great food

this place is always packed out in the summer months so make sure you reserve a table. Last year they had a set menu which was much better value for money but I still always get the duck and it is (always) incredible. I had goats cheese pastries for starters served with salad and edible flowers... read more

We had an excellent meal at this charming little restaurant. Everything on the menu looked good, and I can confirm that the dishes we had lived up to the promise. The beef Daube was bursting with rich deep favours and was one of the best dishes I have ever tasted. Recommended.

We have eaten at this restaurant about 8 times over the last few years. We have always been more than satisfied. Today we enjoyed the foie gras with the most delicious fig chutney. It was superb. For mains my wife had the vegetarian salad which was really imaginative. As ever I had the daube which was wonderful with great flavours... More

We were a large group (13) but the table had been booked and the restaurant knew our number. The organisation within the restaurant was not sufficiently efficient to cater adequately for our number and the other diners. Some of the desserts, when they eventually arrived, had been standing under lights, causing cream to run off the dish.

A really stunning location in an old square with a very typical French menu. The food was lovely and the service good. We would recommend for a nice relaxing evening in the south of France.

We visited this restaurant on the advice of a tour guide. The food was superb, service second to non and overall price for the quality of food was second to non. Would definitely recommend and go back.

Our family ate at this wonderful restaurant three times whilst visiting Vence. It was, by far, the best food we had the entire holiday. We also at several other restaurants in Vence that are favourites of the other Trip Advisor members but to us there was really no comparison. The steaks (at only Euro 20.00) were fantastic as was the... More

The food at this restaurant is sublime, our whole family enjoyed their meal including our rather picky 14 year old. The mix of tastes was beautiful and the price was very reasonable. Our only downside is that you always have to wait for a table, of course we could have booked but that would require forward thinking and we like... More
