A year on and just as the same as last year

Good local food which they have cooked a thousand times so it is always good. The staff freandly and happy to see you, the wine is cold and the welcome is warm.

This restaurant was clearly the worst experience during our 1 week trip in Southern France. Service was rood and extremely slow, (eventhough I speak perfect French!). We first asked for sparkling wine for aperitif. They did not have, and the comment from the waiter was: If you don't want a proper aperitif like GT or vodka, take the bottle of... More

We went for a coffee after the journey to Biot. The staff received Us in an unusual way for people who don't speak the language: we tried to express in French, asking for water and coffees, the waiter replied very quickly, probably saying it was just a restaurant, in his language, without saying hello when we went out, or without...

Over priced for what it was. Charged 8 euros for a bottle of water. Staff were attentive one minute then ignored . Long wait for second course. Good location

Very nice setting, but what a take-on. The nicest thing about this restaurant was the friendly dog, who had more charm than the lot of the serving staff and manager put together. Definite attitude problem here, and I do speak French. All I can say is that I was very unimpressed with the food standard and level of service. If... More

Perennial Biot institution - over 25 years in the same incarnation - does not change much. Lots of ambience and a seductive setting which can be good if you choose well: can also find service (and other qualities) overwhelmed by tables for 40, and/or occasional lapses in attention. Hard to beat in the village itself as cuisine industrielle seems to... More

After making a booking to eat at Les Arcades on the first night of our holiday in Biot, I have to say the experience left us feeling, rejected,ripped off and slightly appalled at the Staff's rude and disgraceful behaviour!!! We arrived at Les Arcades on time at 20:00 hrs and spoke to a pleasant and helpful chap at the bar... More

The setting is romantic but food was disappointing. Fix menus and minimum orders make a light lunch impossible. I would not go back there there are much better places in Biot.

We found this place over 30years while visiting with friends and return every time we are staying on the Cote d Azur, great local food served family style in a lovely quiet outdoor patio. Had a lovely lunch on starting with a delicious courgette tian followed my more local cuisine returned the following week and were so disappointed to find... More

Historic location, nice service and value for money in a relaxed and casual environment. The famous ceramics Hans Hedberg has his own table with a placard. It was a mere coincident that we were offered this table because my partner's name is Hans. Visit the Church Before and stroll the historical streets.
