“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Lovely restaurant, fantastic service. The main restaurant is at the back of the building in the conservatory, lots of room between the tables, which is quite unusual for a French restaurant. The food was excellent, one of the best fillet steaks we have ever had, and the chocolate mousse was so tasty and light. Will definitely visit when we are next in the area.

“Nearly very good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Very pleasing decor with plenty of space between tables. The service was very efficient but lacked warmth and signs of genuine interest in the customer. The Cesar Salad was excellent as was the Carpaccio of Veal. The fillet steak was a superb piece of beef but slightly over cooked and just lukewarm, my wife's beefburger was also good but almost cold! Side dishes were extra and there was a most disappointing lack of fresh vegetables. The expesso was mediocre. We had a very nice Cote de Provence for €35 but overall the wine list was too expensive and clearly other diners felt the same as they were generally selecting wine by the glass.

“Nice evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This little hidden resturant is just a hidden pearl in the Antibes. Prices above average, but you get the best service and excelent food with quiet atmosphere.

“The new restaurant of Antibes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The restaurant has just reopened after some years of renovations but we have already been there twice. The location is perfect at the heart of the old town. The setting is modern and informally elegant. The courtyard by nice and the opening roof a major plus. Only negative point: a bit noisy when the roof is closed. But what it really makes the difference is the quality of their meat: really excellent. The chef is really good and most of the staff friendly and efficient. Value is good.
