“If you like nice modern French food in an old abbey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

This place, hidden in a small town near famous St. Paul de Vence, came highly recommended by a local. The location is truly beautiful, as the restaurant (and hotel) are in an old abbey - you eat in the ancient courtyard and can tour the old chapel and modernized buildings. It is quite a classy place, with attentive almost white-glove service. They have a reasonable 3-course Abbey menu with a few selections to pick from. The food was inventive but local, foie-gras, veal, and well cooked fish. While the diners weren't blown away by the entree or mains, the desserts were uniformly acclaimed - a large pistachio macaroon was the highlight. I would recommend this place primarily for the unique ambiance, good service, and reasonable prices. A great place for a fancy and memorable meal in the hills around Vence.

“Very good place, great venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

This was the best meal of our entire trip to Nice and St Pauls - the pace is relaxed and for 5 adults, all eating three courses with Champagne it was the most reasonable in terms of price as well. The waiters are very relaxed for France - which started off as being worrying - but once you relaxed into things, it only added to its charm. The venue it's self is mainly outdoors in the court yard of the old Abbey and served as the perfect backdrop to a wonderful meal.
Having travelled around the world and visited 100's of restaurants, all with great reputations and eating a steak in about 70% of them - I can tell you I have never eaten a better steak in my life - This all down to the sauce that came with it. Incredible.. if you are in St Pauls - just head here for a much nicer, cheaper and better experience.
