Description: Les Templiers is situated in just of the road that drives to the Col de Vence. Here cooking and service are spot on again with exquisite dishes well-flavoured elaborated with delicious products of our region.The restaurant’s interior is welcoming with natural lighting and a pleasing airy environment. It is warmly decorated with a display of works of art. There are two separate dining rooms the veranda that is an extraordinary space with stone wall, immense glass doors and refreshing splash of green, gives the filling of serenity and tranquillity and the chimney room that is a warm cosy area, with a huge chimney and deeper coloured wall’s that creates an intimate feel to the room and a few interesting art pieces on display are all you need for a finished look. Both rooms are viewing a beautiful flourish terrace where you can enjoy the shade of a hundred years old vineyard.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Les templiers is the place I choose for a romantic escapade with my wife when we visit the Riviera. We have been there once every summer for the past 7 years and we have never been disappointed. So it has become kind of a tradition for us.
The courtyard is really charming and the service is very attentive.
The food is simply excellent.
I look forward to our next visit in a month time!

“Delicious but expensive”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

This is a charming, romantic restaurant in a beautifully decorated courtyard. The food was amazing as was the bar selection. I found it to be a bit on the pricy side, but was worth it.

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

I like this restaurant. It's a delight dining al fresco underneath the vine. The welcome is warm, the menu is interesting and the wine list is good.

The restaurant isn't very prepossessing when viewed from outside, located on the corner of a busy junction (well, busy for Vence I think!) but inside it's a haven of calm and relative sophistication.

I believe this to be one of the best restaurants in Vence, which probably hasn't achieved a higher ranking up the TA list because it isn't located in the old town. But to be frank, the old town square is crowded with restaurants and touring musicians so if you want a quiet haven away from what I would describe as 'tourist tack' then come here - you will not be disappointed.

“Disappointment”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

This restaurant is highly overrated.
The quality of the food is fluctuating but the final bill is always on the high side for what it is..
Service is average, and the wine list is expensive for what is on offer.
There are better places to eat out in Vence.

Dear Sir
I assure you that the quality of our restaurant is there and we are working hard for that. Concerning the prices, I must say that we give to our clientele the capacity to chose between different menus (29€ and 39€) plus a selection a la carte. Concerning our wine list it’s the same thing, we have a selection of 85 different wines and the first price begins at 22€. Actually we give plenty of economical possibilities to our clientele to chose. Of course the final price depends on your choices
Our purpose is to maintain a high standard and without precise feedback it is difficult to do so. It would be much appreciated to give us specific details.

Sincerely yours Elena
