Nice food and an excellent atmosphere.

What a nice surprise in one of the most beautiful villages in the south of France. The service was very good and they can deliver some excellent food. 1 Star Michelin, you have to do that ;)

We last visited this restaurant 20 years ago and were surprised to find it still there. The owners have changed and so has the chef. We had wonderful food explained carefully to us in a charming environment and overall a lovely evening

We enjoyed the starters of Fish soup and Foie Gras. The croutons in the soup were wonderful. The steak with morel mushrooms served with a potato gratin and the the fish special with asparagus were sublime. Simple but excellent. The bonus was the classic toy store wrapped around the tables where you could ignore the toys or reminisce about times... More

We went here two nights ago and had a lovely experience. They had 3 appetizer specials. Richard had the crab salad (I could have eaten half of it if I hadn't had my own lovely appetizer). I tried the Royal Fois Gras with baby artichokes... delicious. Richard had the fish special which was cooked perfectly and I had a beef... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the overall quality and freshness of the dishes we ordered: great sophisticated tastes.

A friend of us told us this was a place to try. And we did and we weren't dissapointed. The restaurant itself is not really nice, no terrace, tables are a bit packed but we went with our daughter and two of our dogs and we had a very nice welcome. We didn't get a table next to the window... More

We had dinner at this place this evening. We didn't like it at all. The main dishes were ordinary and the total overpriced, the service was... well.. too fast. And paying €93 for such a dinner was way too much. Regarding the food; the side-dishes were excellent. The sous-chef is probably better than the chef, assuming the terrine was his.... More

If you are looking for good food and don't mind bad tempered waitresses, this is your place. This restaurant is supposed to be "child friendly" because they have a toy store at the back. However, it is not. They made it increasingly obvious to us that our kids were an annoyance and that they were unhappy we were there. We... More

Had a good meal here, especially the risotto starter which was excellent. Liked everything about it but felt the wine was expensive and that made the whole meal expensive. There are better restaurants in Bormes for a cheaper price.

When you pass the restaurant, don't get thrown off by the toys that are hanging on the wall. Because yes, the hostess also sells classic toys. But once you're seated, you will be able to enjoy a lovely cosy restaurant with pure food. The food was simple, pure and excellent. My fiance and I aren't easily impressed, but it's the... More
