We loved both the atmosphere (this is a very small place, it feels cosy, the service is discreet and friendly) and the quality of the food - one of our best meals in the South of France.

We have been to several resturantene during the years we have been on vacation in Bandol and this is one of the best. The service is very good; effektive with and friendly and personal touch. The menu is not that big, but still tempting! We both had entrecôte with fois graise. Fantastic! Easy to visit with kids.

Tucked away in a quiet street one block back from the bustling seafront this little restaurant is surprisingly good and rather larger than expected. Inside there are two levels with three or so tables on each level but outside there are four or maybe five tables. There is a fixed price menu at 27euro for three courses which is excellent... More

We went for lunch and had their menu of the day which was excellent value. Make sure you book as it's always full which speaks for the quality.

Lovely restaurant situated in the rue behind the main road on the front. Husband and wife team, she was very efficient yet rather somber throughout service. The menu is limited but the quality of the food was second to none. We went straight into the main course however were offered a crab aperitif with a selection of breads which was... More

On a blustery Monday evening we stumbled on this establishment and made a reservation for when they opened, luckily we did as they were fully booked. We had a delicious meal, nicely presented and good value. The lady (presumably the chef's wife) at front of house was pleasant and efficient and as in most restaurants in France our dog was... More

Ok so you get in, order something that sounds good and then start the tasting experience. Refreshingly delicious! Would really recommend but you need to book table in advance.

I have to echo all the good things others have said about this lovely little restaurant which is located just off the sea-front in Bandol. Charming, intimate atmosphere, excellent service, lovely food, good wine and all reasonably priced. Give it a try!

We booked the same day for that evening and glad we did. The service, set menu and ambiance and wine were all faultless. There are so many places to eat in Bandol along the front which offer the same type of food, this restaurant is in a lovely quiet street behind the front and is very elegant and refined but... More

There is no wonder this restaurant is so highly rated, the food is excellent although you will have to book, but worth the wait
