Had been there twice and would always go again. Very nice atmosphere in Valbonne. The Pizza is quite large and thin. Very delicious. Nice to sit outside on the Place des Arcades and enjoy live with a good red wine or beer

This restaurant in the heart of Valbonne is the place to be. It is always crowded & the atmosphere is lively. Typical French fare & a good selectiorn of dishes. My friend & I had the bream with mash & topped with pesto. The desserts are delicious. Staff are friendly, service slick. We always go here once during our visit... 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.

Package sticker found in a salad. No apology, nor recognition of a hygiene issue. Location is nice, but go elsewhere.

great spot in the village square but so large now, the quality has dropped. Fine if you do not care what you eat!

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.
