Part of one of the hotels owned by Andre Balasz, this Mediterranean beach-style restaurant on the edge of Crescent Beach will instantly transport you to the French Riviera or Coasta Italy. With white umbrellas, yellow-and-white awnings, and some dining tables and chairs in the sand, this three floor restaurant  is a perfect summer spot. The first rooftop is a bar, which is always open late, usually to 4 a.m. on weekends. The next step is a dining room with a roof but no sides, and the last step, literally in the treetops, is a deck topped only by strings of lanterns. The menu tends toward the South of France, with signature dishes like bouillabaisse, grilled lobster, filet mignon au poive, and moules frites.
