We've eaten in most of the restaurants in Valbonne but this is our favourite. A genuine warm welcome with a glass of bubbly and simple food that is well cooked and presented and all at a very reasonable price

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
