I have yet another superb dinner evening at Le Cadran Solaire together with the charming welcome from Valerie. The fillet of beef was delicious and I certainly recommend the €36 menu of Entree, Plat, Fromage and Dessert. In my view having eaten there many times over the last eighteen years it is the best restaurant all round in Valbonne.

Atmospheric small restaurant in the back streets of Valbonne with an excellent €28 menu catering for all tastes. Really good food well prepared. Amazed that one good waitress (that we presume to be the owner) can serve 32 covers without any of us having to wait too long and do this whilst always smiling. We will certainly return.

We have enjoyed visiting this delightful small restaurant over the past three years, always excellent. Valerie, front of house is delightful, although we do our best to practice our school French, it is reassuring to know she speaks very good English when we are stuck! Fixed price menu is a very reasonable 26Euro with an excellent selection of dishes in... More

We ate here last night and had a wonderful experience! The food was simply superb especially considering there was only one chef and one front of house lovely lady on duty ! As it was a little chilly we chose to eat indoors in a lovely romantic setting- small and intimate yet plenty of space for us. The room was... More

My wife had been stressed out lately, so I tried to be a good hubby and took her out for dinner. I checked a few places around the area, which has a very high restaurant/mq2 ratio. Since the reviews on Le Cadran Solaire were mostly positive, and Valbonne is a lovely town that we already knew, we picked it out.... More

Valbonne square can be very noisy, this is a better location if you want to have a quieter evening. The owner is very welcoming. Long, leisurely service....not rushed at all. Lovely home style recipes, great value fixed price menu.

This is our second time in this restaurant. The first one, 5 years ago, we had lunch and it was quite nice to sit under the beautiful tree. This time it was for dinner. A lovely experience.

Hands down the best restaurant I have been to in the South of France . Delicious food (you have to try the tarte fine aux tomates for starter and the sabayon for desert). Lovely service with very kind hostess . Terasse is so calm, quiet and charming, far from the hassle of the main square . I recommend this restaurant... More
