We enjoyed a fantastic 4 course "Menu Tentations" accompanied by great wine as well as pleasant and professional service. High quality food at a reasonable price. A must when you visit Cote d'Azur.

Have been to this restaurant several years ago, before the Michelin star - so we had great expectations. Went for the tasting menu and some dishes were very nice, however not outstanding. The meat was hard work,some of it impossible to chew - so we had to leave some of it on the plate. No comments from the waiter. Good... More

French only menu however the waiter was very helpful and the service was great. This is a great cosy restaurant conveniently situated just one street back from the really busy area.

We ordered the Surprise menu and received dishes that were part of the sheaper menus. On one of the dishes the same sauce was served as on one of the amuses ! Not one dish had the flavor that one would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. We did not see the chef nor his spouse who used to supervise... More

This Michelin stared restaurant is a great gem in Sainte Maxime. This small restaurant has les than 10 tables. Most guests choose one of the set menus. The food and drink are great. We enjoyed ourselves. A similar restaurant in St Tropez charges much more than La Badiane does. Definitly worth a detour.

It was one of the best fine dining experience of us! Everything we ate was extremely delicious. Restaurant was on a silent and cute street. Staff was ver friendly and helpful. You definately must try here if you visit St. Maxime, or visit St. Maxime to try this restaurant.
