Came here in October, as it was close to the apartment we were staying , and also heard good reviews online. The 3 of us had the butchers beef which was very nice. Also the chips were crispy and the sauce was tasty. 100% recommend the dish and this place. Customer service also very good. Will return !

The restaurant is located in the old Town of Vence. Good food, friendly staff, try it! Vence is just Close to Cagnes sur mer.

We had a very enjoyable meal - inside, after all it is November. The restaurant is in an old building and a nice ambience. Interesting choice of entrees - very good (1) quail (2) goats cheese as was the plat du jour of prawn linguine, and we had a selection of desserts with coffee. Excellent friendly service.

Very friendly service, the duck breast was perfectly cooked, sauce was a little heavy for me but flavour was great. Very reasonably priced menu with a good varied selection.

In a lovely square in historic Vence Le Pigeonnier offers indoor and outdoor dining. The service is very good and we loved our meals. One of my favourites on this holiday. I enjoyed the sea bass with a fennel confit and wild rice with a delicious sauce and my husband recommends the beef stew with orange and gnocchi. We shared... More

Le Pigeonnier is located in the centre of Vence, like a great number of very similar restaurants. Most have more or less the same selection of dishes. And the price level is very similar. The Pigeonnier is average quality and same prices as all the other outdoor restaurants in central Vence.

At 7 pm. on a September evening, we elected to sit inside. It's on a little square which is nice by day, but delightful at night, with the illuminated fountain the focal point. It helps to be short, as the ceilings are very low ! The place must be ancient. The service was excellent, and they were able to adapt... More

Consistently good food and service. My personal favourite in Vence. The beef and orange casserole can not be beaten- I've given up trying to recreate it at home! The desserts are truly divine.
