“The service is French, but so is the food”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

In my (20 years) experience, La Renaissance is at the top as quality/price ratio in Saint-Raphael. Not the best, but the best considering price, food and setting combined. The narratives I hear here from disappointed visitors resonate with things that can happen to you in almost any restaurant on the Riviera: I could tell you similar horror stories occurred to me in 2-star places in Cannes, Mougins, Nice. And yes, service can be occasionally... less than impeccable (as almost everywhere in France), but you will survive it. Pick from the fixed-price menus or from the fresh seafood counter, and you'll be happy, for little money.

“I wish we had not eaten there!”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

we were in St Raphaël on a Sunday and wanted to have lunch. Sadly I had not read the other reviews of this restaurant before walking in the door!!

First, it is not clean. A woman sitting next to us unfolded her napkin and it was clearly used! Almost every plate put in front of me had greasy finger marks on it from either the chef or the waiter. the service was terrible. Although it was Sunday lunchtime and there were few other restaurants open in St Raphaël because it was January, there were only two waiters to handle about 100 covers. We waited, and awited - for everything. when the food came it was not hot, and not wonderful. in fact it was downright awful.

The best thing that could happen to this place is to have the local health authorities close it.

“Don't have lunch/diner at Renaissance”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

We had a lunch January 2nd. On the outside the restaurant looks very attractive, but that is all the attraction. The serving people are rude, and have no interest for their guests. Te food was not impressive at all
