Had dinner here with my son and a good friend of mine and his two lads. Have been here frequently in the past and found it good again this time. Like most of the south of France it seems to have gone up in price over the last few years but food is good and the set menus are probably the best option though if you are not a big fish eater the options are a bit limited.

I had the ribs and they were excellent. The soup starter was ok but nothing special. The boys steaks were good but not as good as you would get at home. My friends scallops were very good he said but the veal was a bit too thick.

Overall still one of better options in a place where the food offerings are a bit disappointing

But great creative menu. Makes a change from more of the same at almost all the other restaurants in the village. Fajitas are great. Also healthy portions that come with three to four side dishes thrown in. Great value for money. Strange tohave a name like La Mandarine without any Chinese dishes - not even noodles.

My wife and I stayed in Mandelieu La Napoule in April and at a time when parking was available!. Obviously a little out of the main season but the restaurant was full on both nights we ate there, Sunday and Monday. Fortunately we had booked a table for the first night after checking out the other restaurants in the vicinity - all overpriced.
La Mandeline is run by a Dutch guy. Not many tables but a friendly quirky atmosphere with plenty of character, and good background music. The one waitress serving was exceptional. The main menu at €25.50 represented good value and the house wine was more than acceptable.The soupe de poissons was well presented with the cheese/croutons.
We choose to eat there on our second night in the village for all the reasons above, most unusual for us as we always like to try somewhere different.

We visit La Napoule every six weeks and always go to La Manderine at least once per visit. GREAT food, try the Scottish Black Angus Fillet (special) direect from the
Netherlands! Host has a dry sense of humour, great fun.. Will be back next week.
