This restaurant offers a great fine dining alternative to the other restaurants in town. It's small but offers a non pretentious Michelin experience. From the four menus we opted for the €54 one and had a great four course dinner plus a few extra tasters...More

I love this restaurant because the quality and the taste of the food is so fresh and well put together. We had the carte Blanche at 92 € and enjoyed every mouthful. The front of house is charming and informative, but I feel on occasion...More

Out of the four restaurants at which we dined in Ste Maxime this was the haute cuisine. The menu catered well for all four of our party of two Brits and two USA. The service was exceptionally good and the wine excellent.

This is a restaurant serving gourmet food rather than tourist food. The dishes are well cooked and beautifully presented with amuse bouches which are a delight. Would recommend.

Wow! - We really enjoyed this restaurant. Everything was proper "One star Michelin", from the canapes, the bread, right through to dessert. It's not easy to find, so ask for directions. We had the Euro 50 set menu, which was very good value, and offered...More

I visited Le Badiane in April for the first time and was very impressed. I've been visiting Ste Maxime for many years and have never had a better meal than the one I had here. The small (10 or so tables) restaurant is simple and...More

We came here from La Garde Freinet for our wedding anniversary and greatly enjoyed the 50 euro menu (plus cheese at 7euros). The food was excellently prepared, beautiful colours and flavours, imaginatively presented. The service was attentive but not fussy - little touches like immediately...More
