Our apartment is only 120 feet from this restaurant and we have always wanted to visit since the reviews have been generally favorable. On this day, the waitstaff relied on only one waiter so the bartender was helping to wait tables. Understandably, the service was slow, which is okay on a sunny Sunday afternoon. We ordered the warm goat cheese... More

My friend's house was just beside the restaurant , and we eat here often. Definitely one of my favorite places in Antibes. The waiters are friendly and superb nice. And the food here never disappointed us.

I love the home-cooked food and family run feel of this place. It's in a residential neighborhood filled with gardens and flowers and locals. Service is inviting. I'm surprised at some of the negative reviews

This restaurant was suggested by our hotel. I'm surprised it's not rated better - we liked our meal. I had the cassoulet - it was very different from what I have had at French restaurants in the states but very flavorful. The meat was so tender and the sauce was awesome. My brother-in-law had ravioli with the cassoulet beef and... More

We have been a few time at Le Safranier and enjoyed the food. The location and set up is very provincial and make you feel to be in the south of France what it is !!! sit down under the tree and enjoyed a nice cold rose and fresh fish it's always a pleasure, service can be a bit slow... More

I had courgette flowers and she had salmon tartare for starters. I had fillet and she had sea bass for main. It was all ok but only just. The salmon tartare was the tastiest bit but generally everything else lacked flavour and the fillet of beef was chewy despite being served cuisson saignante. Both main dishes were served with the...

First went to Safranier in the 1970s. In those days it was a simple cafe, off the beaten track, with a rich history and run by the local mayor. It was the place to go for really cheap but ever so satisfying meal. Cut forward 35 years or so, and the place has undergone several transformations. No longer a small... More

This place is far from the tourist areas, tucked away in the safranier neighborhood of Antibes (itself worth a stroll). Homemade meals and friendly and attentive service. Garden location and terrace in front. Fantastic, actually the BEST petite Farcis (stuffed vegetables), good beef daube and gnocchi. Phenomenal creme brule.
