Off season normally standards slip in the south of france. Not here. Welcomed with a big warm smile. Food was delicious to be honest. The decor is a bit aged but it adds to the character of the place. It needs better advertising as being in a hotel it's quite hidden away

We found this restaurant (there is also a hotel) by chance at the beginning of January. It was the best surprise of our whole trip. The food with influences from Madagascar was in our point of view even worth a Michelin guide entry. Beautifully served with a wonderful taste. We were almost alone which was unbelievable consider the quality of... More

Since in October a lot of restaurants in the mountain villages already close, we were very happy that this place was still open. They have a 2 or 3 course menu for € 20,90 or € 25,90. Menu offers 4-5 choices per course. The restaurant is situated in a hotel and offers an astonishing view during daytime. They also have... More

The interior seating area is full of light and decor is both simple and elegant. The proprietor. was kind enough to accomodate my husband's preference to eat outside. The food was delicious, with a slightly exotic twist on French cuisine. We enjoyed our experience very much.

The food here was an unexpected bonus as we were in the hotel for an overnight stopover. Not your typical French restaurant. The cuisine was described as Madagascan and was excellent. It was carefully prepared with light sauces but flavoursome.

This restaurant is definitely a hidden jam of Côte d'Azur. It's cozy, with a nice garden and an amazing view. Food was really delicious, exactly what you want to eat after the whole day of hiking in small mountain villages - healthy, simple, tasty and nicely served.

As a native of Gattières I was very pleased to see that the Beau Site has been renovated and reopened. The settings are pretty nice, and they did a good job with the redecoration of the dining room. It feels modern, airy and unpretentious. The concept to bring the Indian Ocean cuisine to the French Riviera sounds exciting as well,... More
