Jean Michel, the Chef, chooses his menu depending on what the market has to offer! Has a main course and a dessert but really fresh and original. Changes every day! We are sure to go there again:)

This small restaurant is only open for lunch (not Sunday's) but all dishes are hand made by Jean-Michel. No micro waved ore made dishes here. Arrive early as it gets full quickly in the summer. Located near the Geant supermarket, the excellence of its food makes up for the slightly less than picturesque location. We ate there today following repeated... More

Had lunch today. Very good food, also fast service (I was 3rd person to arrive). When the sun is shining it is nice to sit outside, but when its cloudy or raining the inside is rather cramped. Noticed most customers are local businessmen, which in itself is a recommendation. Highly recommended for a nice lunch enjoying the sun.

We came for lunch, based on these reviews. We expected the "English speaking hostess" but had to get by with our broken French. Not a problem, and the food was excellent. I found the vegetarian dish very, very rich (but this is France). The aioli cod was excellent. Very fine cuisine. Prices are more then the 10E noted on TripAd... More

I was in Mandelieu-la-Napoule to visit friends & they raved about this restaurant that they had just discovered. They made reservations for lunch one day & I'm still in "awe". We arrived & my friend was excited to show me the kitchen, small but efficient. We didn't order fast enough, so two of the specials were already sold out. I... More

We tried this tiny restaurant after stopping by, looking at the small hand-written chalked menu and made a lunch reservation. Everything was so flavorful and beautifully plated. Excellent choices for a tiny restaurant of 16 seats! The 2 tarts we tried for dessert were wonderful as well. We couldn't help but check out what other diners had and would have... More

We were invited by an old friend for lunch at this restaurant, and (having checked it out on TripAdvisor before we went) we were expecting something special. We were not at all disappointed. My wife had slivered cod in mashed potatoes, and I had a osso bucco made with turkey--I didn't know you could do that! Both were delicious, generous... More

Based on the many rave reviews on Trip Advisor for this cute little restaurant along a busy road in Mandelieu, we decided to give it a try. We always shop at the Geant Casino grocery store down the road. Even more surprising, we get our croissants and baguettes at the bakery just 2 doors down! After inquiring for a dinner... More

This little lunch spot (closed in the evening) is next to the Geant supermarket. But what a place! The menu is on a chalk board, little changes every few days (6-7 dishes) The food is very good, beautifull presented (chicken skewer with couscous in a glass!) and nice portions. The Tarte Tatin portion was huge... ;-) Even the café crème... More
