“A great French experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The Restaurant des Arcades is set in an idyllic position, a square at the heart of the picturesque (if somewhat touristy in the Summer) old village of Biot. We have spent many a happy summer evening there. The house/hotel is XVth century and peppered with works of art by Chagall and Picasso who used to eat there and became friendly with the family of Dede Brothier, the original owner and avid art collector. It is simply an institution in its own right. The food hankers after Cote d'Azur nostalgia, ranging from gratin d'aubergine or fleurs de courgettes farcies to gnocchi/ravioli or delicious rabbit stew. Desserts are also similarly classical, ranging from creme caramel to macaroon with fruits des forets. The layout is simple and unaffected, with food served outside when the weather permits, under the arcade or in the square itself. Go for the experience if nothing else!
