Beautiful location in a garden with a nice view. Service very good. Food proposal average. Well presented but nothing great .Prices correct.

We sat outside on the terrace and ate the "basic" menu. The best fish soup I have ever had, then a deep dark beef stew with pasta and a delicious panna cotta --perfect. The service was thoughtful and pleasant and the surroundings delightful. Any complaints? Well I suppose that in order to offer a menu at less than 30 euros they have to make up with the extras, but six euros for a not enormous bottle of mineral water?

This was our third visit to this restaurant and again we were not disappointed. A warm welcome. The food is innovative and delicious. We both had the crab ravioli starter and then we both had the king prawn souffle main course. Very, very good. Wine (Chateau Minuty white) as good as ever and a reasonable price. Waiters have just the right balance of formality and being 'human' or just themselves - they are a credit to the restaurant. The host / owner makes a point of speaking to everyone and she is charming. Our favourite meal of the week. Thanks to everyone involved in making it a lovely evening for us.

Great food and atmosphere. Loved that it was tucked away in a vineyard and was exclusive because of its more remote location.

We were greeted by a warm and friendly hostess who also happened to be the wife of the chef/owner of the restaurant. We thought our reservation was at 8:30 when it was actually for 8:00 pm. The host was very forgiving and luckily for us she had not given our table away. The restaurant was booked solid from what we could see. Highly recommend booking a reservation in advance.

We ordered a bottle of rose, and the 5 course set menu. This menu consisted of an entree, choice of both a fish and meat course as the main, and both a cheese and dessert. It was very delicious and prepared well. My favourite was pork dish with white beans. Very unique and tasty.

Service was great from the owner/hostess but rude from the woman who was helping her. She was dressed in all black which matched her depressed appearance (she could have smiled a bit more) and her rude and short attitude. Quite frankly, I think she was treated us the way she did because she thought we were American (we are Canadian).

Little tip for the lady, regardless of the fact that you don't like Americans or the fact that we didn't speak French (because we didn't want to bastardize it out of respect), we are your customers and we contribute to your wages.

Overall, thank you to the amazing hostess/owner and thank you to the chef for an otherwise, a lovely and perfect dinner. We will be sure to return.

We got a tip from the parents of one of are friends and it was an excellent tip.
Marvellous location with sight on the vineyards and Saint-Tropez. One of are friends is vegetarian and she said she never had eaten so well in a restaurant. Price/quality excellent .
Service excellent. I advise you to reserve
