Roger Vergé Lounge - Mougins
The Roger Vergé
As a tribute to our founder Roger Vergé, L'Amandier has created a special lounge specially decorated in collaboration with Denise Vergé, which can accommodate 20 guests and where a menu full of flavors awaits you, worthy of the creator of the Cuisine de Soleil, the man who symbolizes conviviality and sharing.
Thanks to Mrs. Vergé
Roger Vergé is one of the key figures of contemporary French gastronomy. Born on April 7, 1930 in Commentry in the Allier, his passion for cooking came from his aunt Célestine, whom he honored in his many books.
He contributed to the development of French cuisine’s reputation, notably by joining forces with Paul Bocuse and Gaston Lenôtre to create the French Pavilion at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. He reigned over Le Moulin de Mougins for over 30 years.
The story of Le Moulin de Mougins began in 1969, when Roger Vergé and his wife Denise settled on the French Riviera after stops in Cavalière and Jamaica. Very quickly, the venture was successful and the first star in the Michelin Guide arrived in 1970. The second star was awarded in 1972, with the third following in 1974.
The first edition of the Stars of Mougins pays tribute to his contribution to the city of Mougins and to gastronomy.

A friend of the arts and artists, over the years he transformed his restaurant into a living museum with works by his friends César Baldaccini, Arman, Folon or Tobiasse.
In addition to the Moulin, Roger Vergé created a second historic address in the 1970s, L'Amandier de Mougins.
With its 1000 m2 on 3 floors, L'Amandier quickly became the reference for creative and tasty cuisine in Nice, a must for all artists on vacation on the French Riviera.
Then in the early 2000s, the Amandier wound down, until its reopening in 2011 thanks to the titanic renovation work undertaken by British financier Chris Levett.
