Lemon: the emblem of chef Colinet's cuisine

Awarded a star in the Michelin Guide for the second consecutive year, our chef Phillippe Colinet has seen his cuisine once again recognised and acclaimed by his peers as much as it is by the guests of the restaurant Colette. He offers a refined, aesthetic gastronomy that celebrates its Mediterranean roots. Naturally, the lemon has become its emblem.


Lemon at the heart of chef Colinet's approach

Provence is a region remarkably rich in flavours of all kinds. Chef Colinet has developed a network of friendship and trust with many local producers, market gardeners, breeders, fishermen, oyster farmers, etc. In the same spirit, he decided to cultivate lemon trees on the terraces of the Hotel Sezz and the restaurant Colette. Symbol tree of the Côte d'Azur, the lemon tree enchants with its glazed foliage and the sweet scents it gives off. Lemon, with its remarkable balance of sweetness and acidity, can be used in a wide range of dishes, marrying particularly well with the taste of seafood, and with desserts, to which it brings a zesty freshness...


And on the menu...

Chef Colinet places lemons in a prime position on the Restaurant Colette menu. Lemon accompanies aperitifs and refreshments with homemade lemonade as well as sea bream and John Dory. In its black version, it brings out the subtle flavours of pigeon. For dessert, the Chef offers an all-lemon surprise to conclude your meal in style. You’ll be completely seduced by this creamy, candied, icy and tangy variation, evoking all the possibilities that lemon has to offer and presenting them beautifully.


A cornerstone of the identity of Mediterranean cuisine, the lemon has also become one of chef Colinet's favourite ingredients. Come and discover all the subtleties on the menu of the Restaurant Colette while you relax in the garden among the lemon trees.
