La Colombe d’OrThe Riviera was a refuge for many artists during the war, and when the owners of La Colombe d’Or in St. Paul de Vence exchanged meals for works of art, they eventually found themselves with a world-class collection. Today, pieces by Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, and Joan Miró adorn the cozy dining room where guests savor regional specialties.

Great Lunching Experience in Provence
A mousse of olives and almonds to start. Wing of volaille over a bed of shave asparagus and beans. A beautifully cooked Daurade, and a small duck served with apricots and onions with a rhubard relish that was other worldly. Langoustine ravioli in a truffle sauce and beautiful desserts. A lovely lunch spot for relaxing and indulging with cuckoos sounding in the background.

A golden moment
I knew the restaurant and its reputation for having a world-class art collection. But what I hadn't expected was the excellent food on our plates. At the entrance of over-touristed St Paul de Vence I was dreading tourist fare, instead we got traditional French bistrot favorites like grilled sole and and a proper aioli with extra fresh vegetables and a touch of sea beans on the side. Because it was a beautiful day, we were treated to a table on their lovely terrace, mature fig trees the perfect protection against the sun. The crowd was a fair mix of tourists and locals and at the end of our meal we were invited to visit the exceptional art in the dining room. I have already started plotting on how to swing a night here for my next birthday!
