Located snug in the heart of St. Tropez's Old Quarter for most of a generation, Caprice des Deux is a loving and delicious celebration of authentic Provençal cuisine, updated with a few welcome contemporary accents. Brother and sister owners-chefs Sonia & Stéphane Avelin have staked their reputation to a cooking formula that includes only fresh, locally sourced products and a commitment to quality. The view looks out into the famous Place des Lices and the Citadel, invoking in the surroundings a cozy aura of romance and tradition. Outdoor tables trade intimacy for the bustle of the cobbled street and entertainment of people watching. Inside, the lighting is warm and the style is contemporary, clean and un-fussy. The soothing design allows for the focus to remain on dining and conversation.
Caprice des Deux is the epitome of robust French country cooking, with dishes mostly from the Provençal traditional, as well as Gascony and Aquitaine. Foie gras is a house specialty, as are various local seafood meals: big fillets of sea bass, freshwater crayfish, crab cannelloni and more. The bar is small but well stocked with suitable pairing wines and high quality spirits.
Caprice des Deux is open every evening in July and August, Thursday-Saturday evenings only during winter, and every evening except Tuesdays at other times. Call ahead to confirm hours.
