“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

My wife and I are regular visitors to Ste Maxime as we have a house there. This gives us plenty of opportunities to sample ten local restaurants in the area. We found this one by accident one December and it is one our favourites in Ste Maxime.
The meats are cooked on a large rotisserie which is on view when you are in the small downstairs area.
So many of the restaurants in the area dish up tough steaks but not at Le Flambeaux where they serve some of the best steaks around.
Very friendly service and reasonable prices make this place well worth a visit.
Recommend that you book in the busier months.

“unimpressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

We had dinner there in early august with my family and I was left unimpressed. the starter was duo of saint jacques and gambas. It was defrosted and not very tasty, served in an unexciting creamy sauce. The main was cuisses de grenouilles, my first frogs legs and yet again it was non descript and tasteless. There are many better options in Sainte Maxime and I would not return to les flambeaux

“Great Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2011

A late review because I forgot to do it earlier. Smashing little restaurant in St.Maxime providing attention to detail and lovely food. When arrived when it opened, and it seemed quiet, but after an hour it was full of french locals and not tourists, which is always good sign!
Better to reserve if possible.

This is a genuine French restaurant that we definitively will visit again next time we are in St. Maxime.
