We decided to return to dine in Gassin after such a great experience at Le Pescadou the previous evening. Given the reviews on trip advisor we thought we'd try Au Vieux Gassin but I can only assume that many of the reviewers are very easily pleased! The appearance of the restaurant is nowhere near as attractive as Le Pescadou with... More

Eight of us had dinner here on a Sunday evening. Whilst the house cocktail was lovely (framboise & champagne), a number of things on the daily menu were unavailable (not sure why they weren't just scrubbed off given they were written on in chalk). Whilst some of the food was good, a number of the meals ordered were pretty ordinary.... More

Just returned from a week in the South and visited here 5 nights and had excellent food, great service from Valerie and the team, and a friendly atmosphere in a terrific location overlooking St. Maxime and the St. Tropez bay.Ward, Cambridge.

Great restaurant at the back of Gassin, many overpriced and pretentiously menued neighbours, this one is a gem, delicious fish on kids menu - I always love the view from the wc!!

As "locals" of Gassin (not permanent residents) we were so disappointed that Au Vieux appears to be letting our little village down. My husband and I support all the restaurants along the Gassin Old Village 'strip" during our annual visits but could not have been more disappointed with our visit to this once delightful restaurant.

The food is no more than average, the location is lovely up in the Gassin village overlooking the bay of Saint Tropez. That's the highlight though. The street this is on is a heavy tourist zone. So a bit of a tourist trap.

Went for dinner with our two small children - the large open terrace adjacent to the restaurant makes it very child friendly / food is excellent and good value for the area / will definitely come again

Lovely restaurant on the Main Street in Gassin. Very relaxed atmosphere and food was good. Also very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend it, probably the best in Gassin!

It's several years since I have changed to the Vieux Gassin after being a faithful annual diner at one of the other restaurants on the esplanade. Welcome on booking was a bit abrupt but once we arrived for dinner, the food was excellent and the service friendly. The boss was obviously upset by the last review on TripAdvisor. I suppose... More

Hectic, inattentive waitresses, no ambience, food not persuasive at all, we won't come again and can't give an recommendation
