How lucky were we to be there while there is no stars granted to this great dining spot, the team of the restaurant is really trying their best. Service is outstanding, location is a bit remote -- about 40 min drive from Cannes, but the drive is a worthy one. When you leave A8 you drive through wonderful provence countryside over the lakes and hills. The view from the terrace is fantastic.
Food is absolutely great, it os accompanied with all gourmand attributes like amuze de bouches, pre-desert etc, fantastic breads and butters. Also some dishes are coming in two servings, so in fact you have two little dishes instead of one.

But the most important is that food reminds food by the taste, so if it is fish you understand that it is fish even though i looks like a cake and all very tasty. We were in a two star establishments afterwards, and I must tell this place is much better by all means.

I just wish it remains the same.

We dined here twice in the last week, our first and last night staying at the Terre Blanche resort, but then this restaurant deserves to be appraised in it's own right, as it is a completely different experience to the standard hotel restaurant. Not to be confused, even though there is barely a few metres in space between them. We also dined at a 2 Michelin starred restaurant in Le Cannet, so had a reference from which to compare standards, we like our food!

So here is the very first Trip Advisor review of Faventia, am sure there will be more!

Ambience - we dined outside on both occassions, and had fabulous views across the manicured resort and across to the hills, very romantic. Inside is very plush, and the tables are laid according to a high end restaurant. However, there should be more of a screen between the two outdoor parts of the restaurants, when you are sitting in first class, you really do not want to see the passengers in economy!

Menu choice - excellent and on par with the two star restaurant. Good selection of fresh fish dishes, and taster menus are available. The bread is almost a course in itself. Cheese trolley is quite extensive, but they haven't quite got the best of France yet. The sweetie trolley which arrives with coffee is an additional course, and the little pastries and chocolates are delicious. My tip, forget dessert, you haven't got room for both.

Quality of food and cooking - it is clear that standards are improving, even within the space of a few days a couple of dishes were being experimented with. The ingredients are of high quality, and there is a level of sophistication to the cooking. A number of starter and fish dishes come as 2 servings, ie you enjoy the dish twice. My tip, the Lobster with Ceps is one of the best dishes I have ever tasted. I nearly licked the plate.

Wine menu - the best of France is represented here, including an extensive local list. Rest of World doesnt feature, quite rightly so.

Service - the first night was a Comedy of Errors, the last night a much better experience, but mistakes were still made. The staff are truly magnificent, friendly, and not arrogant as in some other French establishments, with stars, that I could mention. But the error rate needs to drop, as consistency is key. Given the wrong menu, presented the wrong bill, our wine was given to another table, and our dishes were served the wrong way around, to name a few.

Overall - it is a wonderful experience and on a par with the 2 star restaurant in Le Cannet. But then they are already charging Michelin star prices, both dinners were actually more expensive. If the service and menu continue to improve, this will give the Michelin Inspectors food for thought!
