Individual ratings for Le Club 55

Directly on the five kilometre long beach of Pampelonne, between reeds, pines and the sea.
This may well be the most famous beach restaurant in the world, where stars and starlet love to present themselves. White-washed tables and chairs sit beneath a large roof made of raffia mats, decked in bright blue table cloth, and set with shell- and starfish-painted plates. The interior decoration and the service are unpretentious, in stark contrast with the discriminating clientele.
Proprietary pier, beach club, bar, restaurant with a sprawling patio, beach boutique, and secure parking lot.
Simple, honest, Mediterranean cuisine using produce from the restaurant's own organic farm. Start your lunch in style with a "panier de crudités" – crisp raw vegetables spread lavishly on a wooden board and served with an anchovy dip. Move on to grilled fish or crawfish served with ratatouille.
Wine List
The well-appointed wine menu lists a fine selection of champagnes and rosé wines. One of the rosé wines is called "Le Club 55" and made from grapes Patrice de Colmont grows on his organic farm.
Relaxed and unpretentious.

Le Club 55 Restaurant, Ramatuelle

Le Club 55, named after the year it was founded, is an integral part of the cult and myth of Saint-Tropez. It has been this way ever since Brigitte Bardot, Curd Jürgens and the film crew of "And God Created Woman" showed up in this untouched stretch of beach and had Madame de Colmont cook for them. The crew loved her fare so much they came back the very next day. Shortly after, Madame and Monsieur de Colmont applied for and obtained a restaurant license. Now in the family for two generations, the restaurant with its proprietary beach club has been operated for several decades by their son Patrice, whose focus is on simplicity and continuity. Many of his staff have been working here for 20 or indeed 30 years. A very well coordinated team, they seem perfectly at ease even when celebrities like the former King Juan Carlos, Sylvester Stallone, Heidi Klum or Naomi Campbell come to dine here. The restaurant is open daily from 11:00 to 18:00 CET between Easter and the end of October.
Price range €€
The place seems to be miraculously frozen in time. No other beach club along the Plage de Pampelonne does a better job at keeping the myth of Saint-Tropez alive.
There is no point in coming here without a reservation. Table reservations are only possible over the phone. During the high season it is always a good idea to book a table two weeks in advance.
