Wow. Wonderfully rustic feel to the place...spent half my time simply enjoying the meat being cooked on the open fire right next to me. The food itself was incredible. The figs and foie gras starter took me completely by surprise, the steak was unbelievable. Would happily go well out of my way to return.

This is one of the greatest restaurant I've tasted in France in my life. Magnificent Bohemien sauce, my friends tasted also the meat and they were enthusiastic The Vegetables box is something at lest to see The location and the decor are very good Plenty of English people and they're very good in finding special spots!

Been coming here for many years and it just gets better and better. A simple menu cooked over an open fire. They say "on ne change rien" but in fact they do keep making small tweaks to stay on top of their game. A delightful place, a wonderful family and the food brings you back again and again.

This family run auberge sits high above Cap Ferat although technically it is in Nice. It is a rustic place which serves an amazing set menu, beginning with antipasti of prosciutto, marinated mushrooms, aubergine, and garden vegetables in an enormous basket. Then your choice of beef, lamb or maigret which are cooked before your eyes on the open fireplace in... More

As we have lived in monaco for years, I can't believe we have never been to this place before. Really great food starting with the garlic bread, following with the beef and ending in great desserts. It was expensive but the 3 bottles of Lynch Bages didn't help the bill. We will return"

We cme here twice, we loved it so much. Small, you eat in a stone walled room with an open fire at center. All bread, potatoes,... More

Our family have been visiting Le Chaumiere since the early 1980's; family run, with a set menu, it delivers an extravagant night out in every sense. The younger generation have now taken over the Management and, apart from a few blips along the way, they maintain the consistency, quality and theatre that makes this a unique dining experience.

I love it when we stumble over unique restaurants. La Chaumiere is only 300 metres from where we are staying, so we just wandered up the road for some dinner - and what a find!! It would have no more than 10 - 12 tables and there is only a limited choice regarding your meal - beef, lamb, duck (or... More

Description
Grilled specialty but our vegetarian friends are also welcome, lots of vegetables and cheeses are also available. It is a traditional French cuisine type and it is a friendly restaurant. All our meats are cooked in the fireplace in the center of the room before your eyes. Our dishes are cooked on site and is maison.Nos products are fresh and raw. This is the spirit of La Chaumière since 1952 .All is of high quality but it is a concept, simplicity and taste so if you expect gourmet cuisine and white glove service to better dining elsewhere. The team is friendly and relaxed despite a dress code. No shorts but the tie is not mandatory rest assured! Leave your car in the hands of our valet and relax for a pleasant moment by the fire. (Reservations strongly recommended)
