The food was delicious and the service was amazing. Much attention was given to details and everything was prepared by the Chef himself. From the entree, main course, dessert to the "mignardise" and caramels by the door. We loved it and will definitly go back next time we come to Valbonne.

I would also like to add that we took out 6 month old son and they did everything to make sure he was happy too!

This restaurant is a hidden gem of Valbonne. Together with Clos St Basil they are two best restaurants to visit in Mougins, Grass and Valbonne area. What is amazing neither one nor the other has a Michelin star. This Michelin people they are strange......
Loup Cigalon has a star with a previous owner but we never visited at that time. Now, the new owner who also teach young people in the culinary college in Cagnes sur Mer as I remember. He is alone at the kitchen and his wife is alone to serve a clients and they do it perfectly. Food is extremely good, service is warm, there are couple of sets and also a la carte menu. I recommend to take a bigger menu. it's not huge, portions are not big, and you will taste his main hits. Booking is a must. Not to be missed if you are in the area !!

Me and my husband went to Lou Cigalon for the first time last Thursday, but it will definitely not be the last. Both the food and the service was fantastic and we loved the atmosphere!
Not only was the food delicious - it was also innovative and the presentation beautiful. We found the 3 course menu to be very high quality for a good price and the service nice and personal.
Just go there - you will be happy!!

Big surprises come in little packages and this is what I will say about Lou Cigalon in Valbonne.
A small restaurant with a BIG heart and excellent service. There are not many tables so do reserve..in fact it is a must otherwise you will be disappointed.
Once the menu was handed to me ...I had my Pavlovian reaction and immediately started salivating. There are 2 Menus on offer: Menu Decouverte at 39€ with an either/or selection of mouthwatering suggestions and the Sensation du Marche at 68€ which we chose. We savoured the dishes that were beautifully presented...each dish had little "crumbs/seasonings " to one side to be "taste with your finger" and I did...each and every time she said we could: there was a dusting of cumin with the Lobster, sugared verveine with the refresher sorbet and ginger bread with the Camembert.
Fabulous French cuisine that is neither humble nor over exaggerated. Bring an appetite,sit back and enjoy LaDoucette Pouilly Fussee...you can thank me later!
Check out the website for the menus which they change every 2/3 months...I am so excited,because the change is imminent and so is our return to this enchanting little restaurant with the most charming hostess and chef.
What are you waiting for? Make a reservation for your next trip over.
