We dropped by chance trying to find the place to eat at 2pm. The restaurant still was serving. All we ate was excellent. Service is not fast and u should be prepared to take your time sitting on the nice square. So dont be in a rush!

Absolutely priviliged location bordering a tastefully renovated public place somewhat behind the townhall with a nice view on the old harbour. Mediocre, crude cuisine using decent products without any hint of creativity or even a personal note. Previous excited comments did not match with any of the meals we ordered. Regarding the available amazing quality of either simple cooking at... More

Received a tip from someone who said she had a crush on the chef and that the food actually made her cry. Well, I will say the food was impressive, among the best on our trip. We literally tried everything on the menu, including the dessert, all of which was beautifully presented with flavor to match. Attentive service from the... More

Stopped by for dinner. There several set menu options. The food was good, tasty but the portions were meager, especially for the hefty price. The place also has a cockroach problem as I saw a couple roaming around.

I had been here before with friends, and we had sat outside under the olive trees on the terrace. This time the rain clouds were gathering, and so we chose to sit inside. There was a set lunch for 30 euros, with three choices for each course. We both chose chicken livers on a grilled slice of bread covered with... More

I cannot comment on the food; however, I booked a table for two for 9 pm, and when I arrived at the appointed hour the chef/owner insisted I had booked it for 8 and got pretty angry with me when I mildly told him I was quite sure I had booked for 9 pm. The kitchen closes at 10 pm.... More

Having traveled throughout Provence for the last 4 weeks, eating at top notch restaurants, I found this place to be an absolute rip-off. We came here because of the good reviews, but it was certainly not my experience. I shared the menu with my young son, which is usually sufficient. But I couldn't believe the incredibly stingy portion sizes. I... More

Booked via email with immediate response confirming, friendly welcome by the lady who spoke far better English than we do French, both waitresses were helpful in translating the menu and ensuring my wife who was pregnant ordered the right thing for her and seemed to manage the full square really well. Two choices per course, we ordered one of each... More

This is a very cool spot. The restaurant is set just off the Old Port on a patio. We ordered our rose wine and food tickets at a stand and then chose a spot at a low-slung table on lounge chairs. The waiters and waitresses bring trays of delicious food around for you to pick your dish. Try the chickpea... More
