Tucked down a narrow side alley off the main square in Grasse this restaurant is definitely worth seeking out. We just had lunch there & were 1 of only 2 tables but I think that is probably unusual. The menu was limited to a choice of just 3 dishes per course but still offered great variety & every dish we... More

Located in a narrow street ten steps away from a square which featured a couple of restaurants with lots of tourists inside, was Lou Candeloun. We have found this place, owned by a chef and his wife, using a French guide, 'Le Routard'. A small, cosy and beautifully decorated room had no more than 9 tables. However, everything we have...

While visiting Grasse with friends, we decided to hop into a restaurant nearby a little peaceful square in the old part of town. As it was the weekend, the lunch menu at €32 was available. We opted for the panfried gooseliver with gravy, excellent quality of gooseliver and cooked to perfection, a very refreshing lobster terrine, for main course, the... More

Small restaurant located in the old centre of Grasse. The restaurant is simply decorated, but pretty. Food is certainly the most imaginative in Grasse. Dishes we ate last time included a fish carpacio with avocardo and St Jaques clams with sweet potato. Friendly service, albeit not of the highest standard. Now firmly located on my list of favoured Grasse restaurants

This restaurant is tucked away in a side street at the end of Grasses main square. Which means that fewer people go there to eat and that is really their loss because the food at Lou Candeloun is really excellent. They use only fresh local products and cook them to perfection. I visited for lunch and had the daily formule... More

We arrived at Grasse after dark and found restaurant just by accident even though we had 2 GPS devices between us. There was a crib in a reception area and our first reaction was that we entered somebody’s house and we almost left. After we were led to the dining area we were surprised to find it very nice and...

Went there after reading the reviews in trip advisor. Quaint little restaurant. The reception area looked like a nursery, high chair baby bed, play things etc. we had a table outside, food was good and fresh but portions extremely small. We were not asked if we wanted a drink before dinner, were not allowed to have a peek in the... More

Tucked down the most unassuming alleyway,this is the gourmet choice in Grasse.Inventive menus change regularly to reflect market offering. Whatever the season,you are in for a regional treat with good wines to match. Try the hazelnut olive with poached quail eggs,snails with diced vegetables and garlic cream. It deserves its reputation.
