An unique restaurant full of passion driven by its chef Christophe Dufau, a real Artisan of Food. I had never experience such a great atmosphere. The food is superb. You will be surronded by the aromatic garden... a real oasis full of warmess and high quality food. Take the Dégustation Menu and finish your dinner with delicious verven offered by... More

Les Bacchanales is a dining experience not to be missed. I've eaten at a handful of Michelin-star restaurants, but not one on France, where you just expect more. We were not disappointed. The setting and service was impeccable, the wine pairings seamless, and the food, well, it was truly phenomenal.

We did not like any of the courses, and were really disappointed in the menu. We have been to many Michelin star restaurants, but this one just did not impress us at all. Maybe we were just unlucky with this seasons menu.

Having always enjoyed Les Bacchanales I was frankly shocked to see a recent negative review. This past summer we dined there at least three times, always with guests. We were greeted warmly, we had excellent service, and the food was absolutely sublime. Unfortunately I cannot mention specific dishes as it has blended in my mind after letting some time go... More

Slow, comically arrogant service and genuinely unpleasant flavour/texture combinations - masquerading as "inventive" modern French cuisine - make this one of the worst restaurants I've been to in recent years. The chef-proprietor presides over an odd cast of subordinates and a distinctly unconvivial ambiance like a living caricature of the self-important culinary colossus - if only the food justified this...

We have been visiting Les Bacchanales for many years and we always try to go at least once during our stay in Tourrettes. The menu changes regularly and last Saturday September 24th it was quite new to us. The Amuse bouche was exceptional - half melon served with fresh anchovies and Japanese leaves and a separate side dish of tapioca... More

My partner and I have visited the Bacchanales restaurant twice now and both times have been blown away, we can not fault it. The menus are always new and imaginative the chefs have a real talent. The staff are very friendly and professional, we really liked the little touches and attention to detail. Having the chefs explain the dishes at... More

Forget the trendy restaurants of the Riviera and get to this quiet and Artsy Oasis of perfect food! You will not be disappointed! Ate Outside and it is a real pleasure for the "gourmand" and the Art Lovers. Totally recommend

40€ excellent lunch menu, perfect service and elegant environment. Have a walk in the garden where the chef cultivates all the herbs and vegetables used in the kitchen and in 4 minutes you will reach la chapel de Matisse.

I cannot recommend this place. It is expensive and neither the food nor wine is impressive. The headwaiter acted impolitely and had an arrogant attitude towards us, especially at the end of our dinner. In addition, the chef, Christophe Dufau, became almost aggressive when we asked why we were charged for food that we had never received. It was very... More
