Good spot for outdoor dining

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.

Le Pigeonnier is a wonderful little restaurant with great service and fabulous food. Their cream of broccoli soup is heavenly and the ambiance inside the restaurant is about as good as anyone could hope for. You won't disappointed.

The food is excellent and the restaurant has beautiful furnishings. The wait staff could have been a bit more attentive, but the experience was fun, delicious and well priced. The location is in the center of old town and a really fun area of Vence.Highly recommend.

I loved the red Mediterranean fish [rougie] not unlike a rock fish. It was beautifully prepared and delicious. My husband had an excellent cod dish, equally pretty and tasty. The wait staff is outstanding plus fun and funny. There is lovely dining outside on the pedestrian only area as well as inside. Highly recommend.

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.

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
