We had dinner here once, but that one time was great. We had a beautiful piece of meat with fries and salad. A half a liter or Rosé and a bottle of water. As dessert we had a coffee gourmand. It was delcious and very affordable.

Having just arrived in France, we essentially picked this restaurant at random based on its location in a rather attractive square, looking for a relatively quick and inexpensive lunch with the family.

Although I have now read a number of mixed reviews for this restaurant, our experience was extremely positive. Service was very efficient ensuring our children did not get too restless waiting for the food to arrive. When it did arrive, the food was certainly a lot more imaginatively presented than a lot of the lunchtime spots we alighted on during our holiday.

I had an item from the specials - gigot d'agneau - which was well seasoned and tender. My wife had the salade nicoise which she enjoyed.

The bill was very reasonable at just over 40 EUR for two adults and two children (menu enfant).

We would certainly return if in Vence again.

Was it just one of those random events or was typical of the operation? I will never know, but the staff admitted to being short-handed and the service was poor. One can get over that, but only if the food claims redemption.
The duck was like shoe leather, and further comment is superfluous.

A pleasant outdoor table arrangement with umbrellas and a sunny village square made this hot June lunch special indeed. We were not in the mood for a large meal and opted for a Salade Nicoise and an Omelette with a carafe of wine...just enough to keep us fit until taking the drive back to the coast. Very cordial wait staff, fast but not rushed service, and an atmosphere of being in a lively social environment all added to the experience. We would recommend this charming little stop for anyone wanting a good selection of mid-range meals whilst shopping in the quaint boutiques of this wonderful hillside village. For an after-lunch sweet, don't hesitate to take the Cafe and Dessert Sampler...a fabulous end to the meal.
