Fantastic food and great service

Lovely food and great service. We had the ravioli and steak tartare, both of which were fantastic. Great views overlooking the surrounding countryside.

Narrow little charmer off the street beside the western rampart, with a friendly and efficient madame who easily persuaded us to have a venison daube - about as much as we could manage of this well cooked and tasty winter warmer (most of the town was 'fermeture annuelle'), washed down with a reasonable carafe of their red. Given the high... More

A lovely little place for drinks and a snack. Great views and friendly service. Lots of nice places in St Paul but this is a place not to be missed.

We went for a quick lunch... but wowowo ! All three in our group were completely blown away by the delicate full flavour and divine tastes achieved by the chef ! This is my first review on trip advisor, but the food's flavour, tenderness and "melt-in-the-mouth" manner left us truely speechless ... Go !

We had the best lunch of our vacation at Malabar! We scouted out all the restaurant choices and were so happy to have decided on Malabar. It is located on the ramparts, with a beautiful view of the valley. It is a charming cafe, we were fortunate to be seated outside. I had the salad with goat cheese baguettes, which... More

We were a group of friends who ate here- the entrées were fine. Three of us had the burger- honestly, had better one (the bread was not really good and the fries were quite dry). Two friends hat the "Canard", which looked fine. Unfortunately, the two next days, our both friends who ate the duck were sick (diarrhea and nausea)!!!!!!!!Even... More

We went for lunch here and we had the chance to get the table from outside. The food was very good, the place is great and the view was all it took to make our 1h30 stay pleasant. If you have the chance to pass by, stop at least for a drink.

This is a lovely small local restaurant with a very little outdoor seating, a lovely view. The menu is small but excellent, changes daily. Classic cuisine. Very relaxed.

We spent a lovely morning in St Paul de Vance and found this lovely little restaurant on the ramparts quite by chance. With laid back jazz music in the background, the wonderful view from the doorway, together with fantastic food and wine, we couldn't have asked for more. Would highly recommend!
