This restaurant crams people in and won't let anyone walk away to one of the opposition restaurants in the square. The waiter took out order without writing it down and therefore got it completely wrong, one dish never arrived. The food comes out at different times, usually the pasta dishes first. My linguine with scallops and kings prawns was awful.... More

Within the bustle of a busy French village lies this lovely, family friendly restaurant. The service was faultless and the food was perfect for all though not exactly haute cuisine. I don't recommend the veal as it came overdone but the steak and pizza was great. The location was great fun and we loved enjoying the lively ambiance of Valbonne.... More

We are a family of 5 adults and we visited this restaurant at the end of August. We all had starters and main courses, mainly consisting of Pizza, Pasta & Garlic Bread. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food and we would definitely dine hear again. We paid less than €100 which included drinks which I think is very reasonable particularly... More

Lovely square, fab service and food. Always busy. We have worked our way through the menu. The service, food and menu are always fab. The bill for nine people is approx €190 and it is value for money. A great place for people watching with multi lingual waiters.

Went here just for dessert with a friend and sat on the terrace enjoying the views of the main square. The café gourmand came with a chocolate mousse, creme caramel, panna cotta and cocount macaroon which were all delicious and my friend had the tart tatin which was impressive! The translation of the menu in English is amusing and not... More

This beast of a place is full on busy, but churns out excellent food through a well oiled and highly efficient manner. They have a few kitchens - e.g. Grill / seafood and they food served is delicious. Great atmosphere also. I just wish I owned it at is a money pit!

Beautiful location in a Medieval French square. Food was good and the atmosphere was great. The staff were pleasant with just the right amount of "Frenchness"
