“disappointing,”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

The Fabulous location has allowed the service and food to slacken, we live locally and found the attitude to be overwhelming, clearly they are surviving on tourists who have no opportunity to return

“Great Terrace, Very good food for this price”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Great terrace (though only a few tables). The cooking is getting better each year here, and the current chef is on top form. You would getter better food at some of the Michelin restaurants on the coast, but not a this price. The service is friendly, but a trifle slow (especially the wine waiter).

“Nice lunch overlooking the Mediterranean sea”
Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

We chose to have lunch today at this restaurant as we were walking by, because we liked it's location; looking out at the sea from above the coastal road. The view of the cars parked underneath and in front is not ideal, but the expanse of sea view beyond more than compensates.

Although we didn't have a booking the waitress welcomed us and found us a table. We ate indoors as there were no places left at the terrace under the shade. But still when you are indoors, at one of the tables close to the window, it feels you have the best of both worlds: cooler, with good views from the open, big windows.

The service was very polite and efficient, and I even got a low stool for my handbag! I had never been offered one of these before! It took a while at first to bring us our menus, but once we ordered the service was timely. There was a lunch offer of a three course meal for €34 pp which was a good offer for this type of restaurant, albeit maybe a bit pricey for lunch. The choices on the menu were good, and the combinations intriguing. I ordered a goats cheese foam that arrived in a pot and it was very fresh and delicious. I had stuffed squid for main, which was a bit heavier than expected, but then again I had to remind myself I am in France! And the chocolate dessert I had was nice, but on the very sweet side. My husband had some very nice lobster ravioli which was oozing with flavour. All dishes were presented very elegantly.

The tables are set formally with tableclothes, etc and the decoration is classic, done tastefully.

All in all we had a very nice lunch!

“Beautiful spot on the Mediterranean”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This restaurant has a great view of the Mediterranean and the yachts docked out in the harbor. We made a reservation shortly after arriving for a walk about in Antibes, since we wanted a table on the patio. When we arrived for lunch about 2 hours later, the table was set and we were seated right away. This is not an inexpensive place, but they do have a nice menu of the day. We both thought the service and food were outstanding and of course, there is the view.

“We didn't get served at all”
Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

Can't write about the food as didn't get a chance to find out. We were seated then didn't get any menus or service at all. After 10 mins asked for a menu. Were told "of course" then no one came for another 5 mins. We decided they didn't want our custom and left.
