My wife and I visited this restaurant at lunchtime. We asked for the plat de jour. It was called gardien de taureau. I guess it takes its name for the Camargue where there are white horses and black bulls. It was very tasty and I ate all mine. My wife felt that there was too much beef and too few... More

We had pizza for lunch, couldn't make up our minds which to have so chose one spicy the other Nicoise and had half each. Lovely thin base. I asked for tea and in the French way they bring a pot of hot water and a teabag. Except the water was barely warm.

They make excellent pizza's here. All of the food is home cooked and the service very efficient. It isn't the prettiest of places, however I always use it when I am in the area and never had a bad meal.

The waitress was really friendly and the food was okay, I had pizza, it was enjoyable but nothing special. Overall I enjoyed the evening, especially as the waitress was so nice and there are trees growing through the roof. The prices are reasonable too.

Why only one star? Because there is no way to give it a negative star. A trip here in Feb 2016 with two adults and two children (3 and 6) was the worst dining experience I've had. There are maybe 15-20 tables at this resto and only 5 were occupied when we got there. The nice waiter (high/secondary school, perhaps)... More

A comfortable stand-by for years, the Ty Rex has undergone several changes in management. The latest incarnation seems tired already, and my first visit rather mundane. i have no idea why restauranteurs do not make their own french fries as a matter of course, but they don't, and the frozen varieties that are so beloved of this genre of eatery...

For what it is, it's OK. Avoid the menu other than Pizza or a salad. House wine is good. Service amateurish but friendly. Overall fine for a quick supper with family but nothing special.

Our first visit to le Tyrex after its reopening in July. Picture this, a group of four young men hanging around outside the entrance, one couple inside eating and my husband & I. We asked for a table for two and with a waive of his hand, the young waiter indicated that we should sit anywhere. The table I chose... More

Took the kids there for an evening meal but came away disappointed. Waited approx 45 mins for just five pizzas (they weren't that busy) which tasted less than average. After reading mainly positive reviews about Le Tyrex we were hoping for better. Maybe they were having an 'off' day..............

Thank Andrew H
