Tigers lost and we had an excellent meal. As it was during term time, my wife lost out(she is a teacher) and so I took my nephew instead. It was his first taste of fine dining and it won't be his last! We plumped for the degustation menu and considering it had two things on it which are not top... 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.

We went to this restaurant on our recent cruise through the Mediterranean, and decided to go on the advice of Trip Advisor's reviews and also Michelin. It is # 1 on both and I do not doubt it, as it is truly an excellent restaurant. The food is well prepared, fresh and high quality. This restaurant belongs to a couple,... More

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

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
