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. We went for the full menu, four courses plus some extras. Fois gras with ice cream (very interesting!), lobster "soup" (magnificent), veal (really tasty), and a superb white... More

My Wife and I ate here last Friday whilst in Toulon for the rugby. Jean Marc welcomed us at the door by name which was a nice touch. The food here is prepared individually by his Wife Valerie and changes on a regular basis. Regional and seasonal food mixed with an extensive range of wines makes this one of the... More

Take your time here. The "menu dégustation" changes every few weeks; I can say that mine was seasoned and cooked to perfection (asparagus, foie gras, lobster, veal, plus white chocolate and mango dessert). I was welcomed with warmth and attention, and can say with confidence that this is one of the best restaurant meals I can ever remember eating. High... More

We went to Toulon for the rugby, however, we chose this restaurant based on all the comments we read: good for carnivores and vegetarians. With a call in advance, to make reservations and to inform the chef that one of us was a vegetarian, all was in order for our absolutely fantastic experience. We travel quite a lot, all over... More

Delicious food and managed to cater for our "weird" needs i.e. one vegetarian and one gluten free without it seeming like a big deal. Very knowledgeable chef and sommelier. No complaints. Excellent value for money - would definitely go back the next time we are in Toulon.

It is always possible to cope with it when told in advance, this is why we strongly suggest our... More
