Gastronomic cuisine with a casual atmosphere – some of the best restaurants here do not have Michelin stars. Fleur de Sel could easily be awarded one though – their food is certainly good enough. Grimaud on its own is a village worth a detour. It’s one of the prettiest old-walled-castle-villages in the Var.
