The Best Restaurant in Saint-Raphael

Having spent a fair amount of time in Saint-Raphael over the past few years, I have found most restaurants to be very similar, with nothing outstanding. This Restaurant changed that, all our courses were excellent in every way, quality, flavour, quantity and price. The wine list had a good range of... read more

Greeted with friendly service and nice decor. Good selection of wines. The menu was small but the quality was fantastic. Had amazing truffle filled pasta (special for the day) and a chocolate lava cake to finish. Enjoyed thoroughly.

This is a real good family run restaurant. Our reservation was for Fri evening but, by mistake, was in their diary for the Sat. Although the restaurant was fully booked, the staff made up a two seat table for the three of us and, when a table became available, put the two together with the minimum of fuss. The food,... More

This was the worst meals we've had in Southern France. My husband had Spaghetti Bolognese which had a most unusual, bad taste which we could not identify so the dish was not eaten. I had fillet of beef which was 'ok' but the rest of the plate was occupied with very cheesy pasta spirals - I must have looked very... More

We had dinner at this quaint little restaurant with dear friends who live in St. Aygulf. It couldn't have been more wonderful! We arrived for our reservation at 8:00 and stayed until after 10:30, enjoying every bite and sip of our menu selections. Our waiter who has been there for five years made sure our experience was super from start... More

The restaurant is small & charming. The service is sincere & helpful. The food was amazing - really fresh pasta, full of flavour and was beautifully presented. Easily one of the best, if not best, meals I've eaten in France.

The food is amazing, the restaurant is really cute and the service is just right. This is the best food we had on our holiday. It even beat the michelin star restaurant we ate it - by a long shot. We had a lovely table to the back of the restaurant and were able to see chef through the window... More
