Sainte Maxime has been our favourite destination for more then 10 years and we discovered this year L'Ormeau just two days before our scheduled leave.. Our first dinner was so good so we decided to try it again. Everything we had was exceptional: the maigret de canard (duck) was the best I have ever had in more than 30 years... More

We know Ste Maxime very well and have been here for many years of holidays. It keeps improving as a town and there is no shortage of places to eat. There are some very good, but most are fairly average In what they offer and many not worth the money. We had the €25 menu. The Goats cheese starter was... More

Just had a wonderful meal at L'Ormeau. My girlfriend had the goats cheese salad and the Bali style chicken and proclaimed it as the best meal she has had in the the French Riviera. I too very much enjoyed the Bream tatare and the duck main. Lovely service that would make you think... Why go to Saint Tropez anyway? Great... More

We ate pizzas and salad and the food was very good indeed. The best pizza I have eaten outside Italy. The salads were generous and prices reasonable. The waiter had a certain manner that could be interpreted as offhand but was certainly efficient. There was a guitarist/singer who added to a very pleasant atmosphere.

While our experience in Sainte Maxime was subpar, this was the only shining star. This restaurant had a mixture of strong ambiance, great service, and excellent food and food presentation. Also, they spoke very good english so it was easy to communicate. The owner of the restaurant was our waiter and was a great guy. We were in a rush... More

We found this restaurant while walking around in Ste-Maxime. It is a great little find and we enjoyed our meal very much. My husband had the shrimp and I had a fish dish. Both were very nice, but beware, as is the tradition in Cote D'Azur, they do not shy away from garlic. While it is at acceptable levels most... More

Food was great. We tried the duck, some salads and fried camembert. Waiter was friendly and made us feel like home. Decent house wine, comes with free tap water. Interior was a bit cramped with some design elements bordering on kitsch. But all in all, a fabulous dinner for 30€ per person (including wine), a fair deal for this part... More
