Recalling the delightful meal we had here even now triggers a Pavlovian reflex. Nestled in a townhouse in the old part of Roquebrune, this cavernous - in the literal sense of the word - restaurant is atmospheric and cosy in the soft lighting. Most tables were for couples or small groups, but they were able to accommodate our group of... More

Good food and location but limited choice of dishes. The service was good too and the prices were reasonable. Wintery cosy indoor atmosphere.

It was nestled in the medieval part of the city. Quite a long walk, but nicely decorated, great service and typical French style cuisine. Try the mushroom and snail: it's great! Very naughty chocolate dessert, as well. We tried the deer with a sour sweet cranberry sauce, but next time I will probably go for the duck: it sounded mouthwatering.

The place itself is amazing, carved into rock. I thought it would be a bit claustrophobic but strangely although it was compact it felt open and airy. The dining experience was fantastic. There were five of us and we all tried something different and we were all trying each other's dishes and each one was unique and delicious. The owner... More

The setting was intimate and nice. Although not many tables, the atmosphere was very romantic. The service was excellent, very welcoming and helpful. The food was heavenly and prices not so high.

A little late in writing this review - a friend mentioned the restaurant and I said I had been there and would love to go back. An amazing frog and mushroom tart with the most beautiful pastry I have ever eaten in my entire life. Amazing wine, fantastic location and the owner a delight. A very long conversation about the...

Loved this place. You have to walk up and deep into the small town to get there, but that only works up your appetite. The setting, inside the rock walls of a chateau/castle, is very unique made all the more intimate in that there aren't many tables (need to book ahead in the summer months). The service was outstanding -... More

We returned to this restaurant this year having enjoyed a superb meal there in August 2014. We were not disappointed. Great atmosphere in the natural rock restaurant, with fantastic food, very attentive service and excellent value for money. To be highly recommended.
