Stopped here for glass of wine, coffee and cake. The restaurant is located above the fountain in the centre of the rampart. Cake coffee and wine were delicious but expensive!

We both ordered the ravioli with pesto. It was the best we've had. Perfect balsamic reduction with shaved parmesan. The house wine (blanc) was excellent. Service was good - not rushed but timely. It was mid-afternoon on a Saturday so it was not crowded. Several tables came after us so it became busier. Highly recommend!

We returned again for lunch on our annual family holiday as last years experience was so fabulous. Our party of five had main courses only and two deserts. The chicken and potato gratin was superb, my husband had the King of St Paul De Vence burger which had everything on it including frois grois. The children are salmon and home... More

Fantastic little restaurant. The food was excellent. Plan on spending some time there as it is NOT a quick in and out dining experience. In addition to the ravioli PLEASE try the fries. They are amazing. Enjoy!

In all fairness it was busy in town as it was Bastille weekend. Waited a bit for a table and once seated was rushed to order. I was given a menu while I was waiting to review and did not see it again once seated. Only remembered filet mignon so ... I ordered that, med rare. When it arrived it... More

The food was delicious (worth 5) but our evening was marred by the waiters' erratic service and manners (I'll be generous and give them 3). For a pleasant evening given the choice Le Tilleul is a no-brainer.

We were referred by our hotel and it was a great recommendation. The food was delicious! We would have liked to sit outside on the terrace but unfortunately it was a bit chilly that evening. The dining room inside was very nice though.

Great place for lunch or to just grab a beer or glass of wine. Beware though, in typical French fashion, service can be hit or miss...pretentious and of course arrogant and not receptive. Experienced both in a two day span and was surprised both times? Besides that, food was good....suggest beef tartare or burger or salad. Lunch ends by 2:30-3:00... More
