Good regional kitchen, nice surrounding and a great location!

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... read 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...

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...

We picked Malabar from the reviews on TripAdvisor, and so happy we did. It was quiet (and early!) the night we went, and the service and food were really good. Loved that the menu changes daily....I assume because the chef uses whatever ingredients are fresh that day. We had a wonderful starter plate, followed by delicious ravioli. Desert...yum...creme brûlée and... More

This restaurant tucked away in the heart of the village in St. Paul de Vence, is bustling with customers due to freshly cooked, hot food after a little walk up the hill.The seating outside has beautiful views but we preferred to sit indoors because it was a hot day and there was air conditioning inside.The decor was cool with bric...

This small restaurant overlooking the Cote d'Azur offers those diners Lucky enough to gain an outside table an absolutely stunning view while relaxing over a meal. We were there for lunch- the food was terrific and the lady who served us took pride in her role and the delivery of our meal.

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.
