This is the best restaurant in St Raphael. Excellent chef, friendly attentive staff and the food is of the highest quality. A must when visiting St. Raphael.

My wife and me first walked passed the restaurant because of the purple lighting. I briefly looked at the menu whilst walking passed. Despite of the neon lighting we did decide to try it. We were pleasantly surprised by the authentic atmosphere and friendly staff. I had the risotto with prawns and scallops with a fling of strawberries. Unbelievable great... More

A very friendly welcome and a menu of freshly made traditional Italian dishes in this family restaurant. The menu clearly changes to reflect the fresh ingredients available in each season. A lovely restaurant with a great range of wines. The remarkable thing is how when you you select any wine from the menu they happily open a new bottle. You... More

After some very poor to average restaurants in St Raphael we found this to be head and shoulders above the rest. Service was excellent and the Chefs wife had a great knowledge of their excellent Italian wines. The food was really good and served with pride. Its not the cheapest of restaurants but well worth the money, Great starters and... More

Having spent a fair amount of time in Saint-Raphael over the past few years, I have found most restaurants to be very similar, with nothing outstanding. This Restaurant changed that, all our courses were excellent in every way, quality, flavour, quantity and price. The wine list had a good range of Italian wines at prices to suit most. Service was...

Greeted with friendly service and nice decor. Good selection of wines. The menu was small but the quality was fantastic. Had amazing truffle filled pasta (special for the day) and a chocolate lava cake to finish. Enjoyed thoroughly.

This is a real good family run restaurant. Our reservation was for Fri evening but, by mistake, was in their diary for the Sat. Although the restaurant was fully booked, the staff made up a two seat table for the three of us and, when a table became available, put the two together with the minimum of fuss. The food,... More

This was the worst meals we've had in Southern France. My husband had Spaghetti Bolognese which had a most unusual, bad taste which we could not identify so the dish was not eaten. I had fillet of beef which was 'ok' but the rest of the plate was occupied with very cheesy pasta spirals - I must have looked very... More

We had dinner at this quaint little restaurant with dear friends who live in St. Aygulf. It couldn't have been more wonderful! We arrived for our reservation at 8:00 and stayed until after 10:30, enjoying every bite and sip of our menu selections. Our waiter who has been there for five years made sure our experience was super from start... More
