What a pity! A great location in the beautiful town of Valbonne. Our hotel told us it was not necessary to reserve a table this time of year. My preference for the Moroccan kitchen made us stop at la pigeot. The waiter ignored us for almost 5 minutes before he made the effort to talk to us. More than half of the tables were still available but he only offered us a small table in the back (almost having to sit op the lap of the visitors next to us) we asked for another table but the waiter only shook his head. I told him we’d be back in a few minutes (to park the car properly) when we came back he ignored us again. When we made a start to sit down he told us the table was given to other guests. Even though there were other tables available, the waiter told us in a very rude manner the restaurant was full and made no effort to help us. Other guests were also astonished by the incident. We left the place in disappointment. An insult to hospitality of the Morrocan culture! What a shame!

A must try if you are visiting the area! Absolutely delicious couscous and tajines!
Definitely recommend the pigeon pastilla as a starter and then the lamb tajine with prunes & almonds.
Situated in a great location with an awesome atmosphere.
And the service was exceptional
So thank you for a great night! :)

Had a lovely meal tonight with my family including our 8 mth old grandson. High chair provided and very helpful staff. As previously said house cocktail was lovely and portions are very large so share! We had lamb and duck tagines and a bottle of morrocan wine which was surprisingly good as we thought they were tea total!!

La Pigeot is always good, having been many times, I am always impressed by the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff. Portions are colossal and it’s comparatively inexpensive. If you’re in the area this is definitely worth going to, it’s totally different to the everything else in Valbonne which is mostly reheated from frozen tourist garbage, my comparison the nourishment at La Pigeot (an amusing name), is fresh, tastey and bountiful. A big thumbs up from a regular.

Nice alternative to standard fare. Pastilla - pigeon or fish and the tajines are excellent as is the lamb brochette. Very good service. Note two times for means. 730 or 930. They don’t take reservations at other times
