We chose to eat here having really enjoyed a meal here last summer. It is in a lovely location in the square with the waiters crossing the road to deliver your food and dodging the traffic in the mean time! The Moules Gratinee with garlic were great as a starter but my special of the day - Filet de Rouget... More

Until this visit I would always have recommended this restaurant to anyone visiting the area, however this time it was not good. Our aperitif never arrived, jug of water didn't arrive and basket of bread delivered to table after food was finished. Not enough staff would seem to be the problem. The food was ok but not great, some of... More

Despite being the first seated this evening, the meal was a long drawn out and painful procedure. We will not return. Tuna was so overcooked, it was dry and tough. Some aspects of the meal were ok, but the service was very poor. No reduction was offered on the bill, just a shrug! The kitchen are obviously unable to cope,... More

Good food without a doubt but it is unacceptable to wait 30 minutes (even in France) with no hello or explanations or attention and no water. I had to stand up and point this out in order to have our order taken.

Maussane les Alpilles is small. Movie set small. And like a movie set about Provence it has all the charm you see in the movies. It is picture postcard perfect. Everything is walkable. The restaurants run their food from the kitchens across the street to the public plaza. It is fun to watch, and the food is simple, fresh and... More

We found this restaurant and despite the not so good comments we have decided to try and we were convinced. Tasty simple food in a charming ambiance. I recommend for a quick lunch.

AS the name implies this place specializes in fish dishes. The best Dover Sole in a long time. Service relaxed but attentive. You can eat inside the restaurant or on the place.

The fish is always fresh. Interesting menu with plenty of raw or cold choices. Really enjoyed the steamed mussles as well.

We went there twice. The first time grilled fish and "marmite royale" were absolutely fabulous (not cheap anyway). Second experience was less than perfect, with a Bouillabaisse that was good fish-wise (all very fresh stuff), but tasted just like separate standard fish soup over boiled - good - fish. Definitely not worth the 55€. Stick to the "Marmite", its more... More

this used to be one of our favorite Maussane restaurants- the fish was fresh & well prepared, service great & the welcome/ambiance was warm & sincere. We have eaten here twice this summer and have been very disappointed in all of the above. The seiche was always one of my favorite dishes- tender & succulent & with a delicious persilade... More
