If you’re looking for an exceptional dining experience be sure to plan on lunch or dinner at La Guérite on Isle St. Marguerite. A favorite among the clients of A.M.A Selections, this restaurant promises a magical dining experience. Situated on the coast below Fort Royal, the fortress where the man in the iron mask was imprisoned, the restaurant offers spectacular views of the sea and the city of Cannes from tables arranged on a rocky terrace embraced by the sea.
The restaurant was originally built in 1902, developing from a fisherman’s hut into one of the trendiest restaurants on the French Riviera. It attracts the famous and the not so famous for its delicious cuisine and exceptional location.
Aside from the beautiful setting, there is music and a lively social scene that makes La Guérite perfect for large groups as well as for those who prefer to quietly enjoy the ambience and delicious cuisine. Not surprisingly, the menu is focused on fresh seafood such as crab, octopus, lobster, shrimp, sea bass and langoustines. There are also traditional Mediterranean dishes such as pissaladière and salade niçoise as well as pasta, meat and chicken dishes.
La Guérite offers a boat shuttle service for guests with reservations (and you must have a reservation). If you prefer, you can take the ferry or charter a boat to reach the island as well. However you choose to go, allow time to explore the island before or after your meal (depending on whether you are having lunch or dinner) and to visit the museum at the fortress.
