Stumbled upon a gem

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our first evening in Provence and what a great find. There is nothing to fault and only reading Tripadvisor post our meal which we don't often do we certainly chose a great restaurant that lived up to everyone's comments.

We have visited here twice this week, both times have not failed to disappoint. The lady who runs the front of house is always welcoming and greats you with a glass of champagne and some olives. There is a choice between 4 starters, main courses and desserts for the Plat du Jour or from a main menu. The food is... More

This little restaurant is a charmer. It consist of 30 covers in a lovely small room with tasteful decoration. Tables are close but not too close! Valerie runs the front of house. When you arrive she gives you a glass of bubbly and nibbles. The menu at 36€ has a wide range of dishes.The portions are very generous. Good home... More

Have been here several times and the food is exceptionally good every time - always pick the set menu - plat du jour! It is the best value and gives you the chance to try new food. The madam who runs this place is incredibly sweet and helpful, they deliver a few little touches that just make the evening more... More

Me and my wife just love this place. Le Cadran Solaire is for us a unique place. The friendliness, the food, the atmosphere - just make it a very nice place to visit. Our most recent dinner was the 29th of December - again the restaurant was full, and we ended up at the nice table close to the fireplace.... More

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!
