First night in Le Lavandou - great place to unwind

We went there with friends who had also completed a long journey to be in Le Lavandou.Despite booking rather late, they squeezed us in and we had a very pleasant evening. The daurade which both the male diners chose was beautifully cooked and then filleted in front of us. The female diners both... read more

It could be just us, but this last dinner at this restaurant confirmed our previous lack of enthusiasm for it (last year). The setting could be charming, only if it were not for the lighting which seems to put you under a spot light no matter we you sit. Not very romantic! Service is ok. Food is just ok too.... More

Inn style Restaurant with lovely outdoor sitting area, popular. This was a bit of a surprise, often when I've seen menus loaded with items, French, Fish, Meat, Grills, Pasta, Pizza I have my doubts, I definitely come from the thought that a good limited menu provides the best food. This place totally knocks that on the head, its wide menu... More

We returned to the bistro des Sables for the 2nd year running and it did not disappoint. The food was as good as we remembered, with the menu centred around local fish and pizza. The service was attentive and well paced. 30 euros per head represented good value for this part of the world

Very nice and cosy Bistro des Sables with excellent food and nice service. All dishes very tasty and well presented & served. We have been there 3 times in winter, spring and fall and never disappointed. Make sure you book a table before getting there because this is a small place and quite quickly full! If you'd like to have... More

We ate here twice, both times for Sunday lunch. It was gratifying to see so many French people eating here too. On both occasions the meal was of a very high standard, the 'marmite des pecheurs', a special of the day on our first visit was particularly memorable, and very affordable. On the second visit we chose from the standard... More

This bistro is not on the beach, but it has all the charm you expect of a small Provençal restaurant especially the canopy created by a huge tree (maybe a platane) which gives the courtyard not only shade but character. The food is excellent. We shared a superb tuna tartare with salad, and we both had the Daurade royale, grilled.... More
