I had to respond having read the last review. My family and friends go regularly to this restaurant and the quality of the food and service is excellent. Although I am British, I regularly visit St Maxime and know the Management at this restaurant very well. I find it very difficult to believe that anyone would be rude to a guest. This restaurant holds a Michelin Bib Gourmand and has an excellent al la carte. Book a table you will not be disappointed

Booked a table for lunch at 1:30pm a couple of days ahead. Telephoned them from mobile at 1:20pm when in Gassin to ask how to find them (they are a little way out of town and we suspected that we were on the wrong road.) Manageress said that she had telephoned us at 1:00pm to try to confirm our booking but had been unable to reach us (unsurprising as we had left our landline number and we were in fact on the road at the time!) and so she had presumed that we were not turning up (why would you presume this?) and that unless we arrived in the next five minutes she would close the kitchen. Slightly startled we discussed in the car whether we should carry on with the endeavour, but as we actually turned out to be on the right road, we arrived at 1:35pm, flustered but rather pleased with ourselves for getting there so speedily.
However, the rather flustered manageress (?), perhaps having a difficult day, said that we were indeed too late for lunch. The restaurant looked to be about half full. Staff appeared to be working in the kitchen. Inexplicable French absurdity. As a result we sadly can not comment on food quality. View looked good. Slightly "older" lunchers. Menu had looked appetising. Diabolically rude (in both French and English). When we pointed out that it had been at her request that we had booked for 1:30pm she told us that we were lying. Basil Fawlty has died, turned French and gone to St Tropez. Quite, quite absurd. This manageress should retrain and join the Moscow Subway or something where her customer service talents would be appreciated.
We went up the hill back to Gassin and had a lovely meal with delightful service at the Pescadou. I recommend that you do the same.

Having pèserez Bouillabaisse few days before a family dinner,it was absolutely perfect.Food quality was excellent and somewhat difficult to imagine outside of the standard St Tropez environment .
Result is we are going back in a few days to experiment others food avenues.

We went to this restaurant for a wedding of our friends. As soon as we entered, we were greeted by the welcoming staff. The view on the bay of Saint-Tropez was amazing at this restaurant. We all got tables outside on the spacious terrace. The tables were nice decorated, with enough shade to enjoy a pleasant lunch. All meals we had were amazing with typical french touch as we like it! Very cosy and recommendable! Enjoy!
