Atrocious service

Having been before and had a great meal, it is with regret that as a family we returned for lunch at around 3pm, to be told by the very rude young waitress that we could only eat salad and or pizza. She refused to bring water only giving our wine! The third time we asked she promptly turned heel... read more

I've often stopped and had a drink outside here during the summer and today was the first time I have had lunch. Very tasty, wholesome food with a nice local French touch (loved the crème brulé with truffle on the side), a very palatable wine, all reasonably priced. It looked good and was good, nothing overly fancy. We ate inside,... More

I must say, this restaurant, always having been a nice place to eat, has improved considerably both in service and food quality over the past couple of years. Nice and friendly. Idyllic setting.

Lots of choice, reasonable prices. The best thing is sitting in the square of Valbonne, great atmosphere.

Being located in the town square you would expect the normal tourist trap but this is NOT the case. This was a great find, friendly staff, nice location and excellent food. A must do and was well worth the trip.

Yes - 2 November and the sun was shining and the Square at Valbonne was heaving with people - and it seemed that they all wanted to eat at the Café des Arcades. We had a delightful - but not especially cheap - !lunch. The service was excellent and efficient but totally impersonal. Given the size of the place it... More

The restaurant is located in a small place in the center of Valbonne in a wonderful location especially in summer. The food is very good. Maybe a more sofisticated kitchen would complete a perfect offer.

I've eaten here a few times now over the summer both in the day time and evening, and have had good meals each time. As a vegetarian the selection is limited, but that is unusual in France. I have had both tomato and mozzarella salad and the chèvre chad salad as well as a pizza and all have been beautifully... More

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
