We had dinner here last Friday evening. Although it was out of season, the atmosphere was charming,warm and super friendly We had an amazing dinner, the food was superb. My shellfish risotto was the best I have ever eaten. We will definitely return to this little gem on the main road outside of ste Maxime

Having moved outside this area, it has been nearly 2 years since we have visited Les Planches. We found out that they recently acquired a new chef, and he is wonderful. The selection was perfect and the quality of high caliber. There are also other very good restaurants in Sainte Maxime, but now this is our favorite. Dining in an... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Les Issambres. Great location, great host and staff. Very good food, but a little expensive. Ate there today, was warmly welcomed, but new chef? Not as good as before, sorry guys!

Lunch today. Frito misto awful. Steak tartare very good. Tartare of tuna very good. Veal Milanese awful. Waiters charging round and splashing wine in the glasses and on one occasion on the table. Not at all relaxing.

A friendly welcome, a marvellous terrace built on rocks lapped by waves (on a calm day!), aspiringly good food, very slow service. As restaurants go along this coast, this is one of the better bets.

Les Planches is my favourite for a romantic dinner, even if this time we celebrated family birthdays. You feel like on a boat and watching the sunset over the sea is just magic. The food is superb and the service friendly.

Location? 5/5 - right down by the water with the sea lapping at the terrace. Service? 5/5 from the Maitre d' - Boris who instantly makes you feel welcome and at home- to all the other staff who are helpful. The food is simply awesome though pricey if you take the fresh fish option. We have eaten well on this... More

Unique setting directly at the seaside, exactly what you expect from a (mainly) seafood and fish restaurant, right? Then you will not be disappointed, but of course, d'ont expect to pay the price of a big mac for what is offered: great view, carefully selected wines, fish of the day and friendly smiles.
