Have eaten here now a couple of times - both lunch times. The other reviews about bad or slow service are not our experience. Love everything we've eaten here - fish, steak, fish soup, salads, apple tart and a really superb café gourmand. One of our favourite places to eat inside with its low ceilings, beams, steep stairs. The outside... More

We just happened upon this restaurant after leaving Saint Paul de Vence as we though it may be a little less crowded in Vence. Great location in a little piazza with very friendly wait staff and surprising good food. Had the lamb lunch special and it was fantastic. Other had salad nicoise which was also very good. Fantastic desert and... More

If Le Pigeonnier was in the Vence Olympics it would miss out on the medals and get beaten by La Farigoule in Gold position, La Cassolette in Silver and Les Lavandes in Bronze. A four star rating is very good and three is average but its somewhere in between and we would have rated it 3.5 if we could. It's... More

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
