We visited this restaurant earlier this week. Our third trip to this restaurant in the past year. It was yet again an amazing experience - faultless in every way and food that looks as good as it tastes. Having eaten at a few Michelin star restaurants in the area we remain confused as to why Lou cigalon hasn't received the... More

Since last time we visited, they gave maestro Thierry two forks in the Michelin Guide. Our only question is; why didn't he get a star. What an evening; the food is artistic in its composition and the taste is as it must be in paradise - if such place ever exist. We are already looking forward to Easter, as that... More

This is a great gastronomic experience with truly quality French classic cuisine and superb wines. Be careful when selecting the wines as the cellar has some fine (expensive!) offerings as well as really excellent good value house wines. I live in Opio and know the place well ...and I can say that neither I nor friends have ever had a... More

My wife and I had lunch here a few weeks ago, and we were delighted with the superb quality of the cuisine. The 3 course table d'hote (plus amuse bouche) was €29 per person; with a good bottle of wine and 2 bottles of water, the bill was over €100, but the value was undoubted, as we received a stunning...

For a memorable fine dining experience may we suggest Lou Cigalon! This is a small restaurant, tucked off the main road in the Cote d'azur village called Valbonne. My husbnd had eaten here for business and always raved about the great cuisine. Due to limited number of tables the restaurant is often full, so book well in advance to avoid... More

What a wonderful evening. My husband and I went for dinner last night and struggled to make a decision from the menu as there were too many delicious options. We were pleasantly surprised how flexible the menu was and settled for 3 courses. While we waited for our starters we were presented with a selection of cheeky amuse bouches ;a... More

Hadn't been a great admirer of reviews before, always a little sceptical, but the rave write ups about Lou Cigalon inspired me to book a table for 2 for a romantic dinner with my better half. We go to a lot of restaurants so our expectation of this tiny venue in a small provincial town was not too high. Couldn't... More

We returned to Lou Cigalon in Valbonne and will always visit when in the area. Food very special with set menu but flexible if customers are allergic/intolerable to some ingredients. Our first course was a soft boiled egg with truffles and sauce with mushrooms. One of our party is intolerant of mushrooms & substitutions were made...so fine in both preparations.... More

Beyond our expectations we were absolutely positively surprised. Starting from the very warm welcome over the great selection of wines through the extremely creative dishes, always made to the point, we had an evening and dining experience which we only got to know in restaurants that have at least one michelin star. According to our experience this is the best... More
