Lovely food and wine as always

Have eaten here before, and as always the food is great, fresh using seasonable meat and vegetables, and the menu changes on a very regular basis. Wine list extensive as ever and always a tough one to choose from! Only slight issue- as its summer everyone including us is wanting to sit outside... read more

Tucked away in one of the many narrow streets of Valbonne, this restaurant is a little gem. Eat outside if you can to soak up the atmosphere although the centre of Valbonne can be quite vibrant of an evening so it's not really somewhere for a quiet romantic meal. Food is excellent and there is a good choice. If you... More

As the title suggests, this is a very good restaurant - service was pleasant enough, but the food is where the restaurant stood out - the crab starter was excellent, followed by the veal fillet - couldn't fault it. Due to the locality of the restaurant and our wanting to dine outside, we sat on benches on a slope (picture... More

Had a delicious dinner here in July. Haddock appetizer was a highlight of the entrées. The lamb and beef were both hits for the main. Waiter recommended a lovely rose as well. Overall a winner.

We had a lovely dinner here on the street in June, with nice wine and very pleasant staff. It was so nice we would have eaten there again the next night but thought we should try others. Well worth eating there.

The presentation of the dishes is very good, but the taste has not something of extraordinary. I mean, it is not in the same level of the design of the dishes. Price is a little high.

Just off the busy square of valbonne village, which is worth several visits, you find this lovely little restaurant with great food, attentive staff and friendly prices. Inside and outside tables...a must if you eat in Valbonne more than once...

Quiet and slightly off the beaten track but lovely food; asparagus with a soft boiled egg and truffles, chicken in a delicious onion, mushroom and bacon sauce and cold strawberry and rhubarb iced soup as dessert. Inexpensive but delicious wine. Very quiet unlike the packed square. I always forget to warn visitors to Valbonne - parking is a nightmare! And... More
