I was on my way to visit the perfume shops and came across this cozy restaurant. The staff is very friend. They don't have English menu and the owner was very patient to explain each dish to me in English. In the end I decided to try the local Grasse dish Fassum. It's very special, but bit salty to my...

Given the TA reviews we booked just in case, given the restaurant is small. We received a very warm welcome and the waitress (Owner?) was most helpful regarding the menu. Chose the local specialty - fish with vegetables - and the steak with fried potatoes. Very underwhelming in both cases; the fish was somewhat dry and the vegetables were bland... More

A quiche should have a crispy bottom. This was soaked starch. Ordered fish. Could not eat 'hospital food' in France. No reason for poor quality and prep. Most French restaurants change menu to effect what's fresh. This restaurant has a yellow paged, sticky fingers, old menu that doesn't alter. Very disappointing. No patio only indoors. Better alternatives.

We visited after reading positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Fixed price lunch menu was delicious and good value. I had the Assiette Provencale...a greatest hits of local dishes, which was very good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Around 20 euros per head for 2 courses and a drink. Would recommend.

We went to this restaurant following a recommendation. We made sure to try their famous Aoili which comes with white fish and vegetables. It was like being at my grandmother's house where everything has the bejeezus boiled out of it. The vegetables were so overdone and sad and the fish was tough as old boots. The Aoili was so strong...

Stopped here on an off chance just passing. There were 7 of us and they were pretty full, but went out of their way to seat us. We had the daily menu which had lovely choices on it. The house red was lovely and had a perfectly cooked steak. They created a special veggie dish for my partner which was... More

Daily menu (so good and sadly not so often) Family restaurant. Perfectly cooked fish and Guinea fowl. Just go there, these people know what they are doing and offer a taste of la France.
