We discovered this little family restaurant during a walk through Cogolin and were fortunate enough to occupy last free table. All other guests at the time were clearly French, so we were the "splash of color" on that particular night. We were welcomed by the maitre d' , seated, presented with the menu and chose the wine first, then the food. Unlike other reviewers, when we were asked to decide for desserts immediately, we declined and explained we will come back to the subject after eating main course. Our explanation was accepted, but truth is entire conversation was in French. There was a mistake when the order was brought to the table: instead of receiving the cold smoked salmon, I was presented with the cooked salmon. This lead to a profusion of apologies from the maitre d' accompanied by his offering this course for free. The whole situation concluded with our accepting the cooked salmon and giving up the cold starter intended as main course (it was after 21:30 and it would have been too much for dinner). We also decided to order dessert and certainly did not regret a moment. The quality of the food is outstanding, same as the presentation. My only recommendation for the owners is to try and consider every client as being a countryman even if they don't speak French or have trouble in speaking it. After all, Cogolin is located in an area where visitors come in large numbers every year. Special recommendation for this cozy small restaurant.

We have been to this restaurant on many occasions and are NEVER disappointed. The food served by the owner David is faultless; the textures, flavour and presentation are superb. The service , ambience and generosity are also for all the other restaurants in the area to try to aspire to. We can't wait to return to see David and his lovely wife again in August.

Still offers quality food but the atmosphere is still a little austere. We have visited this restaurant on a regular basis since it’s opening and we like supporting it but there is still scope for improvement concerning the front of house. The tall front of house chap is probably very nice but he does not exude much in the way of warmth. He is a bit ‘starchy’. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, he annoyingly asked us for our desert choice while ordering our starter and main course, while not doing so to the table of French diners next to us. Does he think this is normal in the UK? We politely explained we would choose our sweet after our main course.

one of the rare critics of this super restaurant was the acoustics. Being an old stone walled room explained this (plus being full of happy customers tends to be noisy!) the patrons have installed new flooring and a discreet suspended ceiling..... problem solved! and the food is still fab.

The restaurant still serves up great food and while they have employed a new front of house person it lacks the warmth of its nearby competitor. We went to Chez Nous and this restaurant on alternate evenings and my wife and I both thought Chez Nous was the better restaurant based on the food, ambience and front of house welcome. Both restaurants offer quality food and I still recommend visiting this restaurant.
