Always busy, always polite if fast service. But reasonable french food, with lots of atmosphere in the Valbonne square. Pizzas, pasta and fish if the day were all good. Steak not so.

Nice al fresco lunch dining spot in the center of the ever picturesque Valbonne. Great for families as the children can roam within the square with the other children and still remain within watching distance. Food was decent, salads were very large. In fact portions...More

I believe around10:30 pm. It's a lovely lively square in the evening and the French tend to eat late. I haven't however visited in October.
