Lunch at Les Arcades

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.

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.

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.

We went there the four of us for dinner , the atmosphere was very good, the service familial yet professional. The food was very good, though the pasta with my osso buco was over cooked, however all the rest was very good. the pesto soup was excellent. The concept is simple and you feel welcomed. Make sure you visit the... More

Biot is a village famous for its glassmaking. We went to this restaurant when a glass studio owner recommended it to us. The place had a very family run feel to it, with the owner's family members walking and sitting around the restaurant (their lovely dog also came by to say hello!). The decor included cardboard cutout figures made by... More

Have ate in many restaurants in Biot. Usually never make it up to the top where this place is located. Did so this year and very pleased we did. Excellent traditional menu. Generally all main courses are served on a side plate so you serve yourself. Nice touch. Stuffed flowers etc as starters. Mains included a delicious rabbit stew. Excellent... More
