“Pleasant surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Although we had not dined at the Auberge le Chantegrill for a few years, we decided to give it a try again on a rainy Friday evening in late July because of its convenience to our rental home in Grasse. We got a last minute reservation for a party of 6, including 2 children ages 7 and 9. Because of the rain, we ate in the main dining room. We were surprised to see a very nice children's menu available.Three adults had the 40 euro menu, one ordered a la carte and the children ordered from the children's menu. The food was very good and much improved since our last visit. I understand that there is new management. They have retained what was good about the Chantegrill and the food and service did not disappoint!

“Could be much better!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We came for lunch, we were seated at our booked table near the ventilation of sewer...( whole terrace was empty, and stayed empty for one table) we were reseated after we made hesitations to sit down.(by the way, nice terrace and a lot of private parking).
2 of us ordered the lunch menu 24€ and one of us the menu of 20 € ( no dessert). Our guest who ordered the 24 € menu, asked if instead of the sweets on the menu she could get some cheese , the answer was" it's not in this menu madam" she said " well any french restaurant will have a cheese platter, so I am sure you can serve me some cheese" Reply, "certainly madam". To our surprise 5 € was added to the bill.
The food: was ok, but the french fries came to our table burned and.... soggy, amazing how you can achieve that. We sent them back, and they returned with well baked fries ( no apology), after our remark" these are much better" the reply was, " they are the same...".
While we were still drinking our apero, they came asking 3 times if we would like to order the wine, at the first request we made it clear that we would order it later, a bit pushy I am afraid.
We have seen several waitresses serving our table, instead of one responsible for us.
Service: not up to standard, not very welcoming...!

“Very good - new owners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

Having been several years, our expctations were moderate but food has always been OK. To our pleasant surprise, the staff is mostly the same, but the decorations and menu are new. Go for the 40 Euro menu and you will not be disappointed. We had a lovelt evening with attentive service and reasonably priced drinks. Good was delicious and above expectations. Do sit outside but at inner terrace as the front one by the parking heats up quickly in the evening sun and cars can be a bit annoying. Enjoy!

“Lovely setting not matched by quality of food or service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

This restaurant is in a lovely setting with an outdoor dining area set among attractive gardens. However, sadly the food and service disappoint. Went here a couple of years ago and were unfavourably impressed. Attracted by the big sign announcing new ownership we went again. I had pork cooked with a brown sugar and soy sauce. Couldn't taste the pork at all and the sauce unappetising My wife ordered the duck breast which was quite tasty but also tough and disagreeably chewy. Service for us was ok but the people at the table next to us who arrived at much the same time as us were only served their first course when we had finished our dessert. At 32 Euros this is not good value. Their 18 Euro menu is not served weekends or holidays. You can eat better for less in Peymeinade less than 5 minutes drive away.

“A very enjoyable experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Our first experience under new ownership although have been here many times before. A very warm welcome, menu now in English and French. English is spoken if needed. Service impeccable and food never disappoints. New owners trying very hard to please. I understand more improvements to come...looking forward to our next visit....
