A special experience!

A beautiful quaint little gem of a restaurant offering incredible food in a relaxed atmosphere. The manager/waiter not only gives you fantastic options, but is extremely kind mannered, patient and makes the desserts himself, which are literally the cherry on-top. The food is from start to finish... read more

The decor reminds you of the butchers shop it used to be but don't be put off. The food and service are excellent and it is very good value for money. We would highly recommend it.

We went as a family and had an excellent meal here with some superb desserts in particular. There was a festival on so the street atmosphere added to the ambiance, make sure you get a table outside, you will probably have to book though.

As a family aged between 16 and 55 we had a wonderful evening at this restaurant! The service and information provided to us was attentive and detailed. The menu, which we initially thought was limited, encouraged us to broaden our horizons and not stick to the familiar! The food was fabulous, and accompanied by wines especially chosen to complement the... More

I have eaten 3 times in this place with very inconsistant results. We tried it again and were disapointed with the food and the choices in the menu. The main course was sp bad that we bearly eat it. The service is very good, the atmosphere outside on the street is very nice as well. I will not return and... More

We ate here a couple of weeks ago during a flying visit to La Colle sur Loup. The terrace outside is prettily typical of a traditional french village and on a warm evening the atmosphere is lovely. We ate the 24euro set menu; eating late we didn't want a huge tasting menu. The food was really good and the proprietor... More

We chose the restaurants based on location and reviews. We had a really good Sunday lunch. we all had different dishes - and opted for the suggested wines to follow each course. We were not disappointed. The wines were perfectly suited to the dishes. Service was good (and slow - the French style). The interior is small - that day... More

Though the restaurant is very small & the decor appear simple, the food most certainly is not! The service was excellent in both French & English. Well worth a visit & close to St Paul de Vence. Tiny place, so book in advance.
