Nice place, but the service in slow and not proper. Just pizza and salads were offered from the menu. Do not go there!

Good place for a drink. Cannot understand why people eat there. Food nothing to shout about but the place is always packed despite better restaurants nearby. It is buzzy and has a great ambience.

We eat at the Arcades very often but unfortunately during our last visit the pizza was just tasteless. Overcooked (read: burnt) bottom with the top under cooked. Be careful Arcades...you are slipping on your usually good standard of food.

This is a busy ,bustling place. Food is good, service polite &efficient. Varied menu. Tables close together so not a place for secrets. One of the places in the square that we like to visit when in Valbonne.

This restaurant is perfect for families. It gets busy in the season so make sure to book or get there before 7.

I believe around10:30 pm. It's a lovely lively square in the evening and the French tend to eat late. I haven't however visited in October.
