We were invited into the restaurant by a nice "meet and greet" lady who showed us to a table, a good start. However it was some 15 minutes before were given the menus, we ordered shortly afterwards but had drunk three quarters of a bottle of wine (between 2) before we had to then remind them that we had still not eaten!
Our food when it did arrive was very tasty, pizza was excellent (crispy and thin) with plenty of topping and the pasta was just as enjoyable

We came to this restaurant by chance while visiting Vence and as it was after 3pm were not in high hopes that they would serve lunch but were pleased this was not the case. The staff were very welcoming, the menu was in both French and English and the selection varied. Would recommend to check the back of the menu for lighter meals/snacks from the more substantial meals. Prices were a bit expensive but the service was warm and friendly.

We ate here with toddler and staff couldn't have been friendlier. Food was good too but a point taken off as was hard to attract the attention of waiter. Probably not his fault as he seemed to be waiting on more than half the restaurant while three other waiters had the rest?!? Also some people like long meals but with a toddler we just wanted to eat reasonably quickly. Would go back for lunch as there is a square opposite which is safe for little ones to run around in between courses.

Any time, and it is frequent that we go to Vence, this is our "go to guy". The restaurant is refurbished, the staff experienced and professional, the food varied enough for most palates. Sure not Michelin, but prices are value for money and ambience, good weather or bad, is great.
We really enjoy this place.

I would give this 3 but my husband 4. The reason being my husband went for the set menus which was very good value indeed. Myself not being that hungry selected a pasta dish of prawns and scallops. Although the fish was perfect the pasta was very over cooked and the sauce quite basic. Dessert of tiramisu was lovely. My husband had the fois gras, a fish dish that was good and tarte tatin. Rose wine accompanied this and we got free coffees. Nice place, nice atmosphere. Worth another visit time permitting
