We were recommended this restaurant by a local friend and had dinner here. It is beautifully located on the square and is a constant hub of activity with a great atmosphere. The food is supremely good, the service is excellent and the staff lovely. We made a point of returning for breakfast and drinks and would have eaten there again... More

When I lived in valbonne this resto was a constant haunt of mine with family friends and for a date night. The food is always consistently good and service is quick. It's very good value for what you get since alot of theyre food is home made and large portions. Love it and would always go back

This is my go-to place in Valbonne. Consistently good food; slick service and a friendly welcome throughout the year. And with a prime position on the main square, the location is unbeatable. Quite pricey, but worth it.

We have enjoyed this restaurant several times over the last few years and returned again to Valbonne again this year for another look. The square is so picturesque so it's easy to sit down and watch the world go by. This year we were with family so there were 7 of us dining. The food was just as good as... More

We stumbled into the square at the very beginning of our holiday and chose to eat in this bustling restaurant. We ended up returning several times over the coming weeks - six in total!! Our children loved the pizza, service was always speedy, sometimes almost too quick. Great value and the perfect place to rewind and watch the world relax.

I have been here very frequently for the past 10 years. It is a nicely decorated restaurant with a very nice location. It is the biggest restaurant on the Valbonne village square. I have rated this restaurant as "average" because the food is not anything special and the service is not great. There are many young waiters that are not... More

For a long time I've avoided this place due to the poor service. I went one morning last week to meet a friend, who is a regular there, for coffee. The service, or rather, lack of service, was deplorable. The waiter ignored us studiously on several passes for at least 10 minutes, and they weren't busy. I asked for a... More

It's fine for basics and the location is great. Given the size and turnover don't expect very personal service and the food is perfectly OK but nothing special. Probably the best bet in the square but better places down the side streets.

This cafe is an institution in Valbonne and a great spot for a pizza or plat de jour, but in busy times the service is often curt or even rude due to the sheer volume of people wanting a table. However, the waiters and chefs all know their stuff here so visit off season, enjoy the pleasure of the sun... More

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
