“Very slow service and average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

There are plenty of good restaurants in Le Lavandou unfortunately this is no longer one of them.
We have eaten at the Favouille every year for the past 9 years. This year things have changed for the worse. The food has always been average to good but now if to even class it as average is difficult.
The food is not the worst aspect, this is the pathetically slow service and even worse not all the ordered meals ( from the set menu) arrived at the same time!
We came very close to walking out as after one hour our starters hadn't appeared
The Quality of the food has gone down and there is very little customer service.
Shame it used to good. We are very disappointed.
Try the Auberge Provencal, Au Vieux Port, Le 5 Sens or The Lodge for real quality and value.

“A touch of authenticity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

This is a well located place to eat downtown Lavandou on a walking pass way. Next to a typical Provence style village place. The food is fresh and tasty. Fresh grilled fishes, vegetables from a local organic farm. The chief Olivier Orlando travels around the world to add worldwide spice perfumes combined with the traditional way of his father retired chief Gui , they offer a large range of local delicious wines. The service is kind and helpful. The ambiance is is joy full . Good jazzy Music bands perform in live some evenings for a romantic touch. Reservation recommended

“Good food, average service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

Typica provencal cousine, their men is good value, but they probably have too many tables for the waiters they have and we ended up waiting for ages to be served. In particualr comapred to the table next to ours, which sat down 30 seconds before us and left ages before us

Not that we complain: the location is great (lush, green outside dining area) and we had not much else to do, it would have just been nice to have some extra care

“Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

Had dinner here twice in June 2012. Seating is al fresco at the top of the small pedestrianised square. On some nights they have live music to entertain.
Good food, reasonable number of choices on the menu, and cheerful staff.

“Nice location, decent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2012

Stopped here for lunch while passing through town and ate outside. We opted for lunch salads and split a 50 cl bottle of Chateau de Bregancon white. My wife had a salad of very fresh greens topped with a whitefish called “rouget” which I guessed to be something like an orange roughy or some other light white fish, a very large prawn and some shellfish meat that tasted like lobster though the white dots on the shell were a dead giveaway it didn’t come from Maine (the best place for lobster). I stuck with the traditional salad nicoise, and these folks do a very nice job with the classic presentation. The greens and all the other ingredients in both salads were of very good quality and very fresh. The accompanying baguette was wonderful. The wine was excellent, the sun was shining and we were on the Mediterranean coast of France. Oh, I got sidetracked there. Le Lavandou is a cute little town and if you are in town, La Favouille is a nice place to eat. If you’ve found this review helpful, please click the link below.
