“Worth hunting out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

While the main square in Valbonne in the evening is buzzy and full of life with a couple of good restaurants it can also be a little bit like eating in a school playground with several distractions for children as they roar round the place. This is in a side street. Valerie has recently taken over and everything works - from the food to the ambiance. We loved it. And how they mange to keep up this level of cooking and service with only one front of house and two in the kitchen is beyond me.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

This restaurant is certainly worth a visit. It is in a quiet side street a short walk from the main square. The food and service were very good indeed. Thank you.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

the restaurant is situated in the old village street, really typical from south of france.
you can choose either from the menu or select one of two set menu.
there is average selection of french dishes: foie gras, fish, scallops etc..
we spent a nice time the service was good.

“Excellent meal, welcoming atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

You will not be disappointed. Madame Valerie was lovely and welcoming, serving complimentary champagne and olives when we sat down. Soups au poissons light and delicious, rabbit in mustard sauce bright and flavorful. Excellent value with the menu at 28 Euros. Need a rez in summer.

“Outstanding classic French food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

We came here on a busy market Friday and found this little oasis. Mme Valerie is charming, friendly & so hard working. The food was so great we came again the following day. Don't miss this little gem, sit outside, it's shady with a cool gentle breeze - Jeff & Deborah
