Honest little restaurant

The locals use this which is always a good sign. The food choice was limited to the plat de jour but the choice was about 5 dishes. Service was good as was the food and v reasonably priced. I note that all the lower scores for this restaurant are from French people. Perhaps if this is the sort... read more

We too stumbled upon this excellent restaurant and agree with the sentiments of virtually all the preceding comments. Great local Provencal food, welcoming atmosphere and patron and a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The venison casserole was the star followed by just about everything else. We will return

Walked the lanes and noticed locals frequenting this Restaurant. Had a great three course lunch with wine for around Euro25 per person. Home style food. Pleased we stopped for lunch!

This place in old Grasse was filled with locals. I think we were the only English speaking tourists but we had fast service and delicious food with reasonable prices. We both had the aioli, a thick homemade mayonnaise just packed with hand crushed garlic - wow. It was served with fish, a boiled potato, a boiled carrot, steamed cauliflower and... More

We stumbled across this restaurant, and we are so happy about that. They change menu everyday, and today my wife had cod (10,50 euro) and I had the famous aiôli (12,50 euro) which took me back to my grandmas cooking. Wow, Excellent! Service was perfect and our rosé (2,50 euro) tasted really good! Just visit and enjoy!!

I ate at this restaurant most often while in Grasse, and the food was always good and served with a smile. Ingredients were very fresh and the cuisine is very Provencal. The seafood was always good, but the blood sausage was amazing.

A good place to find, in one of the narrow streets of the old town. The male waitors are attentive and knowledgeable. The food is really good. You get to try the local dishes, just like homemade. The crowd consists of locals and tourists, everybody loves the food, the people and the place!

The food was really really good!!! The appetizer (entrée) totally blown us away! We had Terrine de campagne and Quiche Su saumon fumé! And for plat we had saumon (salmon) and poivronade (chicken). For dessert, we chose tiramisu and apple tart. The tiramisu is simply a delight; the apple tart was okay. This place feels very local, food is excellent... More

This is a gem. Lovely little restaurant off the beaten track, non-touristy, at lunch the place was full of locals (and us). The food is superb, the service excellent, glass of wine for a 3.5 Euros, two courses for 11.5 Euros, impossible to get better value for money than this. But it was not about the cost, the restaurant is... More
