Café des Arcades has plenty outdoor seating on the picturesque and aptly named Place des Arcades, in the old part of Valbonne. Being one of several restaurant on this plaza, we opted for the one serving pizza. Because, being a group of 6 children and 6 adults, pizza is important. The service was very nice, and they managed to arrange... More

This is our go-to restaurant in Valbonne. We must have had lunch here 100 times and the food is always great. The pizzas are delicious, the plat du jour copious and imaginative and their café gourmands are the best, especialy their mango panacotta. Their terrasse is always thronging with people and even on rainy days the inside restaurant has a... More

So, we have been visiting the Cafe in the Square for the last 20 years. Once, we would not have recommended it but now, we would. Service can be a little brusque but the food is well priced, there is good variety (the daily specials are always worth experimenting with!) and it is always consistent. Great place to just sit...

Having been a regular over many years something has changed in 2014. At my recent visit four of us had pizzas which used to be delicious but all of our had hardly any topping so dry, boring and more expensive than before. Three others in our group had different beef dishes all of which were cold. We were terribly disappointed... More

We were taken there by friends who spend every summer in the region. The restaurant has great food, is well priced and the location/ambience is worth 5 stars of anybodies money! Loved it!

As locals we have often gone to Valbonne square for an apero in the cafe des arcades and stayed til closing. The food is great value for money, great pizzas, great fish and great fun. Warm balmy evenings can't be beaten in valbonne square.

A Valbonne institution on the main square just like on the picture postcards. Decent honest food and usually quick service. On the sunny side of the square so beware in summer and often the busiest location in town.
