A simple but very busy cafe restaurant with seating outdoors on the square next to the church or indoors which has Rex Century been totally redesigned and offers great seating. The menu is geared more to fast food, but of a very good quality and an excellent venue for a well priced lunch Service is slick and friendly

It's our first trip in France. And it is definitely the worst dinning experience I had in a foreign country. We were treated so badly. We spoke limited French, and the waiters use a 'French only ' attitude throughout the whole serving even one of them speaks good English. Nobody helped us on the menu, we had to guess what... More

Had a fun dinner out with friends tonight. I had duck which was a little tough. Fine place not a romantic setting, you are sitting pretty close to the people on either side. Staff were friendly enough.

We'd heard a lot about this place and it looked fabulous, on the plaza in the center of Mausanne. It was, to say the least, a huge disappointment. While we were seated right away, it took 15 minutes to place a drink order and another 10 before a pitcher of the local rosé arrived, along with a half bottle of... More

We've traveled all over Europe and this was our first time in Provence having arrived from Paris. We were famished, just having visited the beautiful castle at Les Baux. We stopped in the town of Le Paradou and came across this cafe. We asked the maitre'd to seat us. He barely acknowledged us but made us wait for about 10... More

The place is located on the main square of maussane. The outside patio by the fountain is enjoyable. Waiter was nice but it took a while to order our drinks. I did not eat there so can't rate that.

Nice spot in the Center of town. Good for a little afternoon drink and great vibe over looking the Center!

As a family we have used this Café for many, many years, but the visit this week was not up to the previous experiences. Menu was limited, especially for me as a vegetarian, only one salad available! The staff were ok but verging on the grumpy side where previous staff were always friendly, helpful and pleasant. The food was fine... More

The hamburger was dry but eatable, there was only one toilet in the busy restaurant, waiters walked recklessly with huge trays of dirty plates in between the long line created by people waiting for the toilet, floor under the table was full of food and leaves, and the kitchen was a disaster

The staff was not welcoming and the service was slow. Food ok though hamburger was over cooked. Only one toilet stall- not enough when restaurant is full.
