Intimate, charming and unique. Impressive what this couple magically creates. Above gastronomique quality with a twist of personal feel. Highly recommended hidden gem.

We stayed overnight outside of Valbonne on our way back to France from Italy. It was around our 25th wedding anniversary and Lou Cigalon seemed like a good place to celebrate. We were not disappointed in any way. It seemed to be Michelin star quality, including the atmosphere--very quiet and calm. The food was excellent and presented beautifully. The owner... More

We stumbled on this wonderful, small and intimate restaurant in Valbonne by chance. The name was intriguing - Lou Cigalon. The menu was focused, the choices were seasonal. The food was utterly superb, and served with total charm and grace by the wife of the wonderful chef, who teaches at a local school during the day. We just loved the... More

Thankfully we booked this restaurant a couple of weeks before. The minute you walk in and see the cheerful faces of Chef Thierry Chambaud and his charming wife Anne-Lise, you know you are in for a delightful evening. We chose the Menu Sensation Market. which consisted of five sublime courses along with several additions to the menu- a couple of... More

We had dinner 3 times at Lou Cigalon with friends. All times the special dishes were extraordinarily good, well presented and perfect in balance as for sweet,sour, bitter and spicyness. You willhave to wait a bit for your plates, as the chef is doing everything by himself, so staff but his wife doing the service. Nice quiet place tohave a... More

If you want a theatrical experience rather than a culinary one, this restaurant is for you. Despite the beautiful decor and attentive service, there are many flaws which marked our dining experience extremely disappointing. Most dishes (and there are unfortunately very few to chose from) combine ingredients that in our minds, just don't work. Moreover, far too many ingredients are... More

The food was truly incredible and you could taste that it was prepared with high quality ingredients and love. The service was excellent too, with the hostess explaining each dish and taking her time with the guests. It's not too expensive given the quality of the food. Would definitely recommend for someone looking for an experience and not just to... More
