“disappointed the 2nd time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

The first time we went, the food was good; however the server was too chatty and not paying attention (removed wine glasses whereas we had ordered wine; did not remove our dirty plates and glasses after bringing us coffee). We went a second time and were disappointed by the food. The fish was bland (in spite of herbs growing in the garden) and the chocolate dessert was overcooked. Also the wine is expensive and the servers do not seem to know how to advise you on wine.

“Garden restaurant, excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

We ate here on two occasions during June 2013 while staying at the co-located hotel. Everything prepared with care, artistic but not pretentious. Friendly, efficient service, not too fast, not too slow.

“Okay but could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012 via mobile

You can tell that the quality of the food here is excellent but compared to La Litote, it's a poor second.
Make sure you understand what you are ordering before you order as my husband wanted beef and ended up with duck.
The duck was covered with a olive paste and did not taste like duck at all.
The entrees were lovely though.
Wines are pricey.
Overall a nice small restaurant set in a lovely poolside area with food prepared by a French chef but it did not wow us as was expected.

“Great kitchen and inadequate service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

We were well received and were pleasently surprised reading the menu card which had dishes going beyound the usual fare in this town. The grilled Dorade was great and the suffle a orange et Grand Marnier second to none.
Unfortunately the service was not up to scratch - the waiters were running and did not attend to the tables - it seems more professional staff is required.
This restaurant as many others in Cote d'Azur unfortunately mark up wines 3.5 to 4 times which makes it imposssible to find a wine less than EUR 45 - this is outrageous given a 2 course meal average EUR 50. Do change this rip-off practice.

“A step above the rest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

This is a real restaurant serving fresh tasty food, in very Pleasant surroundings, either in the modern dining room, or on the greaser overlooking the herb garden or terrasse.

This is a much more pleasant venue than all the other quaint restaurants in Vence selling rubbish food and grotty wine, with bad food at inflated prices. There is free parking, good food and service, and a reasonable wine list. If you like White Sauvignon try the Attitude by Paul Jolivet

One of my regular restaurants
