“Not bad”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Great atmosphere, pleasant surroundings, good prawns. Nothing to rave about but it was good for a midweek girls night out.

“Yuk! Will surely make you sick”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Horrilble. The shrimp simply have an amazing amount of poop in them. Poop all over the plate. Made my date want to throw up. Disgusting. Dirty place with very lousy food. However, the price is not high. Yuk

“Great food (for those who like hardcore prawn)”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

The menu at Jimmys provided what was expected from the name, Lots of dishes with a helping of Killer Prawns.

There are prawns on their own, curried prawns and mixtures of meats (steak, chicken, liver) which come with shell on, barbecued prawns and rice, fries etc.

I particular recommend the Lyonaise Salad to start (lettuce, bacon, poached egg and anchovies) and the Mozambique Main meal which came with Piri-piri chicken livers, rice, chicken and the obligatory prawns.

With a glass (or bottle more like) of the local rose wine and a Grappa to finish off, it was an excellent place to take in the summer sunshine.

Our team at Jimmy's Killer Prawns thank you for your comments. We strive to give the best prawns together with good friendly service. Yes, their are prawns on their own, prawns in curry, hot prawns, cold ones, and prawns of different sizes. We also have a few dishes without prawns, such as the salad you mentioned. 'Jimmy's Ribs is a popular amongst those non prawn eaters. Our 'Formule du Midi' includes one dish of prawns and an alternative for those who prefer to not eat shellfish.

We are happy that you spent a pleasant summer day in Valbonne and hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back for another plate of Killer Prawns.

“a good place to have a quick lunch”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Of course the prawns are super and in the summer it is like a garden party feeling. Lots of families with kids as they have a kind of playground.

Thank you for your comments on the Trip Advisor site. We do try to give speedy service to clients at lunch time as many of our guests need to get back to work and so we appreciate knowing that we are succeeding in giving a 'quick lunch' The bouncy castle is indeed a great source of joy to parents and children as mom and dad can enjoy their meal whilst the kiddies amuse themselves after having had their meal. We always serve the children first however if we are told to serve all plates at the same time, we will happily do so.

“Food and Service - excellent.”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

From the perfectly cooked salmon, calamari, prawns and ribs to the excellent and friendly service we couldn't recommend this restaurant enough. We think this is the first meal where everyone loved their food, the children got to enter a colouring in competition (to be drawn in April 2012) and hubby got to practice his emerging French on very patient and delightful staff. We loved it and will be back again - very soon.
