Food was bad but the service was woeful. We ordered a bottle of red wine. The waitress returned with a half bottle of another wine. When we declined the bottle and asked to see the wine-list again she rolled her eyes and stomped away. Turned out they only had 3 of the wines on their list. But worse than the... More

It is set in a lovely location, except for the unwanted musicians, but the wait of over one hour between the starter and the main course was far too long. And when the main course did arrive it was not great, the steak was thin and the fries were the prepared type. Overall just average and not one to recommend... More

We chose this restaurant based on the menu outside although it did not appear on my hastily assembled list from Trip Advisor before leaving our hotel. We chose well and were pleasantly surprised on all counts. From the menu which had a good selection, the food was excellent at a very good price. The service was "relaxed" as the place... More

We had dinner here once, but that one time was great. We had a beautiful piece of meat with fries and salad. A half a liter or Rosé and a bottle of water. As dessert we had a coffee gourmand. It was delcious and very affordable.

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.
