Best food in Valbonne, maybe one of the best restaurants on the whole Riviera!! Super wine, top service (husband is the chef and wife serving), and of course Haut Cuisine! I'm going back as often as possible

7 years since I was last here, but I promise myself it will be a much shorter wait until next time. Great food, top chef, and super wine! Gourmet dinner!

Wonderful meal, every course was utterly delicious and beautifully presented. Cooked to Oder so fresh and tasty for a one man operation. Would definitely go back again.

Tiny restaurant 5 minute walk from Valbonne square (also parking opposite). Genuine husband and wife team. I was told ( by my hosts) , when they decide they have as many customers as they can handle, restaurant is "full". They take pride in maintaining the highest standards of service. "Foodies" come from everywhere to experience the exquisite food. Not being... More

We are foodies. We have eaten at every 3 star Michelin restaurant there is to eat at. We have travelled to Spain to eat in all of their legendary restaurants. Lou Cigalon rivals all of them. The chef is meticulous with his food, his sauces, spices and garnishes. This is a feast for the nose, the mouth and the eyes.... More

This is a small family restaurant operated by husband (chef) and wife. We visited it the past and returned a few years later this week on another Valbonne visit. The menu while a bit pricy is well worth the investment. The daily 3 course dinner menu is limited but included two choices from each course and will satisfy meat and... More

We had a delicious dinner here at the hands of the chef in his wonderful little kitchen. The dishes were beautifully presented and the wine was excellent. The wait times in between courses were excessive through, sometimes 45 minutes. We were there almost 3 hours, waiting waiting.
