Nice enough place, but just far too stuffy and formal for the area, in the middle of nowhere in the middle of South of France's answer to Silicon Valley. All the clichés, flower arrangements all over the place, fancy tablecloths and napkins and koi carp in the tinkling pond. Food was well presented and well cooked, good menu and wine... More

We have had lunch here twice in the past week with friends. The menus are varied in choice and in price: €21.90 for a simple 2 course lunch up to €49.50 for a menu with lobster, fillet steaks, seabass in salt or grilled etc. etc. In between there are menus of €31.50 and €42.00. We ate from the €42 one... More

Had dinner here with friends. Food good esp. the fish soup with all the trimmings. It's not five star and does not pretend to be. Staff friendly and sitting on the terrace is a lovely way to spend an evening. Will definitely return.

We dine at this this restaurant on our annual visits to Valbonne. Friendly staff and fine food. Worth the short drive out of Valbonne Village.

I enjoyed our previous visit, so I was looking forward to eating there with friends. We dined early, but, probably owing to the fuel strikes, the place was virtually empty, which may have added to our disappointment as there was no ambience. The staff were very polite and efficient, but all I could remember was that the steak was tough,... More

We had a great dinner with fois gras as starter and bouillabaisse and truffle ravioli for main course. Very good taste and nice wines. Unfortunately, day after we were both sick and had diarrea. When we called to tell them, they were not interrested and didn't even say sorry. Bad service!!

I can not fault this restaurant from Start to finish. The courtyard setting is beautiful Which leads you in to the formal dining room with big roaring natural fire ( when cold enough to light ) The service is exceptional as well as the food but the star of the show is the Porto sauce ! Absolutely delicious with a... More

We went here for a Business dinner with several colleagues. There was a menu to choose from. All people in the group had nice dishes with good amount of food and the most important, very tasty. I would really advice to come here. While we were there also some couples came in for dinner.

This is a lovely restaurant in a great setting but the service is really not good and unfortunately this means that the food (which is very good) is eclipsed by the bad service experience. I went in December at lunchtime, for a business lunch, and not only was the service terribly terribly slow (despite just having the simple lunch formula)... More
