We visited this restaurant twice for the lunch and wanted the "menu du jour". Allthough announced outside, both times it was not available at all . We asked for a replacement, which was not possible. For me the "menu du jour" is rather a tourist trap. One time they announced the menu was'nt available after we ordered the first course... More

What a pity to read your words about our restaurant. You pretend that you came for lunch twice. Why would you do so if our place is really a tourist trap ? What you wrote is just false.But writing that we are dishonest is simply insulting, and rather than a long answer or justification, I prefer to let the readers... More

We chose to dine here after reading the positive reviews and were certainly not disappointed! La Promesse is a unique, warm and intimate setting, unlike anything I have experienced before. There are a limited number of covers as Jean Marc and his wife Valerie run the restaurant on their own, and this just adds to the ambience and uniqueness of... More

This a restaurant that is sold on the entire experience and it does not fail to live up to expectations, however areas could be improved with another pair of hands. We all went for the degustation menu which started with a lentil amuse bouche with crisp parma ham and black truffle, beautiful dish but sadly no seasoning to speak of!,... More

Have you ever experienced entering a restaurant, and immediately feeling like you have entered the house of very good friends? No, you say? Well that is because there are not many restaurants like that. La Promesse however, is exactly like that. As soon as the door opened and the owner greeted us with a kind bon soir, we knew the...

We went to eat at La Promesse because of its highly rated reviews. It is in fact excellent and the reviews are right. Perfect food, perfect service, good ambiance and although it is not an inepensive reestaurant, you get what you pay for. We will return any time we are in Toulon.

Arrived with quite high expectations based on what we had read about the place, And La Promesse satisfied them all - even exceeded them. Very warm service, with excellent information and advice.
