Some good suggestions here- especially Flaveur which is out of this world!

I went to the Bastide st Antoine in Grasse. It is a beautiful setting and as we sat down I was looking forward to a delicious meal. However, We were not even given menus for 30 minutes! We wanted to order a bottle of Champagne as an apero but by the time the rude, arrogant staff deigned to speak to us the moment had passed.

There were four of us, including a chef for a VIP. One of the party was a vegetarian, which is never easy in these sort of places, but you would think that maybe a 'top chef' may have been able to russle up - I mean 'create' something. Well he couldn't. They were served plain steamed asparagus with a foie gras ice-cream on top! When this was returned due to the fact it was, erm foie gras. It was replaced with plain, steamed asparagus! Considering the price of this place, I think it is appalling. The rest of the meal was just as dire and the staff awful.

I really don't know how these people get away with it. But if you don't want to eat much, enjoy terrible service and have loads of money to splash - this may be the place for you! If you don't, avoid!

You'll want to give this a try: http://www.loucigalon.fr/#/accueil/ Excellent. Not exactly inexpensive, but very good indeed. The chef comes from the very famous Bruno of Truffle frame. Now he is doing his own thing in Valbonne. You will certainly be hearing more of him. Bon appetit!
