Fodor's Expert Review Skab

$$$$ Nimes French Fodor's Choice

Don't be put off by the name---a blend of the initials of owners Sébastien Kieffer and Alban Barbette---because this restaurant has an enchanting shaded garden terrace and a seasonal menu by chef Damien Sanchez that will not disappoint. Crispy Provençal lamb with seasonal vegetables makes for a great main dish, and for dessert there's poached apple sections on a crispy pastry with apple jelly, nougat, heavy cream, and gingerbread ice cream. Fixed-price menus run €79–€112, but the €40 weekday lunch menu is a great value—if you can get a table.
