This restaurant has no one that speaks English, but they brought us great food, and a good bottle of wine. We enjoyed this very local experience so much we came back a couple more times. This is the place if you want to dine with the locals.

Located in the medieval part of Valbonne, this is a pretty nice & coze restaurant serving up traditional French fare - also plenty of rather unusual stuff like intestinces and other "less noble" types of meat on the menu. Very friendly, down-to-earth service too!

This was a singular dining experience - the atmosphere was so pleasant and happy in a packed restaurant on a damp winter evening in early November. The hostess exuding happiness and commitment to her guests - and the food was of outstanding quality. All in all a great evening - one that sends you to bed with a smile on... More

Eating here is a creative and comforting experience. I've eaten here many times over 10 years of visits. The new owners are even better than the prior owners. The service is just right, the food is always done perfectly whatever you order. You must try the restaurant. It's a winner.

Just spent a delightful evening with our dear friend at this restaurant and even though there were no tables available in the courtyard, we were glad we accepted a table indoors. The food was divine as was the wine, a 2011 Bandol! From the entre, the main meal and to the dessert, every course was a culinary success. Bravo to... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of the villa where we were staying. It was a good call. The food was lovely and very reasonable for the quality. Service was typically French but very pleasant and we were given a "little extra" because we waited for one of our courses.

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
