Beautiful little place, food delicious.
The menus are amazing value for money,(all 3 of us went for the menu at 35€) and each dish was flavorsome and interesting, the goats cheese marinated in olive oil and juniper berries was lovely.
Homemade foie gras and smoked duck was devine, the feuilletté de ris de veau was also very good considering I don't normally like this!
The duo of sole with langoustine sauce was absolutely delicious served with flavorsome wild rice (think it was cooked in bouillon so wasn't at all dry).
Now the desserts are to die for, that was the most difficult decision as they all sounded amazing in the end we opted for a warm mango tart, le vacharin au fraises (meringue,strawberry gazpacho, chantilly and popping candy) and I took a millefeuille of crepes dentelles maison with coffee ice cream and amaretto flavoured mascarpone served with a shot of amaretto..or something along those lines... Heaven!

It was absolutely wonderful ! They gave us an excellent last diner before to go back home (UK) ! Everything from the starter to the dessert was delightful... And for nearly half the price you can pay around there ! :D

Definitively one of our best souvenir..!!!

Not a place most tourists will find and that's a real shame as it's a great example of traditional French cuisine in a great setting and with reasonable prices.

Located in the old walled city of Grasse it's a short distance from the parfumeries that tourists both French and international love to visit. It's best to park at one of the three nearby parking lots and walk through the windy narrow streets to this restaurant tucked away in the former store rooms of a building. There are the amazing arched brick and stone ceilings and there is a nice cover patio in front perfect for relaxing and enjoy the Cote d'Azur weather. It's the kind of place Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware go to get inspiration. Very Provinciale.

Specializing in cuisine traditionalle there is a nice selection of a la carte starters, mains and desserts as well as two 3 course prix fixe menu for 36 and 26 euro both with many choice for each course. The portions are larger than at most restaurants in France. There are equal selections with seafood and meat and even vegetarian main dishes, not always something easy to find in France. The starter were huge with my salad being loaded with lardons as well a cured duck and the warm goat cheese salad the French spouse was just the way it should be she said and since she grew up in Grasse I'll take her word for it. The mains were equally good with a lamb confit cooked en papillote in filo dough wrapping, served with potatoes gratin and a celery root and parsnip root mash. The Spouse had a more regional dish which is a seafood stuffed with fish in a tomato broth, it was served with rice and the parnip and celery root mash. The dessert were huge and tasty. One was chocolate mousse cake with a base of Genoise layer with super light but still rich and chocolatey cake with more creme on top and served with a cup of warm chocolate sauce to pour over it. The Spouse's lemon crepe was full of tangy lemon curd and served with a shot of kir.

The place is filled with locals wanting an upscale but comfortable meal. There is a lunch time prix fixe for 13 euro. The dinner menu ranges from 6 to 20 euros per plate and has to the two prix fixe.

It's rare to find a place that ticks all the right boxes regarding food quality, value for money, setting and decor, yet this exquisite restaurant ticks them all. Hidden away in a narrow street of the old town of Grasse, the restaurant is installed in a former monastery of vaulted arches and dry-stone walls accompanied with impeccable decoration from a couple with obvious interior design talents.
Eaten here several times and on each occasion the food and service as well as the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff has always been of the highest quality.
It might be difficult to find for some, but if you persevere, you will be rewarded. It's about ten to fifteen minutes on foot from the station, so you can drink the excellent wine without having to worry about driving back later. If you're by car, you can leave the vehicle in the Town Hall parking lot five minutes away. If you happen to be there when the fleurs de lys are out, you will be doubly enthralled.
Difficult to find hidden jewels on the Riviera, but this is one of them.
