We returned to Lou Cigalon in Valbonne and will always visit when in the area. Food very special with set menu but flexible if customers are allergic/intolerable to some ingredients. Our first course was a soft boiled egg with truffles and sauce with mushrooms. One of our party is intolerant of mushrooms & substitutions were made...so fine in both preparations. The hostess is a delight and we dearly will await our next trip to this restaurant as one of our favorites!! Make reservations and note the restaurant is air conditioned which is especially important this summer.

Beyond our expectations we were absolutely positively surprised.
Starting from the very warm welcome over the great selection of wines through the extremely creative dishes, always made to the point, we had an evening and dining experience which we only got to know in restaurants that have at least one michelin star. According to our experience this is the best place to go for an evening dinner when you are around Opio/Valbonne. Not in any other location in the area you will receive this quality for such an adequate price. Unfortunately we have to leave Valbonne. Otherwise we would come back tomorrow. Please make sure to reserve a table by phone or email in advance.

I often use tripadvisor to search for restaurants but have very rarely left a review myself. However Lou Cigalon was such a lovely experience that I left feeling inspired to do so. Every part of our meal was excellent, truly inspirational especially considering the chef is on his own the kitchen. His wife covers front of house and delivered the kind of service that was perfect and from our experience quite rare in the south of France. The two of them clearly love what they do and it is apparent from when you first step into the restaurant until you leave. Exceptional! We will be back.

We fortunately found Lou Cigalon on trip advisor and what a amazing experience it was. The husband and wife team created one of the finest meals that you could wish for in a very nice setting. The menu was excellent and the combination of ingredients and flavours along with true French presentation made it an unforgettable experience. Their service was very friendly and we understood from our conversation that this was a love of theirs not a job. It truly shows, magnificent. Thankyou for such an amazing evening.

Lou Cigalon is a masterpiece. My wife and I spend more than 3 hours with the masterchef and his brilliant waiter yesterday and the food was as close to perfect as it can get. The taste, in many way different from "mainroad" left a very lasting impression. This is certaily a place that we will come back to - again and again. Yesterday we had (almost) the full chef menu, next time we will try out the "standard" - which also is great. We went for the local wine - which we belive one shall do - being in Provence.
