It is a tiny place, but cozy and charming. We had some of the lunch specials of the day. They started by giving us small verrines of soupe de legumes which was stupendous- I could have had an entire bowl of it! 2 of us had the Chestnut soup (with swiss chard and blood sausage- amazingly good as well.

We ate here on a cold Sunday lunchtime and were received with a warm welcome. The restaurant only has about 30 covers, so we had to book and were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food sublime. We were given an amuse bouche of squash soup with our aperitif then both had the potage de legumes and the... More

My wife and I have been coming here for ten years now. When the team opened L'Ecole des Filles in Bar Sur Loup we ate there on an almost weekly basis for over a year. In all the times we have eaten at l'Ecole des Filles (now sadly under new management that are nowhere near the same standard) or Au... More

we booked, but arrived slightly before the due time, the waitress ranted about this kind of people arriving early, asked us to come again later, which we did, and then ignored us when we got back to finally behave in a really inappropriate manner, just gross and greedy.

I have just got to rave about this place. Mr Lucas you are a wonderful cook. Everytime I visted this place during my holiday it was a delight. Fantastic food, great depth of flavour. Eve and Stephanne you just made my holiday amazing.

This is a small establishment so get here early or book to guarantee a seat. At last the best place in the area. I have been on holiday for nearly three weeks and eaten out everyday. It beats everyone for flavour, imagination and genuine great taste. I would come here everyday because the chef can cook. You are hitting above... More

This is a regular for us when we are in the area, which is most years. Consistantly high quality food, small menu and beautifully presented. Professional and freindly service - an absolute gem.

We visited this restaurant in 2011, and came back. New Management it seemed to be according to our old business card from this place. But they do deliver a perfect meal. A marvellous risotto was served ; the meat therein must have been cooked for quite a long time. So extremely tender and soft. I could have gone for a... More
