We rented a room at Les Ombrelles a couple of nights before we were going back to Norway. The first couple of days we tried some other restaurants in town, but the last day we decided to try the food at the place we were staying. Apperently this was a great choice. The food was great, the atmosphere was great, and the man who owned the place, who took orders, served and cooked all by himself, is one of the friendliest people we met on our journey. While we were waiting for the food, he kept on serving us wine and liquior on the house. To make it even better he put on Pink Floyd while serving the dessert. This restaurant is absolutely worth wisiting if you are in Hyeres. A real experince!

We have been returning to lodge and dine at Axel's 'Les Ombrelles' every year since Summer of 2009. No better value can be found in France. Axel manages a professional yet extremely personal and friendly service. His 5 star food is prepared, presented and provided at a pace and tempo to create the most intimate and romantic of dinning experiences that is unmatched. In addition the abundant friendly atmoshere creates a social melting pot and lively experiences.

Firstly, make sure you speak in person to Axel when you make a reservation. If the weather is good, ask for the terrace dining area which is enchanting and intimate. It was an unusual experience for us as Axel is a one-man-show; he cooks, serves and entertains throughout, which can mean that there are long waits between courses. However, if you're not in a hurry and you're in good company it adds to the experience. Axel was very generous and he treated us to various extras, e.g. organic wine, schnaps. He was very attentive. As we were the last to leave he tailored the music for us and played "The good, the bad and the ugly", by the GB Ukelele orchestra. We will definitely be going back.

As a family we have been coming to the restaurant since it opened 13 years ago.
From day one we have enjoyed both his company and his food. Although the service is a bit slow, no one minds as he makes up for it in banter.
We would highly recommend an evening chez axel
His rooms are charming providing all that is needed for an affordable stay.
A must visit for anyone in the area
Tom, Enid and family :)
