This spot is a short walk up the hill away from the water. It is very comfy inside, a small spot with a very nice atmosphere. The service was great and the food was good. Would for sure recommend. We went without a reso on a Thursday in off season, not sure if one would be required in the summer.

Apart from the delicious food and the friendly service which we have experienced on a number of visits, the wonderful thing for my wife and me is the helpful approach of the manager to my wife's need to follow a gluten free diet. Dining out can be stressful for her but at L'Ormeau, because of the obvious care taken to... More

We tried to find a restaurant on Saturday night without a reservation, and finally got a table in this restaurant. The food was just unbelievably good, wine list was ok. Service here is absolutely fantastic. I ordered a lobster salad, it was a little bit salty. Husband was excited about chocolate dessert. His dish - the beef with morels was... More

We were lucky on a busy Saturday night to get. table and have to say the overall experience as well as the food is exceptional. The owner and staff were extremely attentive, friendly and with good humour. We started with a bottle of white and red regional wines and the crab ceviche and lobster tartare. We then moved on to...

My husband and I are from Denmark and this is our third time to Sainte Maxime. Every time we visit Sainte Maxime, we visit L'Ormeau 2-3 times. This is without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Sainte Maxime. The food is excellent and the service is kind and efficient. Therefore we highly recommend this restaurant to everyone who...

This one is a cut above the rest and compares favourably with La Bicyclette and whereas La B is a bit on the funky side L'Ormeau is more laid back. The staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful and the food simply beautiful. We went for filet and was cooked to perfection in response to "medium" ( which in France often... More

We ate here last night - very hospitable and friendly owner - excellent value and beautifully presented set menu (28E). Comfortable outside terrace - we arrived in cycling clothes and owner not put off and not made to feel under dressed. Very varied a la Carte which we will try on another occasion when we are not so pressed for... More

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.
