The Café des Arcades is the place to be when you are in Valbonne in the summer. The terrace is very sunny all day long and the savoury food is quickly served. Very international clientele (Northern Europe essentially) with kids having fun on the car-free"place des arcades".

We had been pre booked for some time and we were put in a sterile shed with no ambience and brightly lit that was freezing cold. The food was adequate but we were a party of friends that had looked forward to meeting up in a pleasant environment and were shoved in the annex which was soulless. No apologies or... More

You go to "Cafe des Arcades" to sit in the sun and for the cozy atmosphere, not for the food. The pizza is delicious, here its made thin and crispy. Att the end of October there are less tourists, but the restaurant with its large well located terrasse, is full when the sun is out. The French language is mixed... More

This restaurant is in one of the most delightful settings you could imagine, the main square of an old world French village one of four establishments situated there and surrounded by very interesting shops which are not expensive. We were four in our party and only ordered mains, it was too hot for a three course lunch . One of... More

We had a very nice family lunch with some tasty Rose on the terrace. The kids and I had pizzas which were excellent. My wife who chose the goat cheese salad was slightly disappointed - it was a bit dry and missing some dressing. The service is very good and friendly. Highly recommend this place.

Make an early reservation. It is full with french and foreigners leaving in the Mougins st Paul area. You get everything you can think of Cote d'Azur kitchen and atmosphere

Situated in the town square of Valabonne amongst other cafes this is a delightful place to sit and absorb the last remaining autumn sun rays from the sky. We just had cold drinks here but it was nice and relaxed. They also serve food but we didn't try any. Wifi available to keep the kids entertained. Very clean inside the... More

A relaxed yet vibrant setting in the market town of Valbonne. Packed restaurant and excellent service. The fresh roasted sardines were sublime accompanied by an excellent rosé. Couldn't fault the restaurant.
