A warm welcome awaited us in this most attractive restaurant, and the food was delicious. I could have eaten all the Parmesan twists but that would have left no room for the delicious little bisque which arrived before our orders. My carpaccio of artichokes was crisp and delicate, and perfect before my Scampi in Kadaifi. Most unusual but a great... More

For years we'd heard of les santons as on the finer dining options in the little town of Grimaud, FR, but only just tried it for the first time. We were welcomed to start our evening in a small salon off the dining room where we could have an aperitif - coup champagne - and browse the menu. The was... More

Visited Les Santons on Sunday , restaurant completely full and had a fantastic lunch. We normally come in the Summer so it was lovely to experience the real fire in the lounge. The roast vegetable tart was absolutely outstanding and my husband is still talking about the lemon risotto main course. The staff led by Stephanie are well trained and... More

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
