Really great restaurant in old Vence. Tables in the square allow you to take in the atmosphere and watch the world go by. We had the duck & scallop pasta with a bottle of local wine for €45. Would recommend!

Visited this restaurant for lunch - excellent service and food. Would recommend the Foir Gras which is a home-made recipe and the Veal in Ginger and Lime sauce.

We stopped off in the old town of Vence as part of a trip around the area. The old centre is largely pedestrianised and has a good underground car park and lots of local restaurants. Le Piggeonnier was excellent, friendly and had good service. We just had a couple of salads and coffers but highly recommended.

Lovely place for dinner in Vence. Pretty good combination of good service, fine French cuisine and cosy location. No any woman could resist coffee gourmet.

The restaurant is set in a relaxing location near the centre of Vence. We sat outside because it was a beautiful evening. The waiters were very friendly. I need to have food that is gluten free and they were very pleased to help me choose what I could eat. The food was excellent and we chose the house wine which... More

The rain didn't help although the waiters knew how to maximise available cover. The food was at best average and quite tough. Tourist trap comes to mind.

We have had an exceptional meal here tonight. The quality of our meals was excellent as was the presentation of the dishes we ordered. Very friendly and attentive staff with an ability to not rush us through our meal was much appreciated. Very reasonably priced and situated in a pretty square in the old town of Vence.

One of several restaurants in the old town of Vence. Competent and prompt service. Food was above average and can recommend the venison. Good central location with a buzzy atmosphere for outdoor dining.
