Salama

An exquisite Moroccan restaurant… which we have been invited to recently…

Is… a delight…

Entering into this exotic Moorish oasis… with elongated Moroccan lamps dangling from the high ceiling… into the dark mysterious ambience of the chic elegant dining room with an Oriental flavour…was an experience to remember…

Salama is located in the very heart of Saint-Tropez… the lovely village which was called Héraclea-Caccaliera… by the Roman invaders of 31 B.C…

A Moorish arched door leads into the verdant cool “jardin”… a room of long white corner divans with the romantic flicker of candlelight on the low wooden tables illuminating the dimly lit room… shaded by large sprawling leaves of green… of an ancient tree…

Moroccan pot of tea with mint leaves and a plate of sweets...

Pure magic…

The ivory-beige walls of raw stone with a large mirror… building the drama that IS the well-upholstered Bar… where the most sensuous oriental music emanates…

Languid… exotic…

Hypnotic…

The delicious Andalusian-Berber inspired dishes arrive in the earthenware of Couscous or Tajine… not to mention the exquisite delicate Pastilla… a traditional sweet and salty flavoured Berber Moroccan and Algerian dish… made with stuffing of baby pigeon or chicken and Moroccan spices…

Unforgettably delicious…

One is truly transported to the mysterious beauty of a Moroccan Riad… where the scent of orange blossom fills the air and the sound of spring water is trilling from a fountain of marble…

Heady…

The arched door leading into the "jardin".. at the exquisite Salama...

The young waiter bearing the plate of Moroccan delicacies accompanied by the leaves of mint that is our tea… pours the golden liquid from the silver tea pot into the little Moroccan glasses… raising it high with a talent of accuracy… where the brew in an elongated line fills the glasses… accurately…

A… simple gesture…

That excites the senses… and enhances the experience…

The proprietors of this amazing restaurant… are professional to a fault…

They are of little talk… with an impressive impact…

We admire their efficiency… their style…

This… restaurant…

Is an… exceptional experience…

Tajine earthenware dish...In the very heart… of this medieval village…
