Visited this restaurant on Saturday evening with friends who now live within walking distance of Valbonne. Small but absolutely delightful restaurant, Valerie is extremely friendly, amusing, helpful and gives every attention to detail, service was excellent and the complimentary Champagne and amuse bouche an unexpected 'extra' for us. Fabulous food served on very hot plates. Can definitely recommend this as... More

We met up with some friends for lunch who all had had a late night and we not quite ready for lunch so we decided to try the sunday brunch at the Cadran Solaire. What a brilliant idea that was, there is a nicely set up "buffet" the open fire... More

We were lucky, arrived early & managed to get a table - even on a Monday night. The reason being fabulous Provencale food & service, great atmosphere, excellent wines & reasonable prices. A must if you are visiting or staying in or near Valbonne. We will certainly return as we were lucky enough to discover this gem of a restaurant... More

Our experienced mirrored that of the previous reviewer. Attentive service from the lady serving the tables, lovely complimentary drinks and amuse bouches and then there is the well presented food itself. All at very reasonable prices and lovely surrounds. Highly recommended.

After 2 weeks in Valbonne, we ate here on the last night of our holidays. If only we'd come here sooner. Sitting outside, we all had the best meal of the holiday, and were served by the lady we believed to be the owner. She was so helpful and friendly, it really did make for an outstanding dining experience. Complimentary... More

Try this for lunch or dinner and you won't be disappointed. Delicious steak and pasta with seafood had by our group. The hostess was friendly and efficient. We look forward to our next visit.

I thought we had reached foodie heaven when we ate at Le Bistrot du Sommelier in Valbonne (for which I have written a seperate review), but nothing prepared us for this!! Absolutely amazing restaurant with very reasonable prices and an affordable wine list. We sat outside and the atmosphere was really lovely. The menu is full of goodies and we... More

Impressed by this small restaurant in a quiet street in Valbonne. We came 14 people without a reservation, and they managed without any problems. Appreciated the free welcome drink. The food was great, especially the Risotto is highly recommended. Thank you for a great meal.

We were shocked at first to find that Guy (former owner) has now retired, but thought we'd give it a go as we'd had many an enjoyable evening here previously. We were made very welcome with a complimentary aperitif and hors d'oevres, and then enjoyed the 3 course menu at 30 euros. It was very good food and service. Only... More
