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

Really delightful small restaurant off the town square. The welcoming glass of Champagne was a great start for a good meal. Food was very good, with the caveat that my veal was extremely tough; not sure whether a result of meat quality or overcooking. Other food items were quite good, including a fine Provencal fish soup that I highly recommend.

This is a truly lovely little restaurant. The rabbit in mustard sauce was amazing and the generous desserts delicious. Very friendly and accommodating owner, delightful.

We have eaten here many times over the last year and recommended to family and friends. The food and attentive service never disappoints! The owner is always so attentive to everything, so friendly with adults and children and happy to explain those odd French words that may flummox us every now and again! The price is very reasonable for Valbonne... More

Wonderful wonderful hostess who couldn't be nicer and accommodated every request (for example more oven heated hand-made bread to finish our foie gras) with a charm and openness rarely seen. Every course was absolutely amazing - mustard rabbit with tagliatelle, and mushroom risotto for mains, and a classic creme brûlée and tarte tatin for pudding. Can't give 6 or more... More

Relaxing atmosphere, perfect attentive service from greeting with complimentary Champagne to our farewell. The courses each made for our best meal of the week in this area of France. Highest recommendation.

Thanks to previews reviews we sought out this delightful little street restaurant in Vallbone ignoring the heaving main square. The food we ate was classic French cuisine, Foie Gras, Sole, steak, fromage and a delightful Sabayan of Fruits Rouge. All superb. Madam was run off her feet with all the tables outside full but she never stopped smiling and was... More

Love this place. Away from the noise of the main square in Valbonne so it is quiet and a better atmosphere. The food was excellent and the it was really good value - 2 three course meals and a good local bottle of wine for €82.
