The setting was intimate and nice. Although not many tables, the atmosphere was very romantic. The service was excellent, very welcoming and helpful. The food was heavenly and prices not so high.

However this restaurant exceeded expectations on every level. the host was charming and explained the menu in great detail to us ( In english).The philosophy of the restaurant is a short menu cooked to perfection at...

A little late in writing this review - a friend mentioned the restaurant and I said I had been there and would love to go back. An amazing frog and mushroom tart with the most beautiful pastry I have ever eaten in my entire life. Amazing wine, fantastic location and the owner a delight. A very long conversation about the...

Loved this place. You have to walk up and deep into the small town to get there, but that only works up your appetite. The setting, inside the rock walls of a chateau/castle, is very unique made all the more intimate in that there aren't many tables (need to book ahead in the summer months). The service was outstanding -... More

We returned to this restaurant this year having enjoyed a superb meal there in August 2014. We were not disappointed. Great atmosphere in the natural rock restaurant, with fantastic food, very attentive service and excellent value for money. To be highly recommended.

We ate here one evening on our stay in the town and it was fantastic. Some of our party of four were a little apprehensive of the menu which we looked at online ahead of our visit, fearing it may be a little heavy but those doubts were quickly put to bed. This was superb cooking, with the lightness of... More

Discovering the quaint village of Roquebrune was a subtle pleasure that culminated in a wonderful dinner in this restaurant. A tiny "hole in the wall", a dimly lit cave redolent of centuries of history and mistery, taking the cue from its name, Grand Inquisitor, whose grim mock portrait hangs at the entrance, may apparently be designed to inspire terror.

Restaurant came highly recommended both on-line and from personal recommendations. It didn't disappoint and was one of the highlight meals, among many other very good meals, on our entire Europe trip. Walking thru the old medieval village of Roquebrunne sets the perfect tone for this restaurant. The entrance is almost hidden among the many passageways. We were warmly greeted and... More
