“AWFUL Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2011

I visited the beautiful village of Sablet and cannot rave enough about the place. Beautiful scenery great vineyards and lovely people. This restaurant is my only disappointment of a wonderful week spent in France. The hostess in this restaurant is out right rude. We waited patiently for her attention however she then blatantly ignored us. When she did speak she was actually obnoxious - needless to say we did not eat here. Thankfully this service was not representative of our holiday and will probably return in September!

“Excellent food, good value.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2010

A diverse menu that always includes game in season, Les Abeilles continues to provide an excellent dining experience. Our waiter didn't speak English (a little touchy I'm afraid) so the Chef came out of the kitchen to discuss each dish. All items are home made: the pate's, sausages, sauces, ect... All are fresh and in season. The atmosphere is a bit stuffy, but Chef Johannes was at ease. If you'are in the area enjoy Les Abeilles. (Oh, and be sure to go around the corner less than a half mile and try Restaurant Les Genets. Fantastic).

“Better dining options in the area.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2009

When we asked a local vigneron about fine dining options in or near Sablet, he tried to steer us away from Les Abeilles. Since we were staying within walking distance to Les Abeilles and have a friend who suggested the restaurant, however, we decided to give Les Abeilles a try. What a mistake! We visited about 20 restaurants on our recent trip to France and Les Abeilles was the only place where we encountered truly rude, unprofessional service. Overall I'd say the food was average and overpriced for the quality. Perhaps we visited on an off night?

For better dining options in the area try Le Grand Pre (Roaix), Le Mesclun (Seguret), or La Table du Comtat (Seguret).
