We spent a month in Valbonne this summer and Cafe des Arcades was recommended to us by several of the locals we met. Valbonne is a beautiful and atmospheric old town with narrow streets and picturesque houses. In the centre is a little square surrounded by arched arcades. There are three places to eat here, with tables outside, but Cafe... More

Come here many times and have never been disappointed. Good food, friendly service and an unbeatable ambiance in the middle of the medieval center of gorgeous Valbonne. What else could you wish for? This is probably one of the best experiences you can have on the Cote d'Azur.

After we had finished eating the children took their shooters and we're having a fun time in the square beside us. We having a chat when the waiter suddenly told us to get up and move table because he had... More

We had a celebratory meal with friends, there was 17 of us and the food could not be faulted and the Service was very good - also the prime setting in the square in Valbonne surrounded by beautiful buildings. 3 of even returned the next night to sample another choice on the menu!

I haven't eaten here in a long time - for no reason other than trying out new places - but I arranged to have lunch on Thursday with a friend and was so pleasantly surprised. Really great food and nice busy buzz.

We went to Valbonne in the hope we would find somewhere relatively easily for the two of us on a Tuesday evening - but in the school summer holidays this proved more difficult thank we thought. The food here was good - the salmon tartare (entrée) was brilliant and the mains were also good. Due to the busy-ness of the... More

In the very beautiful town of Valbonne, this restaurant offers great service, delicious food, and deserts. What surprised me most was the speed, we were served 10 minutes after our order and the food was excellent. We tried the fillet du beouf with morilles, the grilled fish, tarts framboise, and profiteroles. All excellent. Visit Valbonne !

This restaurant is always busy for a reason. It has great food variety with great taste. Service isn't fabulous but food comes quickly and the staff are friendly. Great for kids too.
