A very good restaurant close to Antibes. The food is excellent, serving sizes in the menues more than sufficient. A hand for goose liver. Anytime again!

I rarely write reviews online, but after struggling to find good restaurants and getting sick of eating the same stuff at every tourist restaurant in the area - all with awful service and inflated prices, we were so pleased to find the bois dore. Fantastic food, very good service and reasonable prices. We have eaten at many of the finest... More

We called in here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised to find a fixed price menu, which included two courses and a glass of wine for under 20 euros. The same items from the a la carte menu would have cost about twice this amount. Everything we had was excellent and the service was very good as well.

We decided to go there late on a thursday evening. it was wonderful. We ate outside in the garden. The waiter was very funny and spoke some english. The food was excellent!... More

Food was good but the service was awful. The waiters especially one particular individual were not only very slow but arrogant as well. We were not locals and it quickly became obvious that other diners local to the area were being served first. We waited and waited and when we eventually mentioned this politely (in french) was told that “its... More

Very french cuisine. Beautifully decorated dishes. When we went it was a Sunday so it was very busy. found the service very poor, took almost an hour to recieve our starter. Otherwise nice restaurant, outdoor seating. The atmosphere is great. The Salmon with wild rice is very delicious. Nice desserts also.

I have visited this place for lunch and dinner many times and have never been disappointed. They serve a low cost lunch menu that is really good however the a la carte menu at lunch and dinner is truly an opportunity to enjoy classic french gastronomy at a reasonable price. There is a covered terrace in summer which is about... More
