Tarascon - Food guide restaurant
Master restaurateur Christian Chay takes pride in perpetuating a family tradition dating back to 1945. His lovingly-prepared cuisine is also a tribute to regional culinary customs, although the sun-packed flavours have evolved with the times. The dishes here provide an explosion of Provencal essence, which is reflected in the walls of the bourgeois dining room, bedecked in the flowering colours of the South. A fine gourmet stop-off.
