Unique setting with outstanding food and service

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... read 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

Super cute restaurant in the heart of Roquebrune village. Very small made of stone and lovely wooden tables and the kitchen is on the other side of the street.... The menu has a choice of 4 entrees and 4 mains (and desserts of course!) and they change it a couple of times a year. The owner is lovely and it... More

It is amazing how just two people can produce such great food and service. Super atmosphere and a real taste of the area. The loo in the cave was great too!!

The perfect number of selections so that attention is paid to each item. Wonderful meats and poultry. The feeling while dining is of being in an intimate Medieval dining room, romantically lit and cozy. There is nothing contrived about this, and one owner/waiter takes care of everyone beautifully.

Charming small restaurant with attentive and considerate husband and wife team. Generally very good food, though can be a little pricey. Recommend to anyone who wants an atypical and romantic experience.
