“Impromptu stop for lunch”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We were only going to have a snack but were intrigued by the menu descriptions here and decided to stop. Three of us had salads, the other linguine bolognese. The meals were all very good, and the salads were huge!! Especially the exotic salad which was large enough for two! Meals served at other tables included fresh fish and seafood and everyone seemed to be eating happily. Too full to order deserts! Would most certainly return.

“The best place of Gassin”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The restaurant is located in the main place of Gassin. You could choose typical dishes of provence: Bouillabaisse (14€) and the famous "tarte tropezienne".
The children menu proposes original plates with day fish.

“My pick on the rampart.”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Wandering along the medieval rampart of Gassin, reading the menu boards of each of the restaurants which appear there every summer, is great fun but makes it difficult to choose between them. They are all side by side, all give more or lesser views out over the treed countryside below, all have canvas roof shading, and potted trees, or little vertical gardens, or flower vases. There is usually a gentle refreshing breeze, due to the height. My first decision
was for Le Vieux Gassin, at the far end of the rampart, because the menu had some interesting offerings. The food was very fresh, perfectly cooked, somewhat innovative, and served quickly. There may have been a new chef since last year. The staff were "just right", warm and chatty, efficient, and not overbearing. On later visits, I tried three of the other restaurants here but always went back to Le Vieux Gassin. Unlike some other reviewers, I did not feel rushed along by the staff, but I always went very early, at 6.30pm, because they do like to have a second sitting.

“Excellent staff and food.”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We have eaten here many times in the past although not for about 6 years.
Having read some of the reviews,that were mixed we thought we would try it again.
A great experience ,the staff were excellent and the food was(as before) superb.
If you order the profiteroles make sure you leave plenty of room,it's enough for 4!
Try the Bouillebasse,it's fantastic.
