“Great Brunch Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Just before you pass by "Just Before" you should give it a try. It's Ice Cream shop look belies the great food and fun owners. You can get breakfast, brunch, lunch and a light dinner at Just Before, however, the name says it all. Have a afternoon, beer or cocktail, Marilyn had a Kir, check the appetizer menu, very down to earth, and if it's an ice cream sundae you're looking for you found the place. You can sit inside or outside. We had a late breakfast another day. My omelet was wonderful, the French fries crisp and hot. When Marilyn asked the owner, "How do you ask for the bill in French?", his reply was, "The bill." He brought it and added, "Le addition." with a very large smile. Fun, very reasonable and very comfortable, a great choice Just Before anything else you plan.

“Perfect little spot on the Marina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Just Before is lovely. It is a little Marina adjacent cafe with a wonderful, happy owner who remembers his customers and has a great attitude. I did not eat here so I cannot speak to the food but I went for wine and cocktails a few times. The prices are fairly reasonable and the drinks are great. The tropical cocktails are artfully made and you can see the attention to detail in everything they do. I hope to visit again soon. The only thing I would change is to offer wifi for the customers but in a way that is a good thing because it made me just relax and enjoy the gorgeous Marina Baie des Anges, my drinks and friends.

“Live music, yummy crepes and great staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

I went to this restaurant on a Sunday evening for a drink and ending up having a delicious (but huge!) nutella crepe from their extensive dessert menu. There was a fantastic band playing live music which had lots of people dancing - including the waiter! Really pleased to have stumbled across such a lively, friendly restaurant. I will definitely be going back there this summer (live music Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays!). We were lucky to get a table so it may be wise to reserve!

“They are still going very strong!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

One of the greatest choises and the very best place for an excellent authentic beer in Provence! The best crepes in Provence! Most warm welcom by the most sweet couple of owners. The hamburgers are unbelievable and just top! The atmosphere is great with a large terras on the yacht habor. We love to drive one hour from our authentic B&B, Mas la Jaïna in the village of Bargemon to visit the most charming place in our region. See you very soon in Just before!!!

“"A peace of heaven"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

Just Before is for us the best we have in the region! We live in Provence for many years now and have a charming B&B, "Mas la Jaina" at about one hour drive from ville Loubet in Bargemon, Var. We find the location at the jacht habour, the nice terrace, the suburb friendly service and last but not least the enormous collection of best beers brewed in Europe is just ilke you are in heaven! The crepes (pancakes) are like you have never ever had them before! Coctails are out of this world! If you have diner nearby, just forget desert and have something at just before... Just before is easy to find underneed the famous wave-shaped buildings from the Villeneuve Loubet jacht habour. We see you there on the terrace!
