Beautiful village square

The square in Valbonne is very busy with restaurants and cafes, and this restaurant is in the centre, perfect to sit with a café and watch the people going by. Café au LAit 2.90, 25cl Kronenbourg 3.10

I have been enjoying a morning expresso at the Cafe des Arcades for many years. The cafe is situated right on the square in Valbonne village and a perfect spot for people gazing. I recently had dinner there and it was terrible; an 'angus steak' literally served in two minutes topped with burnt onions, with a few lettuce leaves as... More

The restaurant is located at city center next to several other restaurants at a market square. The biggest problem before arrival is that you need to find a parking space for your car if you need to arrive with your car. The space is very limited. In general you should reserve a table in your favourite restaurant. The whole town... More

This place may deserve an accolade for the worst service in an area where service is generally abysmal. It now runs the nearby Cafe Latin a very close second for sheer rudeness and lousy service. Hands up! I admit I shouldn't have gone there, after my last experience. I broke one of my life rules, I do not normally allow... More

Nothing fancy here. The view of the square is as important to their success as the food. That's not to damn it with faint praise, just more to alert you to idea that you shouldn't use it expecting more than good sidewalk food.

We visited this place on our first night in Valbonne. Obviously place to go as the busiest on the square so seemed a good idea. The waiters were definitely a little offhand with us - I am sure our school girl English didn't help. When we were seated service remained slow and it did seem like they thought they were... More

The chef's creations are extraordinary! We liked the meals and it was really specially delicious. The terass is too crowded and not soo cocomfortable.

I only ate a salad and a café gourmand here, but everything was served with a smile and very fresh. Lovely buzzy atmosphere on the main square.

I was there last week with friends and when the sun is shining it's a great place to be. The menu is good and the waiters are always busy but good at what they do. I had the "Plat du Jour" which was very good. My friends had a salad and a pizza and they were very happy with both.... More
