A busy restaurant in the old heart of Vence catering for locals and tourists. Good food and great service with a friendly atmosphere. This restaurant was recommended by the owner of the Hotel Miramar where we were staying.

We ate in this wonderful restaurant during our recent visit to Vence. Located right on the Place du Peyra, the restaurant is intimate without being crowded. The host was pleasant, spoke some English and explained various menu items. My wife ordered a fish dish consisting of two different types of fish arrange in thin slices like a millefeuille. She said... More

On a Monday, in the off season, there were few places open for lunch. This was fortunate, because otherwise I might have missed an excellent meal by eating elsewhere. The fish soup, with traditional accompaniments, had real depth of flavor, as did the wine sauce with the biche. The meat was very tender, and I enjoyed the chestnuts that came... More

The weather was dismal but this restaurant was busy! Staff were welcoming and we warmed up quickly in the cozy setting. Our entrée was over the top - creamy capuccino of cepes and noisettes. This could be a meal on its own. I chose the Biche which was tender and smothered in a reduction that was intense. The daube was... More

the restaurant is in a really nice square with a fountain and closed to traffic. We were served by a very nice waiter that took care of setting up a table were the kids could have their space. The food was nice and really fair for the price. We, the adults, had foie gras, salmon, maigret de canard, steak and... More

Wonderful service and superb Creme Brûlée.This restaurant is located in the historic walled city and is magically lit at night. We had the plat du jour menu and were impressed by the selection and quality of food and the excellent service. This was our first night in France and a lovely memory.

Found this place by chance having spent the morning in St Paul, took the bus to Vence and came upon the restaurant , situated as other reviewers have said in an enclosed square sharing the space with a number of other food establishments. It was coming to the end of the lunch period not too busy but service was good,... More

The food at Le Pigeonnier is good and good value for money. The staff appear to be very helpful but for non french speakers check your bill. An unexplained addition charge on one occasion is acceptable but when it happens on the next visit for a similar amount of money questions can be raised. In their favour matter was quickly... More

We just happened upon this restaurant after leaving Saint Paul de Vence as we though it may be a little less crowded in Vence. Great location in a little piazza with very friendly wait staff and surprising good food. Had the lamb lunch special and it was fantastic. Other had salad nicoise which was also very good. Fantastic desert and... More
