One review, but eat here several times per year as a partial resident of the area. Food is always excellent, but bear in mind that the service can be a little slow as it gets very, very busy in high season. In fact I recommend you book during high season to avoid being one of the many people you see... More

Having just returned from Valbonne I need to share this gem with all you Tripadvisor members. We stayed in a holiday rental nearby and ate here twice. I have rarely seen staff who work so hard with such good humour. Being the height of the summer season it was busy on both occasions but we got a table straight away... More

Cafe des Arcades is consistently good. They have expanded their table area in the last year or so, and in the summer season here it's always busy. It's best to book, though they will seat you if they possibly can. Staff are efficient and friendly, and there is indoor seating too- though we love to sit outside and watch the... More

I have been coming to valbonne for the past 10 years and always try to get a meal in st this place. The square is still cosy and lively but the food has gone downhill. The pizza had me knocking back water all night. It was also irritating to see people sectioned off to designated "drinking tables" when the restaurant... More

The cafe seems to be run with no staff to serve the customers. If you're thirsty or hungry this is not the place to go. The waitress, if you're lucky enough to see her, is stuck up and entitled. Although it looks nice in the square don't expect to enjoy yourself as your more likely to find a well served... More

We just popped in to this place on our way to Nice, and I was a bit sceptic as this was in the middle of town in a small square. Normally I find restaurants situated like this to be of poor quality and expencive. But this time I was surprised. We did not have to wait for a table, as... More

There were a queue to get a table, but only some minutes to wait. The service was incredible fast, both for the menu, the food and dessert, even the bill and payment by card. The food was excellent! We chose real grilled beef for the adults and good pizza for the kids. Although I would have preferred to have been... More

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
