The Art of Food

A close friend recommended us to visit. He told us of the fine art on the walls of the restaurant. We arrived at St Paul de Vence earlyish about 10.00 and before walking round the village - we wandered in and were pleasantly surprised to be able to get a table for lunch at 1.00, especially as it... read more

Stunning art works, first class food and service, some very rich people, often famous. Worth every cent.

First you need to go there for the view. This is a highly romantic setting in gorgeous Saint-Paul de Vence. Adorned trees overlooking a beautiful swimming pool, colored tiles (which I never saw elsewhere) on this old

We were in the terrace on a sunny Sunday for lunch. It was fully packed and tables were very close to each other. I can not say that there was any problem. However the whole experience was a disappointment considerimg what we were expecting of the name and reputation. We tried to get dressed nicely (smart casual) and many were... More

This is an elegant, discreet restaurant in the most wonderful setting. The cuisine was both original and outstanding and the service among the best we have ever experienced. Understandably, one has to book well in advance to have a chance of a table, though cancellations can be had in the evening. It is extraordinarily good value.

I guess they are sitting on their name recognition but it was a waste of money. Overcooked fish, lack of table service up to par with the French tradition. Dining surrounded by artworks has its' charm but not worth the price.

The key benefit from this place is its location, close to the walls of St. Paul. This also probably ensures they are always full, regardless of the quality and service they offer. The food is rather bland, and the service 'transactional'. In this beautiful part of the world with so much to offer, you can find better places to eat.

We were able to get a table at the last minute! Unheard of for the restaurant! We sat in the gorgeous patio and had a wonderful meal. We started with the asparagus salad and I had the rabbit and my husband the filet. Great wine list, amazing art, impeccable service with a little glass of Marc at the end of... More

No trip to Provence would be complete without having a meal at La Colombe d'Or to experience excellent food in a delightful garden terrace. The menu was fantastic with a wonderful selection to satisfy the palate !
