Freshly caught fish, vegetables straight from the farm, and rich soil…
This is our essence at Ne Quittez pas.

A summer resort in southern France is what Chef Toshio Tanabe imagined. At Ne Quittez pas, you can experience the atmosphere of a nature-surrounded auberge in southern France. You will enjoy the “power of life” through our fresh seafood and vegetables. Our mission is to provide a comfortable time for everyone. That is the spirit of Ne Quittez Pas (Please don't leave).
