Prices are high: the glamour dust sprinkled on fish and chips doesn’t come cheap! Quai Jean Jaurès is lined with mediocre restaurants with great portside views. Cheaper eats cluster near quai de l’Épi and the new port. Reservations are essential in high season; many restaurants close in winter.

Don’t leave town without sampling tarte Tropézienne, an orange-blossom-flavoured double sponge cake filled with thick cream, created by Polish baker A Mickla in 1955.
