Launched by the owners of African Queen Annie et Gilbert Vissian, L’Atelier d’Emile is also located on the Port of Beaulieu. I like this new place so much that I have already visited the restaurant 3 times in just a few months. Why? Well, it would be too long to list all the qualities of this place but let me share with you a few of them. First, it is about the restaurant itself. Either you can enjoy the boat view from the Port, either you can appreciate the open-kitchen. Personally, I like
to keep the outside terrace for summer time and the inside: terrace or inside of the restaurant for autumn – winter.
Secondly, their cuisine is different. They call it “bistronomy”, which is a mix between traditional and modern cuisine. You should try the Chef’s cuisine – Nicolas Landés – yourself to notice that he perfectly knows how to mix both style. Him and Grégory Martinez, the manager, run the restaurant as top stars! As you may guess, every meal is made of fresh and seasonal products. Also, every time I came, there was something new and surprising on the menu and I really appreciate how the staff loves to share their passion with you. They will always take the time to explain how the meals are made, which products have been used and why you would like it, or not. I am saying “or not” because the team is honest with the clients. If the portion is big, they will recommend you to take only one meal for two which is great because it leaves some space in your stomach for their yummy desserts! On top of all these great points, the prices are really reasonable. These are the main reasons why people keep coming to this wonderful address. Now, I am going to detail the menu I had the opportunity to enjoy the last time I went to L’Atelier d’Emile.
I like French food but I am not a fan of pure traditional French cooking. It seems like L’Atelier d’Emile is aligned with me. After a Parisian “Saint Germain” cocktail and a Ktipiti accompaniment, we started by sharing the truffle croque monsieur which is one of the restaurant’s specialties. It was not my first time but I love it more every time I taste it. Even though it’s simple, the truffle makes it special. I continued with scallops and zucchini mashed potatoes while my dining companion had clams and mussels with black saffron rice. As for the desert, we did not regret to have gone further than our stomachs could. Indeed, the apple pain perdu we went for was exceptionally good. I would have loved to try their vegan sweet Buddha bowl with coconut milk rice or their caramel cream with orange but the pleasure will be even bigger when I will next time.
Now, it’s your turn to try L’Atelier d’Emile and please tell me if you liked it or not as I’d love top know your point of view.
