La Mandragore offers a limited daily menu of really good local food. The dish of the day is around 14.5 euros but for another 2 euros you can have a pudding and coffee - both to the same high standard which offers excellent value for money.

Authentic local food is, in our experience, quite hard to find in the this part of the Cote d'Azur but La Mandragore offers quality, local dishes to a very high standard. Daily specials include Aioli (Friday - salt cod, vegetables, egg and garlic mayonnaise aka ailoi), fried stuffed courgette flowers and pies. In addition they offer salads, carpaccio and similar. Everything we have eaten there has been delicious. Puddings include tarte tatin and lemon meringue tarte are also delicious.

The food is freshly prepared and if you have the dish of the day it is delivered to you by the chef. The staff/owners are very friendly and the setting is charming.

The experience is quite quirky and service is leisurely, allow 2 hours for lunch, pudding and coffee.

We highly recommend it.
