“Possibly my favourite restaurant in the world?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

As a family, we have been lucky enough to have been visiting La Bastide for over 15 years, we have celebrated countless birthdays and other special occasions at our 'local' restaurant, and it never fails to disappoint.
The setting is wonderful, a beautifully landscaped garden overlooking the twinkling lights of the villages on the surrounding hills (this is more of a summer than a winter restaurant in my opinion), the service is attentive yet unobtrusive and the food nearly always takes my breath away. Their fish courses are to die for, and if their strawberry soup with olive oil ice cream is on the dessert menu, it is not to be missed! In addition, the wine list is full of local gems.
It is expensive, but worth every penny. With any luck, we will be coming back to eat here for many years to come.

Outstanding food, one of the best meals we have ever had. One small criticism - 2 gin and tonics ordered at the beginning of the meal, the glasses were cleared away but the Tonic bottles remained on the table the entire meal. Service was good but just missed being the experience we have had on previous visits.

Will we go back - absolutely, the food is just devine. Given 5 stars as it was only a small glitch.

We had the most lovely wine tasting at Jacques Chibois; it was everything that wine is meant to be about- good times, smooth flavours, letting the aroma take you on different adventures. The staff are spot on and the lieu are beautiful and the crowd is so pleasantly traditional and old school- delightful!

Communicating with 4-5 star hotels along Cote d'Azur is usually a good experience. The prices are high compared to most other places in Europe, but the receptionists are usually very friendly and helpful.

Our experience from reserving hotel room + dinner at La Bastide Saint-Antoine 14-15 February 2013 through Booking.com is an exception. Having reserved 3 months on beforehand, we were informed just before our stay that our dinner reservation had to be cancelled unless we paid 180 Euro per person for a Valentines Day dinner. One day before the stay, we had to cancel our hotel reservation and go back to Norway due to a private emergency situation. Not cancelling 2 days on beforehand, the agreement with Booking.com then allowed the hotel to take full payment for the hotel room (510 Euro), unless the stay could be postponed.

In similar situations, we have experienced before that good hotels do not always insist on full payment, to keep a good customer relationship. Hotel Bastide Saint-Antoine preferred to take full payment. They wished us welcome back at a later time, but I do not trust that they really meant it.

We spent 4 nights in this relais & chateaux and it was a great experience. We had a wonderful meal in the 3 Michelin stars restaurant. The room on the ground floor was nice and well decorated and overlooking the valley and the sea. Staff is helpful, warm and professional.
We arrived by plane in Nice and took a taxi to the hotel. Be careful with some taxi drivers which are not honest at all. We paid 150 euros instead of 70 euros !
We will certainly come back but with our own rental car !

My wife and I spent 7 nights at the hotel and made it headquarters for our visits around the Cote d'Azur. Wonderful staff, stunningly beautiful grounds and views, delicious food. Hard to find the first time and the road from Grasse down to the coast was more crowded than we expected. Still, we were able to easily visit from Monaco to St. Tropez on day trips. Must have car. Occasionally smoky air from nearby brush burning which is allowed throughout the Cote d'Azur (what a shame!) Never ate at the famous restaurant except breakfast.
