we have been living in Valbonne for 2 years and never tried the Bois Dore. I had been there for lunch years ago when corporate lunches were abundant. 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.

As per usual, the food is delicious and the service very good, I have known this restaurant for many years, and we never had a bad meal. Nice dinning room and big terrace.

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

Le Bois d’Orée is a popular restaurant and booking is essential. In addition to the ‘carte’ they have a series of fixed price menus, some including wine, coffee etc (“formule”). The least expensive is 19.50 euro for a starter and a main course (or main course and dessert), with a glass of wine included. Taking the same from the carte... More

We went after being turned away elsewhere and were pleasantly surprised. Very elegant surroundings, attentive service (at least until we wanted the bill, but that seems endemic to France) and most importantly, delicious food. I ordered the mussels gratinee and the steak with port sauce off the carte, husband ordered from the menu marche - Caesar salad and skirt steak.... More

Not sure if this is best. Food okay. Service okay. Atmosphere good. Prices high. Location good is staying in Valbonne area. There are better places to have a nice meal. Good for a large group to be accommodated. Would give a second chance I guess to make sure.

The quality is generally OK, but the menu generally lacks originality. The prices are reasonable and the staff quite nice. They have a nice patio.

Very pretty setting on the terrasse. Large menu...too large. Our appetizers were good . A sampling of tomatoes with soup , tomatoes with mozzarella , and a pizza sampling was more than sufficient. The main course of cod was mushy and felt as if it had been frozen and reheated.. No no for this part of France . Service was... More
