I dined here last night and am absolutely gutted it was the last night of our holiday. From the moment we sat down until we left everything was perfect. The restaurant is such a pretty spot away from the main busy square. The amazing lady,who I presume is the owner, seemed to do everything by herself with such ease and... More

I spend a lot of time in Cote d'Azur and had begun to despair at the template of Moules Marnierre/pizza/chicken dishes that are offered in each and every restaurant. Then I found this gem!!! What a chef! Wonderful selection of fresh ingredients, imaginative selection of foods and brilliantly cooked. The setting is lovely. We sat outside in a lovely, quiet... More

We spent a pleasant August evening in Valbonne when the coast is overcrowded, and the promise of relax was kept, with a very nice service and an excellent fresh food. The third time in a row since end 2013 that I'm not disappointed here

We visited this restaurant after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. Valerie was indeed very friendly as others have said and gave us a glass of bubbly (on the house) on arrival - most welcome. After we were seated, a large group of British people arrived (they had booked a table, so must have read the... More

It's very difficult to add more detail about Le Cadran Solaire, as most reviewers were as ecstatic as we were with the food, ambiance and value for money. All the plus points have been well documented already and for us there were no negatives. We were in Valbonne for 4 nights and ate here twice. On the first night we... More

While the main square in Valbonne in the evening is buzzy and full of life with a couple of good restaurants it can also be a little bit like eating in a school playground with several distractions for children as they roar round the place. This is in a side street. Valerie has recently taken over and everything works -... More

This restaurant is certainly worth a visit. It is in a quiet side street a short walk from the main square. The food and service were very good indeed. Thank you.

You will not be disappointed. Madame Valerie was lovely and welcoming, serving complimentary champagne and olives when we sat down. Soups au poissons light and delicious, rabbit in mustard sauce bright and flavorful. Excellent value with the menu at 28 Euros. Need a rez in summer.

We came here on a busy market Friday and found this little oasis. Mme Valerie is charming, friendly & so hard working. The food was so great we came again the following day. Don't miss this little gem, sit outside, it's shady with a cool gentle breeze - Jeff & Deborah
