“Somewhat Disappointing”
Reviewed May 2, 2012 via mobile

We went to this restaurant after seeing it recommended and also after reading the menu that was outside. However once inside and seated the menu we received bore no relation to what had attracted us inside in the first place. Admittedly we looked a little touristy but all the other clients managed to get a somewhat more extensive menu than we received.

The food we ended up with was perfectly serviceable but watching other people have options that were not apparently available to us was not particularly enjoyable.

It ruined what could have been a lovely meal. I don't think we will be returning in a hurry!!

“Could have been so much better...”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Visited at lunchtime on 2nd May.

Good points - all freshly cooked, food was rather good, service adequate and the Bandol Rose (Domaine de Dumoy 2011) was very approachable.

Less good - we walked into the restaurant dressed as typical tourists, T shirt, cut offs etc and as a result we only offered a very basic menu. Stupidly we assumed that carte de dejeuner was the only option at lunchtime and only subsequently realised that the a la carte menu would have been available.

Frankly rather than assuming that "tourists" would only want a basic menu, had the staff offered the full menu then (a) we would have had a much better meal & (b) the restaurant would have had a significantly larger profit....

I would visit again but really disappointed that the staff assumed that we would only require the restricted menu....

“Magical romantic evening”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

On our last night in Antibes we went to this lovely place, the restaurant is located in the old city, near the market.
The interior décor brings to mind the restaurants in the little villages of Italy, the service is warm and welcoming.
The food was all we were looking for in a French restaurant, tasty, aesthetic and precise. We enjoyed every minuteץ
We had the 29 euro and the 38 euro menus, the bill, with wine, water and coffee totaled 100 euro - average Antibes prices.
I had one of the best fish soups I ever tasted, my date had the pate fois gras,
for the main course, I had the lamb chops and my date had scallops.
Great place, very good food, great experience.

“Delicious food again at La Forge”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Have just got back from a long weekend in Antibes with friends. We went Friday, saturday and sunday night for an evening meal at La Forge. The food was fantastic each evenim. We all tried different things each night and they were all delicious. Barbara and Jeff were great hosts as usual. We have had a fantastic time each night. Looking forward to going back in June 2012. It is definately the place to eat in Antibes.
