La Reine Jane

Restaurant La Reine Jane in HyèresLa Reine Jane (Hyères)

Five minutes from their beachside restaurant Le Marais, Lisa and David Pirone have given back a little luster to the legendary La Reine Jane hotel, shot by Godard in Pierrot le Fou! Across from the small marina, a mulberry tree done up with string lights shades the terrace, while the dining room remixes New Wave classics: a grand piano, a pink onyx bar, vintage furniture, etc. As for the menu, designed by Georgiana Viou from La Piscine in Marseille, expect lovely dishes like artichokes in vinaigrette (€8); homemade country terrine (€7); bass ceviche in coconut milk, ginger and cilantro (€16); fish and chips in three types of breading, plus homemade tartare sauce (€17)… Or, our lunch that day: copious cod rillettes served with homemade pickles (€7); Mediterranean red mullet wrapped in smoked bacon, served with a jus de volaille, fresh spinach and homemade mashed potatoes (€24); before a homemade lemon meringue tart, that wasn’t even half bad (€7)! To drink, there’s an organic-vegan Provence rosé from the Château Sainte Marguerite (€9 a glass), a red Figuière from the Combard family in Lalonde-les-Maures (€10), or even a Crozes-Hermitage from Combier (€38 a bottle). À la carte €28-51, kids’ menu €12, brunch €35 (Sunday). Double rooms starting at €150 a night. // G.D.
