Another restaurant with character, offering not the same food you find on the menus of all the restaurant on this busy street. Manager gives genuine suggestions to clients, like avoiding pasta if you are Italian... I would highly recommend it. Riccardo

This is a mid-range restaurant with good food and excellent service in the centre of Sainte Maxime. It is reasonably priced - meal for two with wine €100 and the food is original and different although based on Provencal.

Warm welcome by the owner. He personally take care of his customers. Very good cuisine, prepared by a super chef. The “Camenbert Chaud” as a starter is excellent. The main course “Rognon a la moutarde”(kidneys in a mustard sauce) is a specialty from the Chef. Super tasty. The wines are chosen by the owner and of impeccable quality. All this... More

It's refreshing to find a place where things match like in L'Ormeau. The owner is not only a good guitar player but a superb host with the right sense of humour and proud of his place. Starting with a fish, then very tender filet de boeuf and closing with a homemade desser from his new chief. Nothing to add -... More

Evening meal for 3, we dropped in early on a Saturday night and bagged the last table after wandering around looking at the surfeit of similar café & restaurant. The waiter was professional, he explained the menu in great detail in French, realising that I was struggling when we got to the technicalities of a cut of meat dropped into... More

We have visited sainte maxime many times and often visited L'Ormeau as the food is good and the owner and staff are very friendly. We were pleased to see a new menu this year which has a more french theme. What I like is the fact that to make a change to a dish is not a problem and they... More

Good food and nice ambience with friendly people. Recommended by our hotel. We've had 2 great meals and intend going again before returning to England. Hopefully we'll be back next year too.
