Elegant, imaginative dishes, provençal with a modern twist, made with local produce. We sat on the upper terrace, with a view over the square. The service was excellent and the experience relaxing and delicious. We went once as a couple and once with our adult son and daughter and all enjoyed it.

Charming and good food, one of the places I visit the most in MS, but closed for lunch on a Saturday? Really? That is pretty uncommercial. Good service too and serving outside and inside. How they maintain such high prices is a big ?

Had a great evening with my fiancee. I tried the beef and foie gras millefueille, generous and so tasty. She had the seabass, perfectly cooked and very light. The wine recommendation was great too, they have a chili white wine that's worth trying. Nothing to say but a very good restaurant to try in this area

The food here was really nice and I would recommend the stuffed sea bass. However, the food wasn't very hot and seemed overpriced considering the poor service. Our waitress in particular seemed quite grumpy. Overall I would not recommend and I will not be returning, particularly as you can get a much nicer 3 course meal elsewhere in the area... More

Considering the outstanding service in restaurants throughout the area, the service at this restaurant was frankly appalling. The waitress did not make eye contact, even upon paying, and was snippy and cold throughout. The food was very nice but served in fairly small portions and was lukewarm at best. When spending the best part of €40 a head for a... More

We had only time for a quick dinner but still enjoyed the food. It was a very rainy evening and we were greeted warmly at the door. Service was ok. I would still say it's a good choice. Wish we could have stayed for dessert! Next time!

We had a very good meal at La Cantina, the menu had a good range of dishes at medium price, good, attentive service. We live locally and would definitely choose to go back again! I'd also like to mention that we had a mix-up with our online booking (not the fault of the restaurant) which the management dealt with with... More

If you're looking for a nice place, not too expensive, to have lunch in the quite horrible city of Mouans Sartoux this restaurant is fine. Staff is friendly and in the kitchen they try to make an effort which is nice. They seem to have a small terrace which is probably nice in the summer.

The restaurant is well located nearby the city hall and thus visible and accessible. It is a bit trendy to go there however; there is neither real soul nor anything really special. Both the atmosphere and meals are correct but not to let an imperishable memory.

Not bad, not oustanding, somehow in between. From location to service to food. Location certainly was an old tex mex before, nicely decoratee, but has no real soul, service was nice but not interested and food was ok, but not overwhelming. Pas de grande faute mais pas de grand plaisir non plus
