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

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
