Very nice restaurant on Place du Marche. The waiter offered good suggestions of meal and desserts. Steak of bull was great and local fish plate (brandade de Nimes) was also great. Go for the sampler dessert, just great!

Decided to eat here as it was Al Fresco and were happy that we did. Chose the 3 course menu for 13.90 Euros. When the waiter realised that we spoke English, he brought us an English menu making it easier to choose than guessing what...More

The squid and the steak were tough, so, we couldn't even finish them. The restaurant at such great spot in the square should make more efforts. The staff is nice, though.

Lovely staff, brilliant location (especially when the sun is shining!!)..However, food is nothing special. I would probably just recommend this place for coffee and maybe an ice-cream in the sun!

My daughter and I had a late lunch here one Saturday afternoon. Even at 3.30 all outside tables were occupied and it's easy to understand why. Apart from the excellent warm and sunny weather, the staff were attentive, efficient and friendly. We both ordered bruschettas,...More
