We discovered this by chance. Excellent service, food is of high quality, with organic produce and local products. They combine flavors creatively, while giving the center stage to the local products. Salads are amazing, great sea brim, and memorable risotto.

Small with friendly staff. The food is all locally sourced with great flavors. The small but interesting menu has given us reason enough to come back. The food is prepared to order so do not expect fats food. This is slow food prepared well!

The very first place we dined in Valbonne and the food was good. The service was not. When we asked for bread we were told with a laugh, "we are a bar, not a restaurant." Bars don't have bread? Right.

Came back to this small bistrot and love the food that is so fresh, so organic, so refreshing. If you want French Fries and Moules, please go somewhere else: moules don't grow in this region and are bought in bulk in Costco-like places at all...More

We are a family of seven and we're extremely disappointed with the meal. The menu is very limited, service slow and confused and the food was awful. Cannot understand where the ratings came from.

Everything from the food to the wine to the beer is organic. It's not haute cuisine, but it's always a good meal, and I've never been disappointed. Don't be scared off if it looks empty as there's a second room upstairs that is cosier and...More
