Visited here with some friends who live in the local area. It was their recommendation and it was warranted. WOW is simply a word you can use to describe the entire experience. Front of house Madame is a total professional and it shows that she takes a great deal of pride in the restaurant. Service standards were very impressive, The... More

We were warmly welcomed by the chef's wife. He was cooking and also greeted us from his open kitchen. The menu was brought to us promptly as was the wine list. We were given two amuse bouche. We had ordered the crab course to be followed by the daurade and ordered a Chassangne Montrachet which was a delight. All courses... More

Every mouthful was a treat. Taste, fragrance, colour, surprising marriage of flavours all with superb service. Small place with husband chef and wife waiting at table. They don't want restaurant to be over full as they can't focus the way they want to. Attentive and friendly service. Not cheap but worth every penny (€). We've paid as much elsewhere and... More

This tiny restaurant is like the front room of a private home, an impression increased by the staff - husband (cooking) and wife (doing everything else). The food is beautifully presented and lovingly described and served. But it's very like Valbonne itself; more interested in style than substance. Ingredients fresh, varied (too varied) and delicious but far too many. Perfectly... More

It was a true feast having dinner here! So many different tastes, colors and products combined in these lovely dishes. The Chef and his wife Monsieur et Madame Chambaud made this evening into an unforgettable one and was a lovely way to have spent our 25th wedding anniversary! In French they say "chapeau"

Only in France will you find a restaurant like Lou Cigalon. The sheer range of ingredients used by Chef Thierry Chambaud is astonishing. He takes you on a magical mystery tour of the your taste buds. His passion for food shines bright in the charming, ancient and romantic restaurant. They restrict the number of covers so you must book ahead.... More

Unbelievable food and even better service. A woman handles all the service and she is absolutely fantastic. You can tell she genuinely cares that you have a wonderful experience. It is run by what appears to be a married couple making this eating experience perfect as they consistently had impeccable timing from start to finish of our 7 course meal.... More

We dined as a party of six during summer 2014 and opted for the taster menu ...Fabulous ! This is a small restaurant with a tiny kitchen and our party could not believe the food that was prepared in such a small space. Serious French food , friendly family staff made for a lovely evening.
