I think the secret of eating out in Valbonne is to search out the places off the main square.

A lovely evening and a wonderful meal. Every course was excellent and Valerie was very warm and attentive. I highly recommend you go but make sure you book in advance because the restaurant is very popular.

Visited on Friday evening with friends. You need to reserve a table with Valerie. She is the most hospitable lady we have met and as always the service she provides is second to none. Champagne on arrival and nibbles and as always amazing food- steak, tomato tart, fois gras, scallops, veal to name but a few of the wonderful dishes.... More

Every year we visit this restaurant. Everything we had here was great. The salads, main meals, little snacks you get while you are waiting. I would recommend to everybody.

We have been coming in here for years now and since the new proprietor took over a couple of years ago it has gone from strength to strength, excellent food, great choice and a warm ambience inside. Excellent service too.

It was lovely being made so welcome again by Valerie. As usual, the whole experience was superb. I started with the Salade Lyonnaise which was generous and delicious. The "Pave de Boeuf" with peppercorns sauce was tender and full of flavour. After an excellent cheese course the strawberries and ice cream with cognac provided a fine conclusion. Ten out of... More
