Nestling in an oasis of greenery, La Réserve Rimbaud invites you to discover the pleasures of a culinary interlude, in the shade of plane trees, close to the city centre yet far from its hustle and bustle.
With its terrace following the contours of the river Lez, its plane trees providing a breath of coolness on a summer evening and its soft, intimate evening lights, everything about it ensures that your riverside interlude is peaceful and luxurious…
Whatever the season, admire the view of the meandering river while you enjoy lunch and or a relaxing evening with friends or business colleagues at La Réserve Rimbaud. Our restaurant was awarded a Michelin star in 2009.
