Having just arrived in France, we essentially picked this restaurant at random based on its location in a rather attractive square, looking for a relatively quick and inexpensive lunch with the family. Although I have now read a number of mixed reviews for this restaurant, our experience was extremely positive. Service was very efficient ensuring our children did not get... More

Was it just one of those random events or was typical of the operation? I will never know, but the staff admitted to being short-handed and the service was poor. One can get over that, but only if the food claims redemption. The duck was like shoe leather, and further comment is superfluous.

A pleasant outdoor table arrangement with umbrellas and a sunny village square made this hot June lunch special indeed. We were not in the mood for a large meal and opted for a Salade Nicoise and an Omelette with a carafe of wine...just enough to keep us fit until taking the drive back to the coast. Very cordial wait staff,... More

This restaurant is located in a lovely small square in the old town of Vence. The plat de jour offers good quality food and the set menu is also excellent. Very friendly, helpful staff. My favourite restaurant in Vence.

We ate here at lunch time on our first day in Vence. As so often in France the tables and parasols were set out so attractively, the sun was shining and tables quickly filled up. We had the plat du jour which was reasonably priced for the south of France and was freshly cooked and served with a smile! What... More

This restaurant is in a pretty square in Vence and serves genuinely interesting food which is very well prepared. My husband, who is a very discerning diner, said that his steak was one of the best he had eaten in France (and we visit France a lot). We had a wonderful strawberry tart for dessert and a pichet of the... More

We were staying in a nearby villa and the owners recommended we go and eat here so kindly booked us a table. The restaurant is in a beautiful area, with a great atmosphere from other surrounding restaurants. The service was good, we were not left waiting and the food came out quickly however I wouldn't say the food was anything... More

Ate here recently as we had been recommended it by friends. We got a table quite easily without having to book. There is an upstairs section too so don't be put off if it looks full. We chose the set menu and the food was really good. I had the fish soup which came with home made aioli, cheese and... More

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious lunch outside in the square if front of Le Pigeonnier on a warm, sunny afternoon in late March. Vence was still relatively devoid of tourists so the restaurant was not really busy. Service was friendly and attentive and the food a cut above what is often found down on the coast. The pasta...
