Fodor's Expert Review La Colombe d'Or

$$$$ St-Paul-de-Vence French Fodor's Choice
It might be a bit overpriced for such simple fare, but where else in the world could you dine under a Picasso, on a terrace beside a ceramic Léger mural, or next to a pool where an idyllic garden comes complete with a Calder sculpture? The quirky but unpretentious Provençal menu has hardly changed over 50 years—its famous hors d’oeuvres de la Colombe (basket of crudité and hunks of charcuterie), the salmon quenelles, the Sisteron lamb, and the Grand Marnier soufflé flambé are still as acclaimed as ever. If you can't afford a room at the world-famous hotel, a meal here certainly does wonders for your Instagram.
