We ate dinner here just before Christmas to celebrate a birthday and really enjoyed it.
The decor is quite simple but nice. The service was efficient and quick but at the same time warm and friendly. It's definitely something that the team here work at and succeed in making customers feel relaxed.
There is a good range of dishes on offer which is based more or less on regional and french dishes. I thought the desserts were quite interesting and innovative. In particular the lemon meringue pie and the coconut and lime-marinaded pineapple chocolate cup (see the photo, it's easier to understand that way :)).
Overall I thought this was a good restaurant for a special occasion without completely breaking the bank.

This is one of our favourite restaurants in the area and we're lucky enough to have visited many many times across the seasons. It's cozy in the winter eating inside and delightful eating on the outside terrace in the warmer months with views to the north towards Grasse.
The service is always excellent and the food continues to get better. The various tasting menus are always good value especially at lunch time.
Can't wait until our next visit !

On a business trip on the French Riviera, a friend recommended the restaurant L'Amandier for lunch, and we were delighted. Nice atmosphere, lovely location, excellent food and the service was perfect, thanks to Maurice!

Although it's a windy trip up to Mougins it definitely worthwhile. Service is very friendly efficient and prompt. Food is excellent all round and a good wine list plus it's not overly expensive.

From the moment we arrived at this restaurant it provided the most amazing experience. Our waiter, Maurice, was a special find in the world of restaurant staff, not only was he extremely well informed, knew each of the dishes and their flavours and helped in our choices but he was a delight to talk to and perfectly attentive to our needs. When the food arrived it was stunning visually and the taste was exquisite. Every course was perfectly balanced and a total pleasure to eat.

Despite the fact that the terraces are now closed for the winter the staff were happy to arrange for us to take our coffee on the top terrace with the stunning views. We were lucky enough to meet the chef at the end of our meal and despite his busy lunch time he took the time to discuss the meal and when we asked about the star shaped potatoes he even arranged for a quick demonstration of how to make them from a lovely young chef called Aurelian, who was yet another example of the high quality of the staff in the restaurant.

All in all a destination to be added to every bucket list and trip to the area.
