Lovely place

Cosy evening meal for two. Both main meal choices and sweets were very enjoyable. Service was first class. Chose to sit outside which was next to the road but it didn't seem to matter.

Being in Valbonne a lot of time, that restaurant is a good solution if you want to eat a menu without spending too much. There are different menu,starting from 13 to 19 end 24. I went with the 19 menu and was quite good. Table water and no other expense helps to keep the price low. Fast service and nice... More

Simple. Delicious. Comfortable. This would be my 3 words review for the restaurant. Great ambiance and charm of an old house, where you feel comfortable and at home. The service was outstanding from the get go, so while we had some ideas regarding what we wanted to eat, we mostly went with the recommendations. We had delicious thin crust pizza... More

The previous reviewers got this right. The restaurant does not look the most fancy in Valbonne but it is one of the most genuine. The service was fantastic. Mother and daughter both equally friendly and helpful with none of the patronising or condescending attitude of some other places around. This was entirely genuine. There were a choice of menus with... More

Don't be put off by first impressions of the external or internal decor - it is quite basic compared with some of the more snazzy restaurants within Valbonne itself and in the surrounds. We felt we were in a mountain chalet not a pizza restaurant in a medieval village setting. But most importantly we experienced fantastic service, delicious pizzas and... More

This family-run pizzeria is a bit further away from the busy village square, but the prices are much more reasonable and the atmosphere really friendly. There are only three or four outside tables, so if you want to eat outside, book ahead. The pizzas are consistently good, their salads are great and the service is impeccable. I don't know how...

this family run restaurant has some great pizza ideas and its home made, thin base and top fillings. Cosy surroundings, but probably best outside the summer season as mainly indoor seating.

We had been recommended this place by some local French friends who love it. We struggled to get enthusiastic as the food was only OK as far as we were concerned, not really particularly special and the décor etc was a bit too traditional/tired for our liking. Service was pleasant and the cost reasonable. The choice on the menu was... More
