We had dinner, with my wife and our 7 yrs son in April 2015. Interior details are amazing, old furnitures, wooden stuff, paintings etc. were all fascinating. All food were also nice but I can't put them at the same level with the interior details. 10/10 for design - interior - ambiance 8/10... read more

This restaurant is entered through an unprepossessing hole in a wall which leads into a beautiful terrace with astounding views where we sat for our hors d'oeuvres - a basket of fresh vegetables and 15+ little plates including rice, couscous, celery in cream, cured meats etc. Fortunately our daughter had been here before and warned us that the hors d'oeuvres...

This is a love hate story because Colombe D'or had been a great place for me in the past but this time we went in a big family group and the experience was disturbing. Arrogant service most of the time and when we ordered our lunch the waiter made a scene because some of us were not having starters. Apparently... More

We have been there many times and I still love the décor. Unfortunately the food seems to be the last thing on their mind and the service non-existent aside from a few exceptions. The beef was well-cooked but served with gratin dauphinois that was simply dumped on the plate and too salty. The hors d'oeuvres which are usually one of... More

Went there to have lunch on my husband's birthday. Very disappointing. We were seated outside under some trees and it was quite chilly. we asked to get a table under an umbrella or in the sun, but were told they were reserved for hotel guests. We asked for blankets, but they did not have any. The staff was extremely stressed... More

I can't believe I was eating facing a Picasso. We had a wonderful table outside with an incredible view of the mountains. I was mesmerized with the art the whole lunch and the weather was perfect. The food was delicious but the view and ambience was out of this world.

What a Lunch! During a Med Cruise we asked the restaurant for a lunch table of 7 by email and received within minutes not only a confirmation but also a call and have been treated like VIP's. Perfect start! During the lunch we have been surrounded by an extremly sympathic crowd in the spring garden full of flowers and a... More

Had been recommended La Colombe D'Or by several people. We were seated under a Picasso and near the lit open fire, which bearing in mind it was 25 degrees outside was a little odd, but added to the ambience. I ordered the mixed starter and when it arrived I thought there had been a mistake as it consisted of 16... More

We had been wanting to come to La Colombe d'Or for years, and finally had a spare day to do it. The concierge at The Carlton made the reservation and we took a train to Cagnes sur Mer, before taking a taxi to the restaurant. My wife is an artist and was seriously looking forward to seeing the art. As... More

I thought the food was fine but it did not wow me. It felt like the chef and restaurant are resting on their laurels. The service was somewhat haughty but not as bad as indicated in some reviews elsewhere in Tripadvisors. Nevertheless, I would recommend the restaurant because of the fabulous art collection. We ate underneath a Picasso and stared... More
