We came for lunch, based on these reviews. We expected the "English speaking hostess" but had to get by with our broken French. Not a problem, and the food was excellent. I found the vegetarian dish very, very rich (but this is France). The aioli cod was excellent. Very fine cuisine. Prices are more then the 10E noted on TripAd... More

I was in Mandelieu-la-Napoule to visit friends & they raved about this restaurant that they had just discovered. They made reservations for lunch one day & I'm still in "awe". We arrived & my friend was excited to show me the kitchen, small but efficient. We didn't order fast enough, so two of the specials were already sold out. I... More

We tried this tiny restaurant after stopping by, looking at the small hand-written chalked menu and made a lunch reservation. Everything was so flavorful and beautifully plated. Excellent choices for a tiny restaurant of 16 seats! The 2 tarts we tried for dessert were wonderful as well. We couldn't help but check out what other diners had and would have... More

We were invited by an old friend for lunch at this restaurant, and (having checked it out on TripAdvisor before we went) we were expecting something special. We were not at all disappointed. My wife had slivered cod in mashed potatoes, and I had a osso bucco made with turkey--I didn't know you could do that! Both were delicious, generous... More

Based on the many rave reviews on Trip Advisor for this cute little restaurant along a busy road in Mandelieu, we decided to give it a try. We always shop at the Geant Casino grocery store down the road. Even more surprising, we get our croissants and baguettes at the bakery just 2 doors down! After inquiring for a dinner... More

This little lunch spot (closed in the evening) is next to the Geant supermarket. But what a place! The menu is on a chalk board, little changes every few days (6-7 dishes) The food is very good, beautifull presented (chicken skewer with couscous in a glass!) and nice portions. The Tarte Tatin portion was huge... ;-) Even the café crème... More

We live close by so we have used this place very often and every time the owner-cook Jean Michel and his wonderful English speaking hostess Natalie have given us a great food/service experience..When we visited the restaurant the first time last year ( it was relatively new then) we were so surprised & impressed that I said to Jean Michel...

Don't miss this if you are on the Cote d'Azur. Lunches only, but creative, feast for the eyes as well as the palate, and very affordable. Friendly folks and congenial atmosphere. Meilleur choix sur la Cote d'Azur. Hier isst man wie Gott in Frankreich!
