Good honest cooking and great value

Firstly do not go here if you want to feel special or posh. Do go here if you are visiting the Grasse area and you want a decent home cooked lunch for 16 euros with wine and coffee thrown in.

As always 'Chez Robert' is great value. €16 for four courses, wine and coffee included. Unbeatable in the south of France. This is somewhere to go for lunch when it is always packed. Given the price the food is excellent, all home cooked and if you finish your bottle of wine they will sometimes bring you another. Great !

Great food at a great value. I really liked being here; I liked the service and the spirit of St. Donat. Don't miss this place. It's a special vacation experience.

I was passing Plascassier at lunchtime and as I live in a place also called St Donat and was hungry I decided to call in. From the outside I wasn't even sure it was open and it certainly was not prepossessing.to look at. The blackboard said, and listed, four courses for €16. The main of these didn't really appeal, but... More

We stopped here because we couldn't get a car park space in Valbonne and we were very pleased we did! The evening meal menu had plenty of choice and the fact that the place was full of locals spoke volumes about the quality of the food and the service provided. We all had different pizzas and they were freshly prepared,... More

A great little eatery - judge by all the locals eating there! Excellent food - straightforward menu of classic favourites. Great value at dinner and especially the fixed price set menu at lunchtimes. Friendly busy attentive smiling service. What is there not to like about it?! Make sure you don't miss it!

This is one of the best ways to enjoy lunch at a very good price (now 16Euro for a 4 course lunch, wine and coffee). The menu is fixed except for dessert but is always excellent. Today was salade niçoise, lasagna, lamb shank with cassoulet, dessert (creme caramel in my case) and coffee, plus a pitcher of red wine for... More

Have been visiting this restaurant for some years. You get no choice of menu, but what you do get is delicious food served promptly and very friendly. 4 courses plus wine and coffee is just 16 euro. Can't be beaten anywhere.
