This restaurant offers a great fine dining alternative to the other restaurants in town. It's small but offers a non pretentious Michelin experience. From the four menus we opted for the €54 one and had a great four course dinner plus a few extra tasters...More

I love this restaurant because the quality and the taste of the food is so fresh and well put together. We had the carte Blanche at 92 € and enjoyed every mouthful. The front of house is charming and informative, but I feel on occasion...More

Out of the four restaurants at which we dined in Ste Maxime this was the haute cuisine. The menu catered well for all four of our party of two Brits and two USA. The service was exceptionally good and the wine excellent.

The chef continues to amaze whenever I visit this restaurant. It offers menus at around 40, 50 and 85 euros. (Prices have gone up a bit with the award of a Michelin star.) The last one was the "carte blanche" tasting menu that we tried...More

This is a restaurant serving gourmet food rather than tourist food. The dishes are well cooked and beautifully presented with amuse bouches which are a delight. Would recommend.

Wow! - We really enjoyed this restaurant. Everything was proper "One star Michelin", from the canapes, the bread, right through to dessert. It's not easy to find, so ask for directions. We had the Euro 50 set menu, which was very good value, and offered...More

I visited Le Badiane in April for the first time and was very impressed. I've been visiting Ste Maxime for many years and have never had a better meal than the one I had here. The small (10 or so tables) restaurant is simple and...More

Bonjour madame, si ce restaurant ouvre à 19h30, il ne peut donc pas vous recevoir avant, comme tout commerce ou service affichant des horaires d'ouverture au public... mais on vous aura certainement proposé de patienter quelques minutes en terrasse ? Vous avez manqué une grande table qui mérite à être connue et je vous souhaite d'y retourner aux horaires d'ouverture car les plats sont vraiment sublimes. Je ne pense pas qu'il faille juger si négativement leur ponctualité (c'est une grande qualité qui a tendance à se perdre), surtout sur la grande toile du net, d'autant que vous n'avez pas jugé la cuisine de ce grand chef.

Je pense qu'il y a une erreur. Votre question m'est arrivée à moi Michelle alors que je pense qu'elle était destinée à Virginie qui effectivement a mis un commentaire concernant l'attente dans le froid avant l'ouverture.
