Very nice place to sit and watch the world go by.

Since this is just in the center of town, this is a very nice place to sit and watch the world go by - both day and night. Good food. Friendly staff. Nice.

We ended up going here twice because we enjoyed it so much. Prices were reasonable, and all of the food was excellent. Service was also exceptional: attentive and welcoming. Overall, it was one of the best restaurants we enjoyed during our trip to France.

We ate outside in a courtyard area, lovey environment. Food was nice and not rushed. I had fish which tasted very fresh and was delicious. We tried the Provencal wine, after the recommendation from the waiter, which we found extremely pleasing ... too much so that we had two bottles !

We have eaten at Le Pigeonnier on several occasions during our visits to Vence. The food has always been excellent. We have at times found that the service could have been better, yet on other occasions it was excellent. The location in the centre of Vence has a lot of ambience especially at night. It is well worth a visit... More

We chose this restaurant for our last night in Vence. The food was excellent however the staff thought that talking to each other was more important than serving the customers. The final thing was having to ask 3 times for the bill in a 15 minute time frame. Go for the food but be prepared for a slow meal.

On our recent visit we ate here twice. Both times the food was superb. The daube was one of the best I have tasted and the duck was also wonderful. The service was punctual and friendly and the beer and wine were perfectly chilled. I would definitely come back here.

We stayed for a week in Vence and dined out most nights. One of our favourite meals was at Le Pigeonnier in a picturesque square in the old quarter of Vence. There were four restaurants sharing outside seating here but the quality of the food seemed to favour Le Pigeonnier. I had an excellent duck dish, my wife an enjoyable... More

On visiting the Saint Paul de Vence Commune in the Alps Region in southeastern France, we found the nicest restaurant hidden away in this medival village that give you such a great view while dining or just having a cafe or latte. Don't miss this charming village if you're anywhere near Monte Carlo or Nice, Italy.

Ate at midday and the ambiance was wonderful/ Waiting staff were very attentive and pleasant. Food was good with lots of choice, even for vegetarians. Grande salads on offer were freshly made and good quality.

Had dinner here on a balmy May evening, the service and quality of food was very good and the setting in a small quiet square made for a relaxing experience.
