I got to do a cooking class around 2 weeks ago. I would like to point out the chef did not respect any of the compulsory sanitary measures amidst this pandemic. No one wore a mask in the kitchen, he did not hesitate to use...his hands while baking to taste the dough. This class also happening an hour late, we got to wear an apron.. simply to watch! Maybe for 70€ per person, they could have told us we would not actually do anything. The class was extremely disorganized, we had a little corner on the kitchen to watch, many ingredients were missing so the chef replaced them with other ingredients. I was expecting something way more organized. But the non-respect of the sanitary measures was definitely the cherry on top! Not to mention the only person who wore it was the server, which really made me think they absolutely do not care about it but just want to pretend they do care about people's safety. We tasted the cakes afterward, honestly not impressed.More

We enjoyed a wonderful evening with friends recently at this lovely restaurant with a beautiful view of Saint Paul de Vence. The menu 'suprise' is well worth it, each dish more delicious than the last. the service was excellent, very professional and friendly at the...same time, a great balance. The only thing we did not like too much was the rather inelegant way of proposing champagne as an aperitif, leaving little option for anything else. A great location for a treat however.More

The restaurant has a beautiful terrace overlooking St Paul de Vence and we had a very agreeable dinner. I wouldn't stay the quality was absolutely top, despite the Michelin one star, but certainly very good. Service was a little slow (and I don't expect it...too rapid, I'm not American!) but very charming. A good evening if not quite perfect.More

We stayed 2 nights at the Hotel so we could enjoy Alain Llorca's cuisine. Everything was excellent, also the wines and the view from the terrace of St.Paul de Vence. We would Visit again anytime and recommend both restaurant and hotel.

We enjoyed the most wonderful evening at Alain Lorca for my brother’s birthday. Everything was perfect, from the friendly welcome, exceptional service, incredible food, and that view... a fascinating menu with dishes created from the best local ingredients. Very good wine list with options at...all price points. A totally relaxed atmosphere which only added to the experience. A truly memorable meal and highly recommended. Looking forward to our next visit!More

Nice location with a priceless view. Food is good and the quality of service as well. It is rather pricey but still worth the money. The veal filet was the best I ever had.

This restaurant seems at first like an odd place to find such a fine dining experience. But, the view from the back terrace is wonderful which immediately puts you in a fine mood. The food, the service and the atmosphere are all first class. This...is a restaurant I can highly recommend to anyone in the area. It's worth the trip.More

We actually visited Alain Llorca as a tour, from our Crystal cruise ship, as an opportunity to cook with a Michelin Chef. I was hoping it would be a once in a life time experience to be in the kitchen of Michelin Star Chef Alain...Llorca seeing as I am an at home cook from Colorado, USA. I am going to say right out of the gate..... it was everything and so much more from the moment we arrived! Virginie, Alain's wife, runs the reception and manages the hotel, she was a delight, lovely and so welcoming. While Jean-Michel, Alain's brother, is an amazing master of pastries and very pleasant. I'm in love with Patrick, sommelier, so kind and knowledgable, not to mention patient with a new wine connoisseur. We were accompanied in the kitchen by the lovely chef Gabriella, where we hands on cooked our own lunch. We were able to watch the other spectacular kitchen staff in action as they prepared the kitchen for the day and cooked for their other customers. Alain Llorca is a food genius, kind and welcoming to the ruckus we caused in his astonishing kitchen. Alain thank you for this opportunity and for your hospitality. This kitchen is quaint, fast paced, incredibly clean and full of intoxicating cuisine. Please do not cheat your tastebuds! If you are near, Restaurant Alain Llorca is a must stop to savor the food, enjoy wine and soak in the beautiful view. On my next visit I will be spend the night.More
