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!

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
