We've reviewed Acacias before - never a disappointing meal, copious portions, served promptly and hot! A friendly atmosphere, lots of the locals eat here - wine by the pichet but they offer a very reliable Cotes de Rhone too. Daily specials are worth a look and the a la carte menu covers most tastes and all the dishes are reasonably... More

Traditional France on a plate, attentive staff, great location, good food what more could you ask. A must visit if you are in or around Nice.

As a family of 5 we popped in for lunch. We were about to leave as a bit slow however suddenly we were attended to and, boy was it good! Traditional French cooking at its best- generous portions, more than delicious and very friendly. We will go back.

While staying with friends in Biot, visited this restaurant twice. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. I had fish on both occasions which was very reasonably priced and delicious. Was introduced to La Coupe Colonel, a dessert of lemon sorbet and vodka. House wine very good. Highly recommend.

Other TA reviewers have said this about the Cafe des Acacias, but I cannot stress enough how much fun it is to encounter such a truly "French" restaurant! Our meal was "faith maison" from starters to dessert - made right on the premises - and everything was delicious: an artichoke tart, a pastilla (bits of chicken and Moroccan spices and... More

Had lunch here, after deciding it looked the most authentic, un-touristy restaurant in the area. We both had the "Plat du Jour" which was excellent value at €13. With a glass of Rosé each,the bills till only came to €31. Very good value. A very friendly, helpful lady served us and helped with the translation. Definitely recommended.

A real French village restaurant. Owned and run by 2 large and jolly sisters. Took friends who live in Biot and we all really enjoyed a very good lunch. Not spoilt by tourism and just as it should be. Wonderful!

We were in France but we didn't speak French well, we just tried to. We went to buy a bottle of water also to see the place and to possibly return for lunch. Probably the owner, a woman, answered us 'Bonjour' when we tried to ask for the water forgetting to say hello because of the language difficulties. Then she... More

Forget the fancy pretentious Michelin aspiring foodie places. This one is the real deal. If you wondered what happened to the Two Fat ladies on TV? Well they have been reincarnated in France and run the tastiest little joint in town. This is our second visit here in two weeks and the food is brilliant home cooking. Today we ate... More

We were staying in our usual haunt of Valbonne and for a change decided to try a restaurant in Biot. It hasn't got the charm of Valbonne and after walking up and down the street, were wondering if we should not just get in the car and go back to Valbonne. It was a Monday and a lot of restaurants...
