Exquisite Cuisine by a Renowned Chef


U Palmentu is a restaurant and cocktail bar located beneath the Hotel-Restaurant Le Vieux Moulin. Once a simple bar-snack establishment, featured in Gault & Millau 2022-2023, it has been transformed by Dominique Cavalli into a chic dining venue. Here, you can savor exquisite dishes prepared by David Tannevart, an accomplished chef and pastry instructor.

View Overlooking the Port of Centuri

The restaurant's terrace offers a direct view of Centuri's harbor, bathed in the glow of summer evening sunsets. You may prefer the family-friendly atmosphere of the terrace adjacent to the bar, complete with continuous service. The restaurant has 70 seats, making it a suitable venue for events, christenings, birthdays, and musical evenings.
