Bandol is a chic (yes, we said chic) and sophisticated southern French spot with a live tree in the middle of the dining room. Because mother nature never goes out of fashion. Or something. The menu is a mix of sharing plates like tuna tartare and aubergine millefeuille, with larger mains like lobster linguine too. This place is the perfect start to a boozy night where you want to get a bit dressed up (sit at the golden bar), or your final destination for a date with someone who enjoys a bit of glitz.
