L'Empreinte is a lovely upscale restaurant serving innovative dishes in a soothingly appointed contemporary air conditioned dining room. The staff is attentive without being intrusive. The sommelier is knowledgeable and honest. He recommended a locally produced white wine instead of a nationally recognized, i.e. expensive, wine to pair with our baked sea bass main dishes. Appetizers were succulent, main course... More

Price 110 euros - a fair price. The wine card is not big, but have wines in many qualities and price levels. Although a gourmet restaurant the atmosphere is calm,... More

We were staying at Aiguebelle near Le Lavandou and we had a fantastic dinner in this lovely restaurant few steps away from our hotel. The experience was appreciated and the food was excellent. Above all we enjoyed a grilled turbo with truffles and above all a super crousti-choco dessert! Congratulations!

We enjoyed another delicious meal at l'Empreinte. A wonderful combination of flavours in the "grande" menu. Grand, in quality but not in price. It is pleasing to see that this restaurant is attracting good patronage as it deserves to be well recognised

We recently enjoyed a splendid lunch at L'Empreinte. We chose the Menu and it was well presented, tasty and good portions. The fish for the main meal was cooked to perfection The service was excellent, friendly without being overpowering. We highly recommend a visit and hope this restaurant continues to flourish. it is a welcome addition for Le Lavandou
