a light lunch by the pool here at midday, or a gastronomic evening dinner complete with candles and crackling fire. Sven Fuhrmann leads guided tours of this French gastronomic mecca for the many overseas guests. Musts include the sole meunière, Charolese beef, Bresse chicken and veal kidneys with mustard, not forgetting local specialities such as the bar en croûte de sel and rack of lamb with thyme.
