Plenty of choice in Ste Maxime to eat out but this is great for all round service and taste. I ate the 22-€ menu but that had good choice and was superbly cooked. My kids ate off the kids menu and enjoyed what was served. The service was prompt and cheerful and overall a good experience

Les Platens is a lovely restaurant in St Maxime. We had fabulous food and excellent service. We sat outside under the trees, next to an enormous old wine press which added to this wonderfully French Riviera experience.

My daughter and I dined here 21/07/16 having made a reservation for the "première service" at 19.30 hrs. We arrived late, due to a massive clutch/gear box failure, tears, trauma and a change of car. We were courteously greeted and seated, (check out the BODY on the head waiter!) and chose from the 32 Euro menu. I chose courgette flowers,... More

Best duck so far in Sainte Maxine. Quiet and tranquil. Except for a few smokers. I try to be patient.

It's for reviews like this one that I wish Tripadvisor would change their very odd rating system - I would say that this was somewhere between average and very good. This was our first dinner in Ste Maxime and the food was absolutely divine. We can highly recommend the smoked salmon stuffed with crab to start and both the entrecote... More

We happened upon this restaurant by chance. We were a family of 5 plus an infant. We were seated straight away- the restaurant seemed busy but they were happy to love tables together and chairs to accommodate our needs. The staff were very friendly - they humoured my dodgy French but they understood all we ordered. The set menu for... More

We ate in this restaurant on the 14th of July (national holiday). Food was good and fresh. Negative point: the staff forgot the rice. For the rest, i can recommend this restaurant for fine dining. The restaurant was entirely packed and you did not really notice. The place is quite rolantic in the evening under the trees and with the... More

We got seated in an outside tent, heated with gaslamp. We were very lucky to get seated as the restaurant was pretty full at 9 pm. We ordered the € 29 set menu and everything was delicious, also the wine bottle we ordered. I liked a lot my fish soup- the portion is really big and I surprised myself that... More

We have often eaten here in the summer , the food is quite good and the seasonal staff are friendly . The outside terrace is wonderful under the trees in July. In the cooler months the whole experience is different, the food is still ok but the owner is serving and she makes little effort to ensure you have an... More
