We were told by locals to avoid this place: high prices, bad food, bad service. We didn't eat here but we went for a visit to the Place du Forum and scoped out the restaurant and were glad we ate elsewhere.

Nice place, a little bit more expensive than the other surrounding ones, it is located on the Van Gogh trail. Good to see at night. Our hotel told us not to eat there, that the customers who had been were disappointed since the new administration.

The.menu choice was really limited and the service was not great. We waited a long time for water and the steaks although medium rare ordered were overcooked and not the best quality. At the end of the meal to top it off we were told...More

Very poor service in initially seating us and taking our order. Seated us and then asked us to move to a less attractive spot on the patio as they then claimed that the first table was "reserved". At the second table the server left an...More
