Mathias Dandine Gourmet Restaurant
in Gémenos, in Provence

Yesterday and today, cleverly combined

Welcome to Mathias Dandine’s gourmet restaurant in Gémenos, where the traditional and the modern are cleverly combined. The Chef will be thrilled to welcome you to La Magdeleine, an 18th-century Provençal country house.

This beautiful historical building retains the elegant feel of Provence’s beautiful properties: large French windows with traditional interior shutters which overlook the grounds, fireplaces which offer incredible warmth when the temperature starts to drop, traditional French ceilings which reflect the stature of this prestigious property and the simple yet sophisticated Provençal terracotta tiles which create a truly cosy feel.

Rooms are cleverly decorated in contrasting tones of blue, green and yellow, while furniture has clean and contemporary lines.

The ideal combination for a truly unique setting in which to enjoy a gourmet experience which will transport you, created by Mathias Dandine.

Mathias Dandine’s cuisine

Mathias Dandine has always loved the region of Provence with its incredible flavours and intense aromas. He knows everything there is to know about the very best products, their producers and their history, from juicy, sun-drenched fruit and colourful vegetables to beautifully fresh fish.

Every day, he pays tribute to these ingredients by enhancing their natural qualities to create his gourmet cuisine. The Chef creates inspiring and perfectly balanced dishes from this unique repertoire.

His secret? He prioritises local products which he cooks in a resolutely contemporary style. In this way, the cuisine served at La Magdeleine’s gourmet restaurant in Gémenos is the perfect combination: “visually appealing, high quality and intensely flavourful”.

The restaurant at La Magdeleine

As the Chef and owner of the property, Mathias Dandine offers his guests a warm welcome in his gourmet restaurant where the art of entertaining comes to life in a contemporary Provençal setting.

On entering the restaurant, take a seat at a beautifully laid table. Everything seems so simple, yet so sophisticated. The Chef has chosen a white dinner service for his dishes, offering the ultimate simplicity to better showcase his cuisine; another dinner service is used for desserts.

The restaurant’s disparate silvery cutlery and glasses take diners back in time, creating a very elegant setting with all the charm of a bygone era.

Prepare to enjoy an exhilarating gourmet experience in Gémenos, in Provence.
