Les restaurants étoilés

On the route of the Michelin starred restaurants

Cradle of Auguste Escoffier, historic figure of great French cuisine, the Côte d’Azur is a real gastronomy and creative destination. The multitude of stars awarded to Côte d’Azur restaurants pays tribute to the great talent and inventiveness of the chefs who continue to dazzle gourmets from the world over. Here are some restaurants on the Côte d’Azur where prestigious chefs officiate – including Alain Ducasse, Bruno Oger, Mauro Colagreco, Alain Llorca, Marcel Ravin…


Did you know? It’s not just about the sun shining in the azure sky…

There are also lots of stars – the ones the Michelin guide awards every year to the best of French gastronomy. The latest edition has honoured some forty restaurants on the Côte d’Azur. Among them in 2022 is the Italian-Argentine chef Mauro Colagreco, who already holds three stars with his Le Mirazur restaurant in Menton, and who has been awarded a star for the Ceto restaurant in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. And Marcel Ravin, the chef at the Blue Bay restaurant in Monaco, who has been awarded his second star!

This year, Château Eza and its Chef Justin Schmitt are making their debut in the Michelin Guide, earning their first star! Set in the historic medieval village of Èze, the gourmet restaurant serves classic Mediterranean and French cuisine à la carte, all served with a duplex terrace overlooking the blue waters of the French Riviera.

In Fayence, Terre Blanche Hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Faventia, earned its first Michelin star. Chef Christophe Schmitt offers a refined cuisine, delicately inspired by the seasons, the Provencal land and regional products.


Perched on the slopes of La Colle-sur-Loup on the Côte d’Azur at the entrance to Saint-Paul de Vence, the horizon plunging into the Mediterranean, bathed in light, in the heart of the olive trees and vineyards of eternal Provence, reveals the Michelin-starred Restaurant Alain Llorca.

Authentic and mineral, the bastide welcomes you by opening on the surroundings and the village of Saint Paul de Vence. The chef invites you to come and share a moment of pleasure and conviviality, as a couple or with friends. Ode to the sea and iodized flavors, celebration of the products of the earth and the soil, creations imprinted with the Mediterranean and respectful of the seasons, Alain Llorca’s menu is a real invitation to the pleasure of the pupils and the taste buds.

Also, the famous Louis XV, the three-star restaurant at the Hôtel de Paris in Monaco. Which is where in 1990 the Alain Ducasse story really began!


The Hôtel de Paris is not the only luxury Côte d’Azur hotel to have won the approval of the Michelin inspectors.

L’Hermitage (Le Vistamar), the Monte-Carlo Bay (Blue Bay), the Metropole (Le Yoshi and Joel Robuchon Monte-Carlo), close neighbours, also appear in the famous guide.

France has not been forgotten! The Chèvre d’Or and Cap Estel (La Table de Patrick Raingeard) in Eze, La Réserve de Beaulieu (Restaurant des Rois), the Grand Hôtel du Cap in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, the Château du Domaine Saint-Martin in Vence, Belles Rives (La Passagère) and Cap d’Antibes Beach Hotel (Les Pêcheurs) in Juan-les-Pins, Le Maybourne Riviera (Ceto) à Roquebrune Cap Martin, La Réserve in Ramatuelle, (La Voile), Château de Valmer (La Palmeraie) at La Croix-Valmer also enjoy this privilege.
