Just loved this place. From the great service to the lounge room where we had a Kir Royale to the amazing menu. We bought their wine glasses as I loved them. It is expensive but worth it.

My husband and I found this restaurant accidentally while visiting Grimaud and looking for Santons to add to my daughter's collection. Our first visit was for lunch which we thoroughly enjoyed in a beautiful, peaceful room with dark woods, white tablecloths, pewter flatware and exquisite food. All around the dining room and the "living room" were beautiful one- of- a-... More

We ate on the small terrace. No views but a pleasant ambiance with an attractive fountain. The interior was very pleasant and we'd like to return in winter to experience the cosy atmosphere. The service was very attentive and the food was all of a very high standard. Freshly-cooked and delicious. It was pricey and difficult to find any bottles... More

This is my first review of Les Santons since I initially visited this restaurant in 1997. I have a passion for stylish, cosy places as well as excellent food and fine wines - and have recommended Les Santons throughout the last 17 years to friends and business acquaintances. I have read a very surprising review in Trip Advisor that this... More

Belongs in a different era....Stuffy with starched table clothes , suited & awkward waiters, wines so overpriced as to be comical. The food was average at best. I read that it once had a Michelin star quite some years ago.... Not today.

Title says it all!! We went there for dinner and tried to go again. Absolutely superb steak - crisp on the outside and tender inside. Rum baba superb. Fish also good. Service excellent. Cheese tray looks really good but reluctantly we had to decline

Just a short note to acknowledge a very wonderful lunch on a nice day wandering about Grimaud. My friend has had several superb lunches and dinners here and she was quick to suggest it for lunch. They took a reservation on about 75 minutes ahead and it was easy to find with garage parking across the street, that was safe... More

Grimaud is an old, very charming village just a short drive from St. Tropez and Les Santons is one of the best little restaurants on thewhole peninsula! Great atmosphere, top service and exelent food! The prices are generally quite high, but if you go there for lunch you should try the set menu which will give you a superb meal... More

We made the long drive down from Hampshire to our family house close to Grimaud. We freshened up and headed straight out to one of our very favourite local restaurants. We are always warmly welcomed as are our two dogs. The restaurant interior is maintained to an immaculate standard of cleanliness - now mainly overseen by the charming and elegant... More
