Lovely venue, tucked away down a side street in Biot, looking out over the valley. Waiter, Eric, welcomed me, settling me in with a sweet amuse bouche of fresh watermelon pieces and bruschettas with tepanade and aoli.
A nice asparagus salad was followed by lamb with wild mushrooms, veggie flan (light as a pillow - the best I've had in France), and frites. Yum! The menu came with 2 glasses of wine (a very nice red), and don't we all love cloth napkins?! The music was low jazz (just the thing for lunch). The views and breezes were lovely. Impeccable service beginning to end.
Great food. Great service. Great music. Great experience. Treat yourself in Biot!

Sadly, as we had previously had a lovely meal here (see below), we looked forward to a return visit. This time the food was bland and uninspiring, very much like many other restaurants in the area.
A shame, but we will not return.

Decided to give this restaurant a try based on the reviews.
Very disappointed that the reviews didn't match up to the reality!

I did appreciate before booking a table (not at all necessary as it was empty) there would be a limited choice of menu (reviews) but a €34 menu with no choice except for Red Mullet fish is poor. We were then given another €34 menu with pork as a main dish but we were told that this wasn't available until the next day (strange) The al la carte option also had two of the four main courses not available!

We decided that with this limited choice in a deserted restaurant we would seek another venue! There are some very good restaurants in Antibes but this shouldn't be considered one of them

A quiet May midweek evening and needing somewhere to eat we thought we would try somewhere different. We were treated exceeding well and the food was fabulous, we will return!

This little gem is tucked away off the main street in Biot. It is well worth seeking out. Nice decor overlooking the valley (we had a small terrace to ourselves). The menu @ €34 was very good value with tapenades to start and a small risotto between entree and main course was a nice bonus. The smoked salmon risotto was actually exquisite. Service was very considerate and the house wines good value. Strongly recommended.
