As with many restaurants who care about the quality of their food, this one has a limited menu of enough but not too many dishes. I went for the 41 euros 3 course, the shrimps with mango, the fillet de beouf and a cafe gourmand. All 3 courses were excellent. This is a family run restaurant, where the father is... More

My friends and I chose this restaurant because, quite frankly, our first two choices had no available tables. As it turns out, it worked out very well. The hostess and her daughter were lovely and happy to accommodate our less than perfect French. The spinach flan with goat cheese was delicious and artistically presented. My filet de boeuf was cooked... More

Based on the tripadvisors reviews we chose this restaurant. After all, we do not have to regret this choice. The guest host is friendly and you feel welcome. Only little negative point it that is it rather expensive, 26 euro for a fillet de boeuf with some mushrooms and potatoes is quite expensive but l guess it's the touristic price... More

A smallish a la carte and a menu for €26 - the latter we chose by accident. On the Wednesday night in June just 10 people dining outside. Friendly waitress and young assistant. My beetroot puree with goats cheese, large grilled prawns, and a banana dessert were all excellent. Good Cotes de Provence rose. Total bill for 2 was €98... More

This restaurant changed hands at the beginning of this year so the deservedly good reviews from the previous owners don't really apply. We didn't try the new version but it looked rather different. Note my rating is only there since I had to fill it in.

Have eaten here on many occasions but under the previous ownership when the food was better and the service excellent This time the food was patchy and the service , admittedly at peak time on Saturday evening , was poor. We waited 45mins between entree and main courses. Then we were overcharged by €6 for one of the dishes. Underwhelming... More

Looked nice. No kids menu. Kids pay for a full main course. Seems mean and discourages family clients. Kids disliked their main courses. Local bandol wine was nice. All felt a bit too inflexible. It was their way or the highway. Won't be back. Too much choice in bandol...

Our best meal in Bandol, which is a place the restored our faith in French restaurants. We had no disappointing meals in the town but the set meal here was exquisite: the dishes were beautiful and excellent.
