“I love their Steak tartare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

I returned yesterday to this restaurant to enjoy their steak tartare (raw beef meet). The restaurant is located in the tiny center of Callian in front of a fountain with terraces. Typically Provence. My friend and myself discovered a "degustation" of steak tartare. In fact, you get 3 portions on your dish and the waiter explained one needs to start with the " original" steak tartare on your dish. Than you need to try the Italian one and finally the one with Roquefort cheese in it. The reason for this eating order is because the one with Roquefort tastes stronger than the Italian one. The fries were abundant available, but they were not as excellent as their delicious steak tartare. Price was 17€ per steak tartare, that's not expensive at all. The owners and staff were remarkabely friendly, which is always a nice thing. You can sit either inside or outside on a terrace with views on the valley. The weather was not good enough to remove the "plastic transparant cover around it"...but that didn't bother. Don't expect superb interior design etc.... It is a rural village restaurant. I'll definitively return again when I'm in the mood for the steak tartare, but with the very large portions they served, it won't be tomorrow :)

“consistently good food in a great family run friendly brasserie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Visited le bellevue for lunch and dinner last week, having been there two or three times over the past few years also. The food was as good as ever (Highly recommend the pave rump steak with pepper sauce and it comes with amazing duck fat chips). The staff are always friendly and helpful and make me and my family welcome even though our spoken french is absolutely terrible !!

Great place for eating al fresco or just popping in for a pint or a few glasses of wine.

Genuinely very friendly staff, but no idea how they can manage to make such a poor pizza. genuinely the base tasted like it was stale.

“N & T”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Charming and friendly staff. Food unpretentious and good.Really excellent value.
We have eaten there on many occasions and there is always a lively atmosphere and warm welcome. Summer time lunches by the fountain are a treat.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Bellevue is an unpretentious restaurant with ok food. Not great, but folks don't come here food the great food, but for the atmosphere of the square and the fountain, the church and the people.
