Wonderful food and great service

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.

We always seem to come back to this most charming of restaurants every time we are in Valbonne. I wrote a rave review last time and can only say that charm and standards have been maintained. This is off the main square and one would expect higher prices than eating on the square - but no. It is very reasonable... More

We ate here yesterday, my partner very much enjoyed her fish dish which was nicely presented.I made the mistake of choosing one of the days "specials" I think the beef must have come from a part the animal was least proud of.I did manage to extricate a few pieces of chewable meat but not much.

Good evening Madam, Sir, I am sorry that you have been disapointed by the beef you have eaten at my restaurant because we only propose (à la carte) a fillet of beef charolais top quality, which is served with a gratin dauphinois (or fries if asked), and don't serve the salad on the same plate (we always serve the salad...

We came for dinner a few days ago and were very favourably impressed by the friendly quick service, and enjoyed a thoroughly good meal. We sat outside in a very quaint medieval street and really appreciated the atmosphere. We shall go back there for a meal next time we pop down to the South of France.

We had a great meal here in the evening, choosing from the fixed price menu which was very good value and of excellent quality. Wine was also good but a bit pricey (there doesn't seem to be a house wine). We dined outside; a nice, quiet and romantic location.
