We love the Relais de Gorre, though it's a little further away. The food is great - French traditional, and the welcome is always warm. You can sit out in the lovely terrace under the lime trees in the summer.

Hostellerie Saint-Jacques at St Saud is a wonderful restaurant. It offers inventive and fun French cuisine served in a range of weird and wonderful plates and bowls with humour and skill. At the more expensive end of the market - it is defintely worth a visit especially for a special occasion. It's very popular so its worth booking a table before you arrive in Pensol - or we can do it for you.
