We had dinner at this intimate little restaurant and were thoroughly impressed. Service was impeccable with the owner and one waiter assisting us with our choices, not pushy but informative, very welcoming and friendly. The food was well presented and delicious. Boulliabaise a must, filling and a signature dish for the region. Would recommend this restaurant.

They open for lunch on Thursdays. Awesome French food. Nicoise salad magnifique. The salmon carpaccio is sublime. The fish soup, par excellence. We'd come back if it wasn't so far 👍👍

My husband and I stumbled on this place on a recent trip to Beaulieu. We have been to the area several times but this was the first year of us finding this little gem. It quickly became a favorite.

La Pignatelle is consistently one of the best restaurants in the area. Great food at a fair price while the service and warm welcome from the owner and staff always make you feel special.

I spend ever summer in Beaulieu and I love it but this particular restaurant is on of my favourites! Food, wine and service are always fantastic and even the setting of the restaurant is so warming you feel like you could just stay there the whole night. See you next year guys!

Not great but you could do worse. Standard fare mostly. Friendly service. We had the duck which was just ok a coupla starters and some wine. I would give it another chance for sure.

As an expat living on the Riviera for many years, I have been to La Pignatelle many times and would not hesitate to come back. The food is excellent, better value than the port (where you pay for the location), and the restaurant owner is always welcoming and makes you feel like you're at home. Definitely worth a detour from... More

Nice place itself, I would say, as the atmosphere. Good choice of meat and fish, but.... With that range of prices, in my personal opinion, the Client shouldn't need to send back the plate. The taste is missing. One of that times when out of the restaurant you feel yourself the Chief N°1 at your own kitchen.
