“Delicious food and absolutely wonderful service....Highly recommended”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

I'd highly recommend this restaurant at 9 rue Saint Jean. We were walking around the beautiful narrow streets in back of the main streets. Actually we were looking for another restaurant when we passed this one. The food on everyone's table looked so delicious so we decided to change plans and eat here instead.

They have some daily specials on a blackboard outside in chalk so you can see it. It's on a tiny side street but they have a board at the end of the corner as well. Just a few tables outside on this small sidewalk but it's a perfect place for lunch because it's totally shaded in between the buildings.

Some of these places have the brutally hot sun shining in on them and hard to truly enjoy lunch that way. They have some lunch specials for €20 each person and it included a wonderful Greek salad (delicious with excellent salad dressing), and an assortment of cooked meats and some pita bread and also had a small salad and french fries on the plate.

Absolutely delicious food and the waitress was very very friendly. I'm not sure if she was the owner or not but it seemed like it. These people take great pride in their place and the food was totally fresh and delicious.

I'd highly recommend this place to eat. They are also smart because they give a business card with the bill. One of the very few places I've seen this done in the French Riviera. It seems like the other places don't care if you come back or not. Not so here.

On the business card it says there is free parking at the Place Jean Jaures parking lot located at 83160 la Valette du Var.

I'm saving this card for my next trip to St. Tropez as I'd definitely eat here again.
