No Stress Caffé, Propriano

As it was Sunday, we decided to take a stroll along the harbour front to work up an appetite. A huge amount of money has been spent on the harbour in Propriano, and it was nice to see people out and about in the sunshine, making the most of the promenade.

I was slightly concerned at the little girl leaning to ride her bike along here because although it’s nice and wide, she was obviously distracted by the pink Barbie tassels on the handlebars, and kept veering alarmingly towards the water! We decided to go and eat before be we were called on to do any ‘Baywatch’ type heroics, and settled on the No Stress Caffé.

Despite it’s name, the ‘No Stress’ is actually a restaurant with a good choice of simple and more gastronomic dishes, so it’s a good choice if you’re a big group with varied tastes. We decided to take one of the set menus with a choice of main courses and desserts.

I was torn between the risotto with slices of coppa (a cured meat) and Tomme (a strong local cheese) and the Spaghetti aux Gambas (big shrimps). In the end I plumped for the risotto and I think it was one of the best I have ever tasted. Yum!
