Really love to eat here and will do so many times in the future. Solid cuisine and good service and presentation. Friendly, helpful, and I feel honest in the food and value. Have been twice with two different groups and each time it's been a treat.

The lovely square was full and we happened across this place and what luck! The food is a step above the usual fare, a big step. Very fresh, beautiful flavours, imaginatively put together food. The chef has put real thought into each dish. We only had starters at lunch time as we weren't very hungry and they were all amazing.... More

A lovely tonic to the fast paced restaurants on the square. Great food, beautifully presented. The children's meals were tasty and fresh. As adults we gorged on some very well put together dishes, well presented and served with charm. Highly recommend a visit....

Walking up to the main square, from the car park, we happened across this tiny restaurant that we could have easily missed. Owned for the past year by husband and wife team it was a real find. We enjoyed it so much we ate here twice. The owners were extremely friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was great. The food... More

I loved this place. It's a bit pricey but so is everything on the cote d azur. The service was friendly and the dishes were all perfect. I definitely recommend it.

Came to this place based on tripadvisor. Mildly disappointed, as we found the food average at best. Had a tuna tartar, which was good. Problem were the main courses: one of the worse lambs of my life, and a very average nothing special fish dish. Cheese was a disappointment as well. Deserts were ok, wine nothing special (although 1 of... More

We are a family of 4 with two fussy 11 and 13 year old eaters who were very dubious about a 'French' restaurant. Since going they've asked to return every night! The food is superb, the ambience is special and the hosts are very warm, friendly and helpful. Brilliant place and way ahead of anywhere in Valbonne square. You need... More

Fab meal with friends. Great good, great service, wonderful wine. Best meal we've had in Valbonne by a mile!! Small but complete menu and as there were 6 in our party almost everything was tasted by our group - no bad plates.

Fridays are busy market days in Valbonne & after our fun experience we were welcomed without having made a reservation. The menu was very interesting, the hostess charming & the chef delivered delightful food, all at a very reasonable cost. Excellent and looking forward to returning.
