Many of the restaurants seemed a bit over priced. We looked at the menu for Malabar and we werent disappointed. We had the... read more

Most restaurants were closed today in saint paul and my friend and I were looking for a nice place to eat. Quite by chance we passed by this little restaurant along the village walls and we walked in. A good selection of food and we choose grilled duck breast which was very juicy and served with french fries and green... More

It is a small family simple restaurant with very good food, very friendly owners service and very reasonable prices. If you sit near the entrance you will have wonderful views.

When the owner is in the kitchen and his wife serving this is the best recipe for a great place . Small restaurant overlooking a nice mountain view . Food greatly cooked . Prices reasonable . When walking through St. Paul de Vance , go there for lunch .

This lovely, and perfectly located restaurant in Saint Paul de Vence is run by a husband and wife team who came to France 20 years ago. The two share their love of food, service and hospitality with all who visit. There were 6 of us ladies who were travelling around southern France. We were made to feel welcome immediately and...

This is a sweet little restaurant at the edge of St Paul De Vence. We hadn’t booked but were given a table on one of the raised levels, so all started well. However, the service was the worst I have had in France. Our waitress almost seemed angry at us, I thought initially she was frustrated with our poor French... More

We booked one of the 2 tiny tables outside (each only seats two) at sunset. The view is gorgeous and the food competes well with it. Penne with clams was perfectly done, the mini ravioli with pesto excellent, and the highlight was the chevre frais salad: practically a log of chevre sliced on top of toasted bread and sitting on...

It is a small, nice place. The menu is not very large, but provides with enough options to chose from for adults as well as has off-menu options for kids. Prices are fair, and one coming to visit the town from any of the Cote D'Azure towns will highly appreciate them! The place has a great panorama, and a nice... More

This restaurant is located near the entrance of the village, along the high wall that surrounds the city. The view is really great if you succeed booking one of the two tables (for two) installed outside the restaurant If not the inside of the restaurant is air-conditioned and nicely decorated It's not a gastronomic restaurant but you will eat very...
