In the heart of the old village of St Tropez
Near the Port and the famous Quai de Suffren
It was back in 1999 that Frédérique and Fabrice opened their restaurant Salama. The combination of traditional Moroccan cuisine based on simple and convivial dishes, served in an intimate atmosphere nestled in heart of St Tropez village, brought immediate success.
In 2003, Frédérique and Fabrice had the opportunity to acquire new premises in Rue des Tisserands, not just more spacious, but a unique and magical place. Far from the crowds and noise, and yet so close to the Port of St Tropez, customers meander up a short side street, reminiscent of the alleyways of the medinas of the Maghreb.
Behind the ancient door a hundred year old bougainvillea watches over the covered garden and old stone building of this enchanting place. Today, after several stages of renovation, Salama offers its clientele all the magic and quintessence of Morocco.
« For that we take particular care of the decoration which gives this place its timeless atmosphere. That's why we've opted for a careful mix of traditional and modern. Most of the ornaments and decorations of Salama have been thought out and designed by us. They are then made by craftsmen in Marrakech, with whom we've been working for years. The crockery is also designed by a craftsman we've been collaborating with for over 15 years around an idea of simple tableware, perfectly adapted to this warm, convivial cuisine. »
It has always been our aim to develop Moroccan crafts, be they ancient or contemporary. That's why part of our time is spent searching through the flea markets of Marrakech or elsewhere.
The fine Moroccan dining that is the talk of St Tropez
The Salama offers a traditional cuisine, based uniquely on fresh, high quality produce. The bread and pastries are all home made. Our spices are brought over especially from Morocco to ensure the most delicate and subtle flavours for our clients.
