With palm trees framing splendid sea views across the bay from its alfresco terrace, the Royal Duchy Hotel certainly has that Riviera touch. Gently contemporary cooking is the order of the day, based on simple combinations that reflect the seasons. Thus a summer's meal sets out with ham hock terrine partnered by pea pannacotta and sweet mustard vinaigrette, followed by superb roast loin lamb of with new potatoes, seasonal vegetables and lamb nage. Fish lovers might be treated to pan-fried bream and scallops with olive crushed potatoes, ratatouille and sauce vièrge. For dessert, try warm ginger cake with candied carrot and mascarpone.
