Chemin de la Batterie, 06400 Cannes, France
Located on Île Sainte-Marguerite, La Guérite is the second location of the St. Barth's restaurant of the same name and one of the French Riviera's most stylish spots. Only accessible by boat, the restaurant-cum–beach club is located on the water's edge and channels a hippie-chic aesthetic with alfresco seating and an oft-photographed sign that not-so-subtly informs that this is a place of relaxation (politics is listed as 5941 kilometers away). The crowd here is glamorous—yachts populate the harbor out front—but La Guérite offers more than just a great atmosphere; the food is excellent as well. Diners here can enjoy fresh cuisine like Greek salad, spicy grilled octopus, truffle roasted chicken and the catch of the day alongside a refreshing glass of wine and stunning views.
