Have been to this restaurant several years ago, before the Michelin star - so we had great expectations. Went for the tasting menu and some dishes were very nice, however not outstanding. The meat was hard work,some of it impossible to chew - so we had to leave some of it on the plate. No comments from the waiter. Good... More

French only menu however the waiter was very helpful and the service was great. This is a great cosy restaurant conveniently situated just one street back from the really busy area. We sat on the terrace which was very pleasant. There was only one waiter, they could probably do with one more, but he did a very good job trying... More

We ordered the Surprise menu and received dishes that were part of the sheaper menus. On one of the dishes the same sauce was served as on one of the amuses ! Not one dish had the flavor that one would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. We did not see the chef nor his spouse who used to supervise... More

This Michelin stared restaurant is a great gem in Sainte Maxime. This small restaurant has les than 10 tables. Most guests choose one of the set menus. The food and drink are great. We enjoyed ourselves. A similar restaurant in St Tropez charges much more than La Badiane does. Definitly worth a detour.

It was one of the best fine dining experience of us! Everything we ate was extremely delicious. Restaurant was on a silent and cute street. Staff was ver friendly and helpful. You definately must try here if you visit St. Maxime, or visit St. Maxime to try this restaurant.

This restaurant offers a great fine dining alternative to the other restaurants in town. It's small but offers a non pretentious Michelin experience. From the four menus we opted for the €54 one and had a great four course dinner plus a few extra tasters as is the case in fine dining. This is not like some Michelin places with... More

I love this restaurant because the quality and the taste of the food is so fresh and well put together. We had the carte Blanche at 92 € and enjoyed every mouthful. The front of house is charming and informative, but I feel on occasion over stretched. My only complaint is that the meal was three and a half hours... More
