Had lunch at this lovely little spot on a cloudy day that threatened rain. The first thing the proprietresse did was to make sure we would be protected by the awning if it rained while we were eating outdoors. She then proceeded to engage us in discussion about our tastes and preferences, making suggestions and debating some of our choices in a lighthearted yet clearly knowledgeable way. The meal was divine - from the amuse-bouche to the foie-gras to the tarte aux tomates to the creme brûlée to the local rose wine. Wish I was going to spend more time in this lovely town because this restaurant would see me often.

I think the secret of eating out in Valbonne is to search out the places off the main square. The contrast between the restaurants on the square ( busy and more volume focussed) and the off square places ( smaller but generally full with more selective menu and great wine choices) was an eye opener- we tried the square a few times before discovering this!
For this restaurant great food and service in a lovely setting despite the outside space being basically in a narrow street with front doors to the right and left of you!!
Would certainly recommend a visit.

A lovely evening and a wonderful meal. Every course was excellent and Valerie was very warm and attentive. I highly recommend you go but make sure you book in advance because the restaurant is very popular.

Visited on Friday evening with friends. You need to reserve a table with Valerie. She is the most hospitable lady we have met and as always the service she provides is second to none. Champagne on arrival and nibbles and as always amazing food- steak, tomato tart, fois gras, scallops, veal to name but a few of the wonderful dishes.
Thank you for the wonderful evening we had with friends over a lovely meal and drinks.

Every year we visit this restaurant. Everything we had here was great. The salads, main meals, little snacks you get while you are waiting. I would recommend to everybody.
