Charming and delicious

Been there three times already over two trips to the Lavandou; a must go for everyone who likes tasty and beautiful mediterranean food.

Saturday evening and the place was buzzing. The dining room was full, overflow tent across the road was busy too. The well-drilled staff work very hard and the service is very efficient. We both had the €38 2-choice menu which comes with plenty of surprise extras, before and after. Starters were a terrine of loup or an aubergine construction -... More

We spend most holidays in Bormes and have done for 20 years. We often frequent la farigoulette and I can honestly say it's one of my favourite eateries in the area. It's off the main strip of town, up in la fossette. It's a chilled out relaxing restaurant where the family owners are always welcoming and friendly, even when we... More

Have no illusions, the terrace is beside a secondary road, but when the food and wine are good, who cares? An unexpected "amuse guele" opener consisting of warm white chocolate with truffles got everyone off to a good start. And a local "digestive" closer proffered and offered by the chef completed a better than just good culinary experience. In between,... More

It was a lovely surprise to find this very welcoming veranda by the other side of the Fossette bay! The atmosphere on the veranda was really cosy and the whole menu was tasting and high level! We appreciated also the kindness of the chef, who personally introduced every dish and explained its composition! Wow!

Nothing special in terms of location ... quite average as a matter of fact ... BUT great cooking experience ... far better than just an average bistro kitchen ! The "Automne Menu" at 48€ offers a perfect price value mix, good product quality, nice portions and good cooking, and that goes for the starters as well as for the main... More

We have made two visits at this restaurant and at each visit we where enthousiastic. What is clever is the reduced choise for starters , mains and deserts. This is the key I beleive for the freshness and the taste. The owner/cook comes at your table and describes the dishes and allows you to do the right choise. Taste was... More
