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!

This place was referred by a store nearby and I have to say. I was not expecting much but seating with that view, sipping a local wine and eating a extremely fresh salad with foie gras was one of the highlights of our trip. Unforgettable lunch, great services and fresh and delicious food. You can't go wrong here. Superb!!!

Beautifully situated on the ramparts of this lovely town the Malabar Restaurant is quaint, lovingly run and serves excellent food which has been prepared with care to order. Not far from here is the rather jarringly named and decorated La Sierra, which after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, was our first choice. What happy chance that it was closed! Malabar... More

This lovely little restaurant is hidden away on the west rampart of St. Paul. We first went to the Malabar four years ago and we have made it a point to return every year since when we are visiting the south of France. It is run by a couple. The wife is the hostess, the husband the chef. My wife... More
