Le Deauville, a gourmet port stop

Ideally perched above the yachting basin, the new restaurant combines elegance and glamour in an atmosphere inspired by the 1930s.

Les Costes dock in Deauville!

The opening of Le Deauville restaurant on the presqu'île, at the foot of the belvedere and next to the footbridge, is making headlines in the local gastronomy world. Firstly, because it's Beaumarly's first restaurant in Deauville. Headed by Gilbert Costes and his son Thierry, this 1500-strong group has earned a prestigious reputation in Paris with its collection of establishments dedicated to the French Art de Vivre : Thoumieux, Café Beaubourg and Georges at the Centre Pompidou, Café Marly and Café Ruc near the Louvre or Maison du Caviar on the Champs Elysées, not to mention the Hôtel Amour. The motto that unites these establishments? "Fair, beautiful and good. What a program!

A restaurant surrounded by water

The other sensational factor in this location is, of course, its exclusive position at the entrance to the marina, in a building that was not originally intended to be a restaurant. Beaumarly won the town hall's tender and 100% redesigned the space to create a magical two-storey venue. "Location is always crucial for us," explains Clémence Mérelle, enthused by the charm of the perimeter, with its breathtaking view of the boats, the casino and the heights of Trouville-sur-Mer.

Chic and pop!

In addition to the monumental staircase, Le Deauville's bright, airy rooms are a real eye-catcher. "It was while strolling around the town to soak up its singularity that we retained certain elements with our English decorator Martin Brudnizki, who recently signed Les Jardins de Presbourg and La plage parisienne for us: Fernand Léger's drawing of the Deauvillais parasols is reproduced on one wall, the mosaic of the Pompeian baths is recalled by the bar and the peeler's stand, while the parquet flooring evokes the hue and studding typical of your iconic Planches". Resolutely pop with its palette of primary pastel colors, the restaurant nods to the vintage glamour of the 1930s. "The idea was not to be hyper-modern, but rather to recreate the comfortable, cosy atmosphere of a Norman home," stresses young manager Clémence Mérelle.

The Costes touch on the plate

This motto is reflected in a menu that has not been designed to ape that of typical restaurants. Dairy products, meats and seafood from Normandy all have their place in the kitchen. But they are revisited in the Beaumarly spirit. All within a reasonable price range, with a weekday starter-main course (or main course-dessert) at 30 euros or 35 euros for the three courses. "The idea was to offer simple dishes, simple products with our particular way of preparing and seasoning them, with the Costes touch! And it's obviously a hit, if the initial feedback since the inauguration last October is anything to go by. "On weekdays, we've had around 50 diners for lunch and dinner. On Saturday evenings, it's up to 200 guests". In fine weather, two terraces will be available to increase capacity. With Le Deauville, there's no doubt that gourmets will arrive in style.
