Great setting, poor food

What I remember as the bar in the village 'place' serving great pizzas is now a full blown restaurant taking up most of the viallge square. Sad to say that the food is very average, my steak was as tough as old boots. Given the huge number of meals now served their business plan has to be right but... read more

Best place on the Riviera for a pizza. But, everything on the menu is superb. Great staff, most speak English, always very polite. Cafe catches the sun, and is a lovely place to sit outside.

Ate here with a party and the food was very good even though the restaurant was very busy. Would definitely recommend eating here and will be going again.

......and pretty good nosh a well. As a place that is always in the sun and the main hub of valbonne, it is by definition a place to be on the Riviera as Valbonne is one of the most popular and up-n-coming location along the coast!

Having been before and had a great meal, it is with regret that as a family we returned for lunch at around 3pm, to be told by the very rude young waitress that we could only eat salad and or pizza. She refused to bring water only giving our wine! The third time we asked she promptly turned heel and... More

I've often stopped and had a drink outside here during the summer and today was the first time I have had lunch. Very tasty, wholesome food with a nice local French touch (loved the crème brulé with truffle on the side), a very palatable wine, all reasonably priced. It looked good and was good, nothing overly fancy. We ate inside,... More

I must say, this restaurant, always having been a nice place to eat, has improved considerably both in service and food quality over the past couple of years. Nice and friendly. Idyllic setting.

Lots of choice, reasonable prices. The best thing is sitting in the square of Valbonne, great atmosphere.

Being located in the town square you would expect the normal tourist trap but this is NOT the case. This was a great find, friendly staff, nice location and excellent food. A must do and was well worth the trip.

Yes - 2 November and the sun was shining and the Square at Valbonne was heaving with people - and it seemed that they all wanted to eat at the Café des Arcades. We had a delightful - but not especially cheap - !lunch. The service was excellent and efficient but totally impersonal. Given the size of the place it... More
