Absolutely impeccable food, the local is very nice and quaint, the service was initially lazy (it was probably a moment messed up), but then it improved!

It is sometimes difficult to get into a restaurant in StPdV, so we got it early. Unlike most of the restaurants on the sunny evening side it feels like a proper restaurant. Food was really good and nice choice of wines. The waiter was a bit thrown by the arrival of a party of 8, and got confused ! But... More

I prefer to leave positive reviews on TripAdvisor as if an establishment makes a real effort and serves good food, they deserve a pat on the back. This is the first negative review I have given but based on our experience, the current feedback for Malabar is not accurate and prospective clients need to be aware of the negatives, particularly...

Came to Town on holiday since it's an amazing place to come and visit. It was very late in the afternoon and most places where closed. We came to this place since it was open and where nicely surprised. The foods was great but the attention was not all that good and the place is not kids friendly. Again the... More

We were searching for a place to have lunch that wasn't so over-crowded as the other restaurants in St-paul. We found Malabar which is situated in a very quiet area. We sat at tiny table outside with a marvellous panoramic view and had late lunch there. The food was very good and the prices are definitely reasonable. Would recommend!

Our craving for French cousine has been totally quenched by this restaurant on the ramparts of Saint Paul. We have succumbed to perfect foie gras, home made confit du canard and exquisitely flavored steak tartare. Service attentive, environment airy and the bill modest.

Nice place for lunch with great views. very small, two outside tables and two inside with view, several more inside. In the village but a bit away from the main shopping area. service was friendly, efficient and not rushed. assiette de tapas provençaux was very good. Good salade nicoise. good desserts.

Best if you can get one of the two small outdoor tables.Inside was too modern and not really the style of decor I find attractive.Outside, it's a lovely location, looking across to the walls of this beautiful village. Food was just ok, as average as we had in other restaurants in this area. We had the Assiette Provencal and the... More

Just a quick stop on the ramparts at St Paul de Vence for wine and cheese for lunch. Excellent quick service in this small restaurant. Worth an evening visit. No outside terrace or view but that does not matter as there is a friendly relaxed atmosphere inside.
